Global zinc short-term outlook June 2018

Report summary

Base metal markets have been roiled by the escalating trade tensions between the US and China. The consequent "risk-off" sell off push the zinc price to its lowest level for ten months. Meanwhile, the ongoing environmental crackdown continues to hinder Chinese smelter production with May's output the lowest for four years.
