SHANGHAI, May 17 (SMM) - Yangshan copper premiums stood at $62-84/mt under warrants today. The average price was $73/mt, $0.5/mt lower than the previous trading day. Quotes under B/L stood at $49-70/mt. The average price was $59.5/mt, $0.5/mt lower than the previous trading day with the quotation period in June. The quotation refers to the prices of goods arriving at ports in late May and in the first half of June. The premiums of LME 0-3 were $17/mt. The import losses were around 600 yuan/mt over the 2206 copper contract as of 10 a. m. today.

Copper prices in the overseas market rebounded slightly due to the macro policies in China, lowering the price ratio. Therefore, the market transaction became slack amid the closed import window. According to the research today, in terms of warrants, the market saw few offers and inquiries. In the early trading, traders mainly held a wait-and-see attitude and stopped offering quotes as the price ratio was low. Besides, according to some traders, they are waiting for the logistics in Shanghai to be resumed in June, so there is no transaction in the market for the time being. On the bill of lading front, in early trading, standard-quality copper was traded at $65/mt, and the market saw almost no transactions.

At present, the high-quality pyro-copper premiums were around $84/mt under warrants, and mainstream pyro-copper and hydro-copper were quoted at $78/mt and $62/mt respectively. The high-quality copper under the bill of lading was quoted at $70/mt, and that of mainstream pyro-copper and hydro-copper were $65/mt and $49/mt respectively.
