"Commodities - Mother of all pork cycles"

News - 15 Dec 14

At the moment, the wind seems to have dropped out of the sails a little in the nickel market. After the upward movement to USD 17,200.00/mt from the low at the end of October of USD 14,700.00/mt, the market has been in a slightly correctional phase leading to a nickel price of around the USD 16,200.00/mt region. Nickel is presently trading again above the USD 16,700.00/mt on the London Metal Exchange (LME).

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.

Bolt of thunder from the Philippines

News - 15 Sep 14

Nickel prices on the London Metal Exchange (LME) consolidated in a sideways movement during large parts of July, finding good support in the market above USD 18,500.00/mt. The market had recently lost some of its momentum and this was not just because of a summer lull. It was, indeed, confirmed that Indonesia would maintain its ore export ban, but it would now appear that the supply deficit, as predicted by leading analysts, will not materialise until sometime in 2015.
