    When will Aluminum prices start to move up?  any guesses?  My Aluminum stock AA  sucks. Hope some Equuty  MGT will buy the company while the stock is  really really  cheap under $9

    Definitely a great question, Vipinkot47, and is anybody’s guess at the moment. Depending on who you listen to, until smelting capacity is cut drastically, coupled with a few other factors, we’re likely to see aluminum prices wallow for a good part of the quarter, if not the rest of the year.
