Summary: On the macro front, US inflation pressure decreased, and the US Fed's rate cut expectations strengthened. On the fundamentals, domestic aluminum production is increasing, with some capacity still awaiting resumption. Downstream aluminum processing and end-user demand have entered the off-season, with demand in some sectors being impacted, leading to a continuous decline in the operating rate of the aluminum processing industry and inventory growth in social stocks. The aluminum market currently lacks driving factors, and aluminum prices are expected to fluctuate in the short term. However, attention should be paid to changes in macro sentiment that may cause aluminum price fluctuations.
