On the macroeconomic front, the Chinese yuan strengthened both onshore and offshore on Monday, and the US dollar has been volatile today. There are signs of a rebound in the domestic industrial sector, and metals in the overseas market saw a rebound in the afternoon. One of the reasons for the rise on the London Metal Exchange (LME) is the stabilization of the Chinese economy, which has raised expectations for an improvement in metal demand. China is one of the world’s largest consumers of metals, so its economic situation has a significant impact on the metal market.

Nickel sulfate prices have stabilized and risen, and the supply and demand situation for pure nickel in China may continue to be loose. New production capacity for pure nickel continues to expand, and LME nickel inventories are slowly accumulating. Spot transactions are mainly driven by actual demand. The situation with Indonesian nickel ore and the peak season demand are still in a verification phase. It is expected that there is a significant probability of a weak rebound in Shanghai nickel prices in the short term.
