The trade conflict between the world’s top two economies escalated, with the United States hiking tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods after President Donald Trump said Beijing “broke the deal” by reneging on earlier commitments made during months of negotiations.

Vehicles sales in China, the world’s top auto market, fell 14.6% in April annually, marking the 10th consecutive month of decline against a backdrop of slowing economic growth and crippling trade war with the United States.

Russian aluminum giant United Company Rusal said its first-quarter net profit fell about 44%, hit by the lingering effects of U.S. sanctions and weaker aluminum prices. Washington had imposed sanctions on Rusal, the world’s largest aluminum producer outside China, in April 2018, but lifted them in late-January this year after negotiations and organizational changes in the company.

Primary aluminium stocks in China extended their declines over the week, as demand continued to improve and as limited cargoes arrived. Data showed that social inventories of primary aluminium across eight consumption areas in China, including SHFE warrants, dropped 36,000 mt to stand at 1.373 million mt.
