SHANGHAI, Mar. 9 (SMM) – On Friday, the reduced inflation pressure aroused optimism in spot aluminum markets. Downstream buyers and middlemen were actively purchasing ahead of the weekend, while cargo holders were moving goods cautiously, waiting for spot discounts over the SHFE current month aluminum price to narrow further. Thus, the limited supply drove up spot prices in South China, with traded prices for main transactions rising to RMB 15,930-15,950/mt. A few sellers raised quotations to RMB 15,960/mt, but deals were sparse at the higher prices. Transactions decreased with aluminum prices moving up.
