"SMM Aluminum Industry chain Weekly report", the weekly report SMM will select one of the hot topics, prices, market or major changes in the industry chain information published for your reference.

The following is an excerpt from the weekly report of the SMM aluminum industry chain:

The price of alumina was 2121 yuan / ton on April 10, falling 84 yuan / ton during the week. During the week, the quotations of traders in southwest and northern regions continued to decline, but there were very few inquiries from electrolytic aluminum plants, and the latest transactions and quotations in Shanxi were as low as 2050-2100 yuan per ton.

The operating capacity of domestic alumina this week is basically the same as that of the previous week. Within the week, there was little quotation in the alumina plant, and the willingness of the holder traders to dump the goods was strong, but the buyer inquired less, and only a small number of traders purchased in small batches, so the market transaction and quotation center of gravity moved further down, approaching the price of imported alumina. Since April, the alumina import window has opened again, and the import profit level is around 100% 120 yuan / ton. With the continuous decline of alumina prices, the operating capacity of alumina in Shanxi, Henan and Chongqing has basically entered the stage of comprehensive loss of cash flow. It is expected that there will be a high probability of production reduction in the near future. We need to continue to pay attention to the impact of narrowing on the supply side on the balance of supply and demand, or will help alumina prices to the bottom.
