As a result of the price rebound, the holder shipment is very active and the middleman is willing to accept the goods convergence, the market shows more and less. Downstream due to a few days ago some of the stock, superimposed Friday fear of high sentiment is obvious, did not show signs of weekend stock. The overall deal in East China on Friday was fine.

Summary: at present, under the expectation of accelerating the storage market brought about by consumption in the peak season in September, the profits of the electrolytic aluminum industry have been repaired, but not from the sharp rise in absolute prices, but from the profit flow from the alumina link to the electrolytic aluminum link. At present, the overall supply pressure of electrolytic aluminum is relatively limited. It is expected that the short-term aluminum will maintain a slightly strong trend of concussion, and the callback can be arranged in the position of 13500 to 13800 yuan / ton. Structurally, it pays attention to the positive set of 09-12 contract to buy short and long-distance contract; Internal and external arbitrage positions are not recommended for new opening, and do not have strong logical support for the time being.
