On the demand side, due to the impact of the epidemic, downstream demand was weak, holidays were brought forward, and the amount of ingot casting in aluminum plants increased.
Logic and strategy advice: The peak of the epidemic in the core cities has passed, entering the recovery period, and the market risk appetite has picked up; due to the epidemic, downstream demand has entered the holiday ahead of schedule, the demand is poor, the inventory has unexpectedly increased, the spot market is sluggish, and the discount continues. It is expected that in the short term Aluminum prices fluctuated weakly.
