SHANGHAI, Jul 9 (SMM) – Spot aluminium trades across east and south China weakened in the morning of Tuesday July 9, as sellers held offers firm after prices fell for two consecutive days.

With a premium of a maximum of 10 yuan/mt over the SHFE 1907 contract, spot trades in Shanghai and Wuxi occurred between 13,690-13,700 yuan/mt before climbing to 13,700-13,710 yuan/mt. This was down 40 yuan/mt from Monday morning. A major trader purchased at 13,710 yuan/mt in early morning trade.
