    Shanghai Metals Market found that 6063 aluminium billet stocks, across five major consumption areas in China, have recorded a decline by 7,600 tonnes to 129,200 tonnes on Thursday, October 17, followed by two consecutive rises after the Chinese National Day holiday. Recovering consumption is one of the reasons for this decline, according to SMM.

    Since the Chinese market resumed after the National Day holiday, aluminium billet inventories were found increased by 35,400 tonnes and then 1,600 tonnes to come in at 136,800 tonnes, as of last Thursday, October 10.

In other cities like Foshan, Guangdong; and Changzhou, Jiangsu, the inventories have increased by 800 tonnes to 73,200 tonnes and by 1,300 tonnes to 15,700 tonnes.
