On the macro level, the Fed’s expected interest rate hike fell, expectations were released, pessimism improved, and market risk appetite returned. However, the sustainability needs to be tested. After all, the expectation of interest rate hike in September still exists.

On the supply and demand side, the output continues to rise, and there is a certain pressure on the supply side. The positive news about real estate on Thursday stimulated the sharp rise in prices. On the demand side, the measures to stabilize real estate are conducive to the improvement of aluminum consumption in the real estate sector, but whether the relevant benefits can be realized and the degree of realization remains to be seen. In the absence of substantial improvement in real estate consumption, the recent cyclical destocking began to slow down. On the 28th, the domestic social inventory was 672000 tons, and the inventory accumulated slightly during the week. The overall inventory is still at a relatively low level. The London Metal Exchange (LME) aluminum inventory decreased by 4375 tons, but the pattern of strong supply and weak demand is still in place. It is comprehensively expected that the rebound of aluminum prices is limited.
