To inventory or continue, but out of the warehouse strength has weakened; Import and export: on May 30, the US Department of Commerce made a positive initial ruling on anti-dumping duties on Chinese aluminum wires and cables, ruling that the margin of dumping was 58.51% to 63.47%, and that US exports accounted for about 3% to 5% of China's total exports. The aluminum cable industry is even worse, but many enterprises are turning to the export cooperation of Belt and Road Initiative countries; On May 29, the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Commerce decided to impose provisional anti-dumping duties on Chinese imports of aluminum profiles, with the duty rate range from 2.46% to 35.58%. According to SMM statistics, Vietnamese export profiles accounted for about 10.16% of the total in 2018, the highest proportion. The investigation shows that it has a great impact on enterprises in Guangdong, Guangxi, Shandong and other places.

Spot end: yesterday, the transaction price in Shanghai was between 14150 and 14170 yuan / ton, which was about 10 yuan / ton lower than last Friday. For the month's rising water of 10 to 20 yuan / ton, the shippers were still active in shipping, and some traders were willing to receive the goods at a low price. But the actual deal was slightly deadlocked. There was some replenishment on Monday, but the overall enthusiasm was not high. Today, the overall transaction in East China is average. Conclusion: under the background of poor macro performance, the non-ferrous plate collectively weakens, and Shanghai Aluminum, under the expectation of weaker demand, is under pressure in stages, but it is still the strongest variety in the colored, and in the long run, it is still in the storage cycle in the whole year. The space for decline is relatively limited, and there is a risk of falling back on one side, but it is still the preferred multi-head configuration in the relatively strong and weak arbitrage of the non-ferrous plate.
