The Section 232 tariffs were President Trump’s first move in the trade war. Since then, President Trump imposed tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods. The US-China trade war and the general slowdown in China’s aluminum demand have taken a toll on aluminum prices, which hurt aluminum producers’ earnings.
As we noted in the previous part, US-based aluminum producers including Alcoa (AA) and Century Aluminum (CENX) have seen a selling spree this year despite President Trump’s Section 232 tariffs. Aluminum prices have also come under pressure. In this part, we’ll see what has been impacting aluminum prices.
Earlier this year, President Trump imposed a 10% tariff on aluminum imports and a 25% tariff on steel imports. The tariffs were imposed under the little-used Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962. The Department of Commerce’s investigation found that steel and aluminum imports are a threat to US national security.

Since the start of this year, there has been a severe fall in the prices of almost all commodities (COMT) like copper, nickel, lead, cobalt, and gold (GLD). Factors such as the stronger US dollar (UUP), higher interest rates, weakness in emerging markets, and increasing trade tensions have been the major reasons for the slump in commodities. The trade war has started taking its toll on China (FXI), which is a negative for commodities, as China is the mainstay for many commodity producers.
The big post-election rally on Wednesday has petered out a bit as the week draws to a close. We know the nation is politically divided, and now the market is showing us its split personality as well. We warned investors on Wednesday that this could happen since the election was unlikely to immediately solve the issues of rates, tariffs, President’s Trump’s legal woes, or the slowdown in earnings growth next year. As a result, the major indices are trying to give back their Wednesday gains. ...
A first glance at aluminium stocks suggest an abundance of the metal, but analysts say a closer look at how long those stocks would last shows the market is tight and prices are too low. Aluminium is a metal key for the transport and packaging industries but at current prices about 40 percent of the world's aluminium production is losing money, analysts say. Benchmark aluminium on the London Metal Exchange at around $2,000 a tonne has fallen more than 10 percent since hitting a 3-1/2-month high at $2,267 in early October.
Broader equity markets have whipsawed this year. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) fell sharply last month. SPY has risen 3.8% YTD (year-to-date) based on the closing prices on November 5.

Mining companies must forge new ties with partners from customers to governments as they pursue innovation and compete for talent with technology giants, Rio Tinto's chief executive said in a speech to be delivered on Tuesday. The mining industry has recovered from the deep commodity crash of 2015-16, but faces headwinds from U.S.-China trade tensions, which have dented the copper price, and is struggling to win investor trust. In a copy of a speech to be delivered at a conference in Melbourne on Tuesday, CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques said pushing the industry forward calls for "a brand new spirit of partnership".
Aluminum prices topped the $2,500 per metric ton level in April amid Rusal sanctions. Alumina prices have been more volatile than aluminum prices (XME). The global alumina markets have been rocked by a series of supply disruptions this year, especially at Norsk Hydro’s (NHYDY) Alunorte refinery.
Earlier this month, the IMF lowered its global growth forecast for 2018 and 2019 from 3.9% to 3.7%. At the beginning of the year, the IMF had raised its 2018 global economic growth forecast to 3.9% from 3.8%, calling it “the broadest synchronized global growth upsurge since 2010.” Six months down the line, while it maintained the growth forecast, it dropped the term “synchronized.” Now, even the growth forecast has been trimmed due to the trade war scare. Lower global growth isn’t encouraging for markets (QQQ).
Earlier this year, Goldman Sachs said US stock buyback authorizations could top $1 trillion this year, which would be the highest absolute level of buybacks since 2007.

Other metals and mining companies including Vale (VALE) and BHP Billiton (BHP) have also announced share buybacks this year.
