THE COST OF ALUMINUM JUMPED TO THE HIGHEST SINCE JUNE 2018
The reduction of concerns about the prospects for demand for aluminum has led to a significant rise in the price of this metal. According to the results of trading on Tuesday on the London stock Exchange, a ton of aluminum rose in price by 1.37% to $2,293. At the same time, during the auction, the price of the metal rose to the level of $2304 per ton. A higher cost per ton of aluminum was recorded in June 2018.
The increase in the price of the metal was supported by statistics published in China. They are evidence of the successful recovery of the Chinese economy. At the end of last month, the volume of China's exports increased by 30.6% compared to the same month of the previous year. The volume of imports increased by 38.1% year-on-year. The growth of economic activity in the country allows us to count on an increase in demand for aluminum. China is the world's largest consumer of industrial metals. At the end of this week, statistics on Chinese industrial production will be released.
