Cancelled warrants -- zinc earmarked for delivery --at more than 70 percent of LME stocks at 299,875 tonnes are fuelling concern of a tight LME market.

Total stocks at eight-year lows are also down 35 percent since October. Premiums for zinc held in China's bonded zones are near their highest levels this year at $195-$200 from about $130 earlier this year. The discount for cash over the three-month contract has narrowed to near zero from around $20 a tonne on June 12, another sign of a tighter LME market. World Bureau of Metal Statistics (WBMS) reported Wednesday global zinc supply was in 106,000 tonnes of deficit during January-April 2017, although output registered a 3.1% growth.
