Aluminium prices edged up by Rs 1.10 to Rs 107.20 per kg in futures trade today as participants enlarged their positions, supported by a strong spot demand in the physical market.
In futures trading at the Multi Commodity Exchange, aluminium for delivery this month inched up by Rs 1.10 or 1.04% to Rs 107.20 per kg in a business turnover of 316 lots.

Traders said strength in the base metals pack at the London Metal Exchange (LME), spurred by an improving trade outlook in China and monetary stimulus by the European Central Bank and increased domestic demand from consuming industries at the spot markets, helped aluminium futures to trade higher.
