Although the stock is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. Alcoa Inc managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 50.70 today for the first time since April 5th.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 49.54 where further sell stops might get activated.
