Strong fundamentals combined with the unwinding of a crowded hedge fund trade could send aluminum far higher. Cutbacks in Chinese production are being met with increasing demand, a recipe for rapid draws on stockpiles and popping prices. AA -1.4%. ETFs: JJU, ALUM.

    Aluminum is more based on the cost of production (read electricity) along with production capacity, unlike copper which is based on the scarcity and difficulty obtaining and/or the mining of raw materials.

     

    Until employment recovers in full swing, I will remain skeptical.

     

    That said, in this market, I guess anything can be bid up speculatively without sound fundamentals.
