Resource Market Weekly Recap | Resource Investing News
Aluminum is currently trading around $1,938 a tonne on the LME, having slumped 20 percent during the past two months after the European debt crisis and fears over falling Chinese demand scared away risk adverse investors.  On June 7, prices closed at $1,867.50 a tonne, the metal’s lowest price in eight months. After aluminum’s recent price retreat, many smelters are unprofitable- a reality that may lead to forced shutdowns.

The Behind the Numbers report includes findings of the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Foxconn Halts Hiring, Probably Not Completely Pulling Out of China [REPORT]

Do daddy's girls own a negotiation power that I do not? | Ask ...
