Aluminium crosses $3,000 a ton mark after 13 years


The price of aluminium exceeded $3,000 a tonne on Monday for the first time since July 22, 2008.
The price for a tonne of aluminium to be shipped in three months has grown by 2.24% to $3,035.50 on the London Metal Exchange, as of Monday.

In mid-September, the price of the metal touched $3,000 a tonne, after China introduced restrictions on aluminium output.

Aluminium prices have been growing for nine months in a row. This year, a fall was registered only in January. The price soared most by 9.64% in February, with the smallest increase of 1.4% recorded in July. In total, the aluminium price has risen 1.5 times since the beginning of the year.——TLTP
