SHANGHAI, Nov 8 (SHMET) – offers for spot lead market changed little on November 8. Smelters made normal sales. Market trades were low as downstream producers made a limited purchase.

SHFE lead three month contract price stabilized, mainly driven by shorts closing. Some smelters were unwilling to lower lead price as they had less spot lead inventory. Market trades, however, had a sign of weakening.
