Commodity markets in 2023 were like a rollercoaster, with serious market g-forces from all the gyration, leaving us not knowing which way was up.
Lithium soared until it didn’t, gold didn’t until it did, finishing the year in record territory, base metals wobbled when arguably they should have firmed, nickel in particular fell victim to non ESG friendly Asian production, iron ore rose and fell on shadowy news out of China, critical and strategic metals emerged as markets of growing importance, energy metals swung wildly based upon the climate policies of the political stripe of the day, with uranium emerging as a firming future pick and the death of coal and gas badly misjudged, all against a backdrop of major international skirmishes, international supply chains disrupted by the pandemic, and interest rates, fuel and power costs contributing to inflationary pressures.
No full stops in that diatribe intentionally to reflect the breathless nature of 2023.
So what does 2024 hold in store for us ?
