SHANGHAI, Apr 27 (SMM) - On April 25, aluminium prices fell sharply by 850 yuan/mt to 20,950 yuan/mt, down 3.9% The falling prices suppressed shipment from traders.

On April 27, aluminium prices dropped by 10 yuan/mt to 20,730 yuan/mt, while aluminium scrap prices remained unchanged. At present, the pressure of transportation in most areas where aluminium scrap transactions are concentrated has eased (except Jiangsu, Liaoning, Tianjin and other places). However, due to the poor demand for aluminium scrap and the relatively long settlement period of transactions, the demand for scrap will remain weak in the near future.
