Copper: Three-month LME copper jumped 2.33% to end at $6,599/mt on Tuesday. It is likely to trade between $6,550-6,610/mt today.

The most-active SHFE 2009 copper contract settled 1.69% higher at 51,890 yuan/mt in overnight trading. It is expected to move between 51,800-52,200 yuan/mt today, while spot premiums are seen at 70-100 yuan/mt.

Copper prices jumped as the US dollar index fell for five straight days to record a new two-year low of 92.12 on Tuesday amid the ongoing effects of the Federal Reserve’s stimulus programs, and as China’s central bank injected liquidity into the market. However, the Trump administration tightened restrictions on China’s telecommunications giant Huawei and the US coronavirus relief package talks remained in a deadlock, which may weigh on copper prices.

Aluminium: Three-month LME aluminium trended higher on Tuesday, closing 0.91% firmer at $1,773/mt. Open interest fell 10,706 lots to 797,000 lots. It is expected to move between $1,750-1,780/mt today.

The most-liquid SHFE 2009 aluminium contract ended 0.55% higher at 14,505 yuan/mt in overnight trading. It is likely to trade between 14,450-14,700 yuan/mt today, while spot premiums are seen lower at 70-90 yuan/mt.

Zinc: Three-month LME zinc rose 1% to close at $2,474.5/mt in choppy trading. Zinc stocks across LME warehouses expanded 4,625 mt or 2.1% to 224,750 mt. Weak US dollar, the S&P 500 index which rose to its highest level ever on Tuesday and optimism over the coronavirus vaccine bolstered market sentiment. LME zinc is expected to move between $2,440-2,490/mt today.

The most-traded SHFE 2009 zinc contract settled 0.3% firmer at 19,965 yuan/mt in overnight trading. China’s central bank injected 700 billion yuan of MLF loans into the market, galvanising orders from electric power and steel tower remained robust and domestic orders of die-cast zinc alloy improved slightly. These will bolster SHFE zinc in the short term. The September contract is likely to trade between 19,600-20,100 yuan/mt today, while spot premiums for domestic 0# Shuangyan are seen lower at 110-130 yuan/mt.

Tin: Three-month LME tin bounced back from an intraday low of $17,265/mt to finish the day 0.92% higher at $17,645/mt. Pressure above will be seen at around the 20-day moving average of $17,752/mt today.
