Market summary

SunSirs data analysts believe that after COVID-19, with the recovery of the domestic economic environment, the production and sales of domestic new energy vehicles and mobile phones have gradually recovered; while in the international market, in order to stimulate the economy, many governments have introduced economic stimulus policies, and European markets have been stimulated by policies. The production and sales of new energy vehicles have increased significantly, which is positive for the cobalt market. Recently, non-ferrous metal transactions in the stock market have been active. The non-ferrous sector in the spot market has gained significant momentum. Hot money in the market has entered the non-ferrous metal market. The bullish attitude of the non-ferrous sector has become prominent. As a small metal product, cobalt is vulnerable to hot money, which has set off a new wave of investment boom. Under the influence of positive news, the cobalt market may re-emerge, and the cobalt price may hit the short-term peak, but the overall supply and demand of the cobalt market is not imbalanced. The cobalt market has insufficient support on the supply and demand side, and the cobalt price is difficult to hit the 300,000 peak in the short term.
