Chart of the day - ALUMINIUM (07.09.2021)

07:44 7 September 2021

Aluminium is trading at the highest level since 2011 following a military coup in Guinea. Military seized control over the country in West Africa that is one of the key bauxite miners in the world. Following heavy processing, bauxite becomes aluminium, a material used in production of cars or cans for drinks. Almost all of bauxites mined in Guinea are sent to China and Guinea accounts for more than half of all bauxite reaching China. 

Weekend's coup has greatly boosted uncertainty for aluminium traders. On one hand, the volatile situation in the country at the moment threatens supply of a key material used in production of aluminium. On the other hand, military leaders vow that they want mining production to continue and said they will honor all existing mining agreements. Price gains on the aluminium market have been limited so far and look more as a continuation of the ongoing uptrend rather than a reaction to potentially major disruption in supply.
