In the middle of the year, the upstream lithium carbonate operated weakly, and the support for the lithium hydroxide market was weak. The domestic downstream purchase intention was not high, and the transaction was mainly just needed. In addition, the foreign demand was weakened, and the market mentality was insufficient. The focus of the lithium hydroxide market negotiation was downward. The Spring Festival holiday was approaching, the market transaction was limited, and the enterprise quotation was mainly stable. After the holiday, the market is gradually recovering, the wait-and-see atmosphere is strong, and the focus of negotiation is temporarily stable.

Demand is expected to improve, and tin price rises (1.6-1.13)

Investors can buy and sell investments according to the changes in the K-bar chart. Red indicates: rising; Green means: down; The height of the K column indicates the range of rise and fall. It can be seen from the above figure that the tin price has risen continuously after November 2022 due to the influence of macro factors.


This week, the futures market of Shanghai and tin rose sharply in the week, with an increase of 7.46%. However, the recent continuous rise of tin prices was mainly boosted by the expected positive macroeconomic factors and the market’s risk aversion mentality, which affected the performance of funds on the floor. In the spot market, affected by the futures market, tin prices rose this week. Basically, although the production of tin mines in Peru is suspended and the market is expected to cause supply tension, the impact is limited at present. The root cause of this round of rise is still the expected improvement of downstream demand. Recently, the electronic consumption industry has gradually warmed up. The market expects that the overall demand for tin will rise to some extent in 2023, boosting the market mentality. As the holiday approaches, the upstream smelter starts to operate on a low level, and the market supply is slightly tight. The stock preparation before the holiday has ended, and the subsequent market performance needs to wait until the market is clear after the holiday.
