Alcoa's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Alcoa is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $28.50 short call and a strike $33.50 long call offers a potential 25% return on risk over the next 19 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $28.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.00 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.00 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $33.50 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Alcoa is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Alcoa is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 58.09 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Japanese aluminium buyers agree to Q2 premium increase, first time since Q3 2018
Mon, 25 Mar 2019 10:32:31 +0000
Japanese aluminium buyers agreed to purchase supplies for April to June at premiums that are as much as 27 percent higher than the previous quarter as spot premiums have climbed, five sources directly involved in the pricing talks said. The new premium (PREM-ALUM-JP) was set at $105 per tonne, up from the the $83 to $85 per tonne premiums in the January to March quarter, the sources said. Japan is Asia's biggest importer of aluminium and the premiums for primary metal shipments it agrees to pay each quarter over the London Metal Exchange (LME) cash price set the benchmark for the region.
