SMM7 March 22: most of the non-ferrous metals market is red today. By the end of the day, international copper rose 1.14%, Shanghai copper rose 1.13%, Shanghai Aluminum Bank rose 0.53%, Shanghai lead rose 1.24%, Shanghai zinc fell 0.69%, Shanghai nickel rose 0.64%, and Shanghai tin fell 0.42%. In terms of tin, the Shanghai-tin 2108 contract is affected by the joint effect of the active profit-taking transfer contract of long funds and the macro-control pressure on commodity prices in the overall policy of the market atmosphere, so the probability of reducing positions in this high position will gradually increase in the future. In the long run, before there is no fundamental change in the fundamental contradiction between supply and demand, the probability of more shocks is still high.

[brief Review of SMM Tin] the trading performance of Shanghai and Tin in reducing positions in a narrow range is slightly light.

In terms of copper, after a slight rise in the morning market in Shanghai today, the center of gravity focused on a narrow range of 68550 yuan / ton. After the second period, copper prices rose rapidly. After touching a high of 68850 yuan / ton, the center of gravity fell back slightly to around 68750 yuan / ton. In the afternoon, as the bulls entered the market, the center of gravity rose all the way up, pulling up to 69000 yuan / ton at the end of the day, and finally closed at 69000 yuan / ton. Today, the opening of the KDJ line crosses upward, the MACD line maintains the red column, and the solid column passes through the 20-day, 5-day and 10-day moving average. This evening, we will focus on the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits at the beginning of the week to see if Shanghai Copper can gain upward momentum again.

[brief Review of SMM Copper Futures] the bullish power transferred to the 09 contract and Shanghai Copper once again stood at the 69000 yuan / ton mark.

In terms of lead, spot prices rose again today, with dismal trading of bulk orders in the spot market, delivery of long orders, and a slight expansion of electrolytic lead and recycled lead discounts during the day. Today, road traffic in Henan is gradually recovering, but the accumulation of lead ingots is still slowing down this week, and the lead level may be high during the support period. at night, we still need to pay attention to the first-line pressure level above Shanghai lead.

[brief Review of SMM lead] the main lead bulls in Shanghai once again increase their positions in an attempt to challenge the first-line target of Wanliu.

In terms of zinc, the domestic supply has gradually increased, weakening the market's dependence on imported zinc, and imports have maintained a loss for a long time, but considering that the arrival of Kazakh zinc ingots has been delayed due to logistics and transportation problems, it is expected that the follow-up will gradually improve, and refined zinc imports are expected to rise by about 42000 tons month-on-month or rebound in July. With the recovery of domestic smelter production and the continued inflow of dumping and storage into the market, the demand for imported zinc is expected to be relatively limited in August, and refined zinc imports are expected to fall below 40,000 tons again in August.

[SMM analysis] imports of refined zinc fell sharply in June and may recover in July

For the black system, the thread rose 1.09%, the hot coil fell 0.29%, the coking coal rose 0.02%, the coke rose 0.07%, the iron ore fell 5.32%, and the stainless steel rose 0.11%. In terms of coke, the Shandong coke market is weak and stable, and the market mentality is weak. A new round of environmental supervision team has been stationed in Shandong, and coke enterprises in Weifang, Jining, Heze and other areas are facing inspection and production is unstable, but most coking enterprises maintain early production restrictions, and only a few coke enterprises increase their production limitations. and due to the influence of crude steel reduction and environmental inspection, the production and overhaul of blast furnaces in steel mills has increased, a mainstream steel plant in Shandong continues to suspend receipt of goods, and other steel mills purchase as needed.

[SMM Coke spot Daily Review] there is still room for coke prices to fall after inspection.

In terms of precious metals, Shanghai gold fell 0.86%, while Shanghai silver rose 1.16%. International gold prices fell on Thursday, hovering near more than a week's lows, weighed down by a stronger dollar and a rebound in willingness to take risks.
