SHANGHAI, Aug 12 (SMM) – SHFE nonferrous metals broadly fell on Wednesday August 12 as negotiations of coronavirus relief package were in a stalemate and China’s social financing scale for July missed expectations.

The ferrous complex all closed lower. Iron ore fell 0.89%, hot-rolled coil weakened 0.13% and rebar shed 0.55%.

An SMM survey showed that 35 steelmakers in China plan to produce a total of 10.42 million mt of hot-rolled coils and plates in August, up 6.6% from the realised output in July.

Planned output of construction steel rebar across China’s major blast furnace steelmakers is estimated to fall 3.32% from the realised production in July to 8.88 million mt in August, showed an SMM survey.
