In the short term, we believe that excessive short-term growth is difficult to sustain, on the contrary, it is easy to trigger a correction. Aluminum prices have fallen in the past few days, we think this is not a bad thing, a timely fall can release the risk of prices rising too fast. Demand this year is much lower than last year, and aluminum prices may face the risk of a continued correction in the short term.
