From news side, yesterday released data showed US February PCE price index increased 1% year-on-year and, dropped 0.1% month-on-month; core PCE increased 1.7% year-on-year and, raised 0.1% month-on-month. February personal consumption expenditures month-on-month increase range met expectation but, the largest increase at 0.5% over eight months had sharply dropped to 0.1%. This data is the inflation index which Fed paid highly attention on, though core PCE price index year-on-year value failed to meet expectation, it still keep the 1.7% year-on-year increase range and, was leveled off with last month; set the highest inflation level for second straight month since October 2014. Headline PCE growth slowed down maybe because of prior oil price growth slowed down, from this perspective, March overall inflation might continue rallying and, core inflation as well might continue strong. But from mid-term perspective, since last year April, May and June was the high point from annual oil price revive trend, on the occasion cardinal utility might lead to inflation increase range slowed down along with narrowed oil price downward speed but, Fed monetary policy was bound to take this into account, hence, this condition should not impact a lot on policy path; it was only a matter of time on next interest rate hike. Fed funds rate futures calculated the probability on interest rate hike in June was 34.6%, slightly decreased from prior value.

Soybean from South America would concentrated arrive ports and, demand on shipping from oil plants were strong, confidence on raising price was weak; soybean meal spots rally trend would be less than futures. US soybean fluctuation level up revised, short term was still in reviving.

From fundamental side, domestic spots were discount RMB 120-RMB 70; downstream receiving as demand and, merchants were in cautious. Last Friday Shanghai real estate new policy hammered the recently over optimism sentiment. We will focus on variation of LME inventory and spots premium in this week; if inventory increases the spots premium will decrease and, probability on copper price decreasing would increase. Technically, copper price will revive in as short term and, we wait for the opportunity to short in the second half week.

From registration system, ST Bo Yuan delisting might again pave the IPO expansion and registration which mentioned in the thirteenth five year plan and, president Liu just indicated would not one-sided development instead of not to develop it. Overall, this revive trend was weak and, we recommend operating in fluctuation mindset.
