Domestic social inventories continue to show a sharp decline, far exceeding expectations. The tight market supply flow has made aluminum prices slightly stronger. This month, aluminum prices have moved upwards, and Shanghai Aluminum’s main monthly increase has been 4.74%. Short-term policies and destocking are still positive. Aluminum prices have some support, but the fundamentals are not good. Under the accumulation of negative factors, it is necessary to be alert to the risk of aluminum prices surging down later; aluminum prices are expected to fluctuate within a narrow range in June, or the increase or slowdown, Lun Aluminum 1470-1590; Shanghai The main aluminum is 13-1.35 million; East China spot aluminum is 131-1.36 million; buy on demand.

In May, the price picked up significantly, and the shipment sentiment of the holders improved significantly. The market supply of goods gradually increased, especially the supply of aluminum alloy materials, aluminum shavings, raw aluminum, etc., which increased significantly compared with April. However, relative to the downstream demand, the supply remained significant. On the tight side, the holders have a strong willingness to set prices, there are few sources of low-price goods in the market, and scrap aluminum has always been in a market that is easy to rise and fall. For downstream manufacturers, due to insufficient raw material inventory, manufacturers have a high enthusiasm for receiving goods, but the cost of raw materials is high. However, the prices of recycled aluminum alloys have not risen, and corporate profits have narrowed seriously. The overall transaction picked up in May.
