In the domestic zinc market, the trend of zinc price in Shanghai futures market swung lower, the futures market went down, which was bad for the spot market. With the continuous and substantial increase of zinc ingot output, the zinc market has changed from outstripped supply to oversupply, and the oversupply is increasing; in terms of demand, the demand of zinc market is cold, and there is no obvious positive stimulus. Generally speaking, the supply of zinc market increases month by month, the demand does not pick up significantly, the oversupply of zinc market aggravates, the futures market falls, which collapses the cost support of the spot zinc market, and the spot price of zinc market fluctuates and falls. At the same time, due to the cost pressure of zinc ingot, there is limited space for zinc ingot to fall, and it is expected that zinc price will fluctuate and fall slightly in the future.
