Financial crisis negatively influences many countries that reduce consumption of production from nonferrous metals. It together with strengthening of the rate of American dollar concerning euro forces exchange players to get rid of stocks of nonferrous metals to receive cash. Therefore, in the market of metals sales prevail, which leads to falling of prices.
