Yesterday support seen as Shanghai base metal prices rose, with zinc climbing for a sixth day and hitting a two-week high as inventories in China languish at their lowest in a decade. Zinc stocks in warehouses monitored by the Shanghai Futures Exchange fell 11.8 percent last week to 30,800 tonnes, their lowest since October 2007.

Meanwhile, zinc inventories in warehouses approved by the London Metal Exchange have dropped for eight straight days. ShFE zinc has lost 15 percent year-to-date, weighed down by concerns over global oversupply and fears the U.S-China trade row will hurt demand for industrial metals.

Last night the US dollar slumped to the lowest in four weeks at 94.76 while the Mexican peso climbed higher after the two countries reached a preliminary trade deal that could replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Now Market participants should monitor developments such as Germany’s actual monthly retail sales in July, US wholesale inventories in July, and its Conference Board (CB) consumer confidence index for August.
