SHANGHAI, Mar. 6 (SMM) – SHFE 1306 aluminum contracts, the most active one, opened slightly higher at RMB 14,775/mt on March 6, and broke through RMB 14,800/mt shortly after the opening.

SHFE aluminum led gains among base metals, thanks to the rebound in the Shanghai Composite Index and expectations for favorable policies to help smelters reverse losses from falling spot aluminum prices and to ease oversupply pressure. In this context, the most-traded SHFE aluminum should hold stable at RMB 14,800/mt in the short term.
