Aluminum Hovers Near 13-Year High

Aluminium prices experience uptrend in the global economy

Aluminum Hovers Near 13-Year High


As traders assessed the impact of reducing geopolitical tensions over e, aluminum hovered near its highest level since 2008.


n President Vladimir Putin expressed hope for a diplomatic resolution to tensions with the United States and its allies. He announced a partial troop retreat near the ian border. The announcement reawakened risk appetite throughout the market. Moreover, it allayed fears of n supply disruptions in the case of military action or sanctions.


With a 14 percent gain this year, aluminum has improved base metals. Rising fuel prices and environmental restrictions clog supply in Europe and China. This week, the spot premium on the London Metal Exchange reached its highest level since 2018. This indicated an absence of urgent demand.


Because of pandemic-related lockdowns and limits during the Beijing Winter Olympics, prices in China, the world’s largest producer and consumer of aluminum, are sustained by constrained supply.


Separately, China’s inflation dropped in January, allowing the central bank to loosen policy ahead of a critical political leadership gathering later this year. Metals expect to benefit from additional monetary policy loosening.


On the LME, aluminum for three-month delivery bounced between gains and losses before settling at $3,208 a ton. Last week, the metal hit $3,333 in intraday trade, the highest price since a peak of $3,380.15 in 2008.


-e Tensions Stay High


On Wednesday, oil prices recovered some of their losses as investors analyzed conflicting claims about the possible evacuation of some n troops from e amid tight global supply and resurgent fuel demand.


Around 1000 GMT, Brent traded at $93.86 per barrel, up 62 cents, or 0.6 percent, after falling 3.3 percent overnight after  announced a partial troop pullback near e.


After ending Tuesday’s session down 3.6 percent, U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil traded at $92.64 a barrel, up 62 cents, or 0.6 percent.


Brent and WTI touched new highs on Monday, reaching $96.78 and $95.82, respectively, for the first time since September 2014. According to a Reuters poll, oil and distillate stockpiles in the United States may have declined by 1.5 million to 1.6 million barrels last week.


According to the American Petroleum Institute data, crude, gasoline, and distillate stockpiles all fell last week.
