In terms of nickel, today, Shanghai nickel opened low and dived in the afternoon, the decline quickly expanded to more than 2%, and the futures price has fallen to a low of more than a month. SMM believes that recent nickel prices fluctuate mainly with macro factors, and the market releases the power of adjustment after a wave of weak market in the early days of the US dollar. in addition, many short-term factors are apparent in terms of fundamentals. in addition to the positive rising prices of nickel mines, there are also negative effects of stainless steel prices peaking to make nickel prices under pressure. therefore, although nickel prices do not have a long-term sharp downward trend, they are also relatively lack of power to pick up in the short term. It is estimated that this week, Shanghai nickel is 114000-120000 yuan / ton, Lunni is 14800-15400 US dollars / ton.
