Raw material

Nickel

Nickel futures price vibrated at a high level. By Friday, 1# electrolyzed nickel price in spot market was 103,025 yuan/t, up 3675 yuan/t in a week (21 June). By Thursday, LME three-month nickel futures price closed at 12,710 dollars/t, up 410 dollars/t in a week.

As increasing risk of global trade, WTO warned that global trade growth is expected to slow down in the second quarter of 2019. At the same time, IMF and other organizations cut their expectation for global economy growth. Of this, negative atmosphere of macro situation dragged down nickel market.

It was said that miners in Indonesia resumed shipment as weather gradually improved, so nickel ore inventory at ports is expected to increase. At present, the profit of nickel pig iron metallurgy both at home and Indonesia, which will drive plants to finish construction project. Although nickel price was strong, terminal demand was still weak. Facing oversupply and shrinking demand, nickel price is expected to fall.

SteelHome predicts nickel price will go downtrend dragged down by pessimistic expectation.
