This week, domestic social inventories are still mainly rising. The downstream is in the off-peak and peak season, but there is no significant improvement in the downstream, and the current demand is still limited. Today, there are some bargain hunting in the spot market, but the overall situation is still on the sidelines and on-demand procurement is the main focus. In a market where downstream demand has not yet improved, lead prices will continue to fluctuate in the short term.
