Dear users,

Hello!

Due to the large number of aluminum ingot traders and downstream processing plants in Henan market, and convenient railway transportation, the local spot trading of aluminum ingots has become more and more active in recent years, which has been widely concerned by the market. In order to meet users' demand for spot aluminum ingot trading and settlement in Henan, SMM plans to release "SMM A00 Aluminum (Central Plains)" price and "Zhongyuan Sheng discount" for market reference. The specific price methodology is as follows.

I. SMM A00 Aluminum (Central Plains) pricing principles

1.1 based on spot transaction price The SMM A00 Aluminum (Central Plains) price is based on the information of electrolytic aluminum smelters, traders and downstream enterprises collected before 10:15 on each trading day, and the price evaluation is mainly based on the actual transactions concluded in Gongyi, Zhengzhou and Luoyang, Henan Province on that day, and with reference to quotation enquiries, buying and selling intentions and cognitive price negotiations. The adoption of the standard comes from relatively fixed market participants, including smelters, traders, processing enterprises and downstream users. In judging the data collected, SMM will take into account the circumstances of each transaction, including the relationship between the two parties, the specifications and quality of the products, as well as the mode of shipment and terms of payment, in order to determine the price range of the spot price of Zhongyuan Aluminum. The prices arising from the selling, debt repayment, or any other non-repeatable transactions of affiliated enterprise transactions under financial or legal pressure will be excluded.

1.2 Standard acquisition unit SMM price collectors collect trading data from a list of active traders in a relatively stable spot market. SMM will continuously evaluate the operation of each company and the accuracy of the information provided in the past to determine whether a company is excluded or added to the pricing unit. The criteria for selecting standard units by SMM are as follows: 1) smelting enterprises: A00 aluminum annual production capacity of more than 100000 tons, a standardized sales model, smooth sales channels, relatively stable sales quantity, a certain degree of influence and popularity, legal and honest management, good market reputation. 2) Trading enterprises: engaged in spot trade of A00 aluminum ingots for more than two years, average daily purchase and sales volume of more than 500 tons, monthly trade volume of more than 10,000 tons, standardized purchase and sales model, smooth purchase and sales channels, relatively stable purchase and sales quantity, have a certain degree of influence and popularity, legal and honest management, good market reputation. 3) downstream enterprises: engaged in aluminum processing industry for more than two years, the average daily aluminum consumption is more than 500tons, aluminum processing capacity is more than 100000 tons / year. There is a standardized purchase and sales model, smooth purchase and sales channels, relatively stable purchase and sales quantity, a certain degree of influence and popularity, legal and honest management, good market reputation. Each bidding unit can objectively and truthfully feedback the actual situation of the purchase and sales of A00 aluminum ingots, and can maintain good communication with SMM price analysts in this regard. Bid adoption units (including but not limited to): Enterprise type enterprise name Smelter Chinalco International Trading Co., Ltd. Smelter Henan Shenhuo International Trade Co., Ltd.
