Hedge funds in a wait and see position

News - 17 Nov 14

At the moment, nickel on the London Metal Exchange (LME) is really testing market participants and market analysts. Everything may have looked fine at the start of the year, with fundamentals and price development following a communal logic, but, even though fundamentally nothing has really changed, the present price level has become most disturbing. It is quite true that the reach of nickel ore stocks, stored in China, has risen, contrary to what had been thought at the beginning of the year.

Worsening geopolitical and other crises, as well as the uncertain outlook for the future development of the global economy, have caused growth expectations to fall. The sanctions on Russia resulting from the conflicts in the Ukraine, the attacks on the Gaza Strip, and last but not least, the renewed military intervention of the USA in Iraq, all weigh heavily on the spirits of investors and business.
