An open import arbitrage window is likely to accelerate an influx of cargoes from the bonded stocks to the domestic market this week. Global nickel consumption estimated at 2.4 million tonnes this year, include overstocking of stainless steel by producers earlier in 2019.

Also a major influence is the trade dispute between the United States and China, the world's two largest economies, and its potential to disrupt growth and demand. Nickel stocks in warehouses monitored by the Shanghai Futures Exchange, at around 9,000 tonnes, are a fifth of the level in January 2018.

Investors took heart from China's move to ease financing rules to boost local government spending on public works, and a possible cut in U.S. interest rates. While U.S. President Donald Trump said he was ready to impose more punitive tariffs on Chinese imports, Beijing said it is open for more trade talks with Washington.

China said it would allow local governments to use proceeds from special bonds as capital for major investment projects, in a bid to support the slowing economy amid an escalating trade war with the United States.
