SHANGHAI, Oct 22 (SMM) – The intraweek SHFE aluminium pulled back by 3,300 yuan/mt, the greatest fall in almost 10 years for triple bearish factors. First of all, the support from the cost side is estimated to fall as the near-term coal prices are unlikely to rebound and the cyclical products prices retreated amid panic one after another. While the social aluminium ingot inventory in China has rose greatly. Lastly, the spot discounts have triggered market concerns over the consumption prospect.
