As the epidemic returns, many institutions expect the European Central Bank to maintain stability this week, but in view of the deteriorating economic outlook in the euro zone, Lagarde will release a signal to increase QE at the December meeting.

4. Analysis, summary and outlook
SunSirs analysts believe that the United States and the European Union have successively launched stimulus policy signals to stimulate the market recovery, which is good for the zinc market. However, the epidemic in the European Union and other places has intensified in the past few weeks, resulting in new local blockade restrictions and the possibility of economic pressure again. Is rising. The macroeconomic environment is not ideal, and the zinc market will be under greater pressure in the future. It is expected that the zinc market will have limited growth momentum in the future. Generally speaking, the positive signs of macro policies have continued to stimulate the zinc market to pick up. However, the global economic environment has not performed well and the effect of policy stimulus is yet to be determined. The zinc price is expected to fluctuate slightly in the future.
