1. Market Highlights

Nickel cathode prices rose this month driven by most market participants' refilling stocks of Shanghai-based nickel and LME nickel, as they were in anticipation of lower reserve requirements and interest rate cuts in the domestic futures market, as well as trade expectations between China and the US. But the spot market saw few transactions due to the soft demand of completed stainless steel product market and the slow consumption of stocks, as well as the wait-and-see attitudes of stainless steel plants toward the nickel cathode market.Asian Metal Copyright Reasons are as follows: The transition period of new energy subsidies recession will come to the end this month; downstream demand for precursor was low, and the market transactions were limited; most NCM precursor producers still held certain battery grade nickel sulfate stocks.Asian Metal Copyright Affected by the low price of stainless steel prices, downstream stainless steel plants were bearish on the ferronickel and only purchased on the rigid demand, leading to sluggish transactions on ferronickel market.

On battery market, demand for battery grade nickel sulfate was weak with prices of the material decreasing. Reasons are as follows: The transition period of new energy subsidies recession will come to the end this month; downstream demand for precursor was low, and the market transactions were limited; most NCM precursor producers still held certain battery grade nickel sulfate stocks.

Demand for nickel cathode and electroplating grade nickel sulfate declined as the electroplating market entered the off-season and environmental protection inspection was strict.
