Stocks showed a slower throughput causing variations in regional markets. South China saw stagnancy in cargo arrivals, but outflows increased. Smelters sent more shipments to East China to take advantage of higher prices. Spot premiums slowed down transactions and led to a gradual decline in local stocks.

Compared with last Monday, May 22, the aluminium social inventories witnessed a downward leap of 37,000 tonnes, but when matched with the same period one year ago, it fell by 273,000 tonnes.
