Report summary

The enthusiasm for zinc in June was sustained into July lifting the price to $2842/t, its second highest level this year. However, investor sentiment was rattled by an influx of zinc into the LMEs warehouses and a 13% month on month rise in Chinese refined production in June. The combination encouraged investors to take profits and the price slipped lower.
