Global iron ore long-term outlook Q1 2013 interim

Global iron ore long-term outlook Q1 2013 interim

Report summary

Iron ore has staged a dramatic recovery since the price collapse of August/September 2012 and we believe prices will remain well supported through the first half of 2013. However, as supply growth accelerates we anticipate downward pressure on prices from H2-13 which will gather momentum through 2014/15. Our annual average price forecast for 2013, is $128/t CFR China, basis 62% Fe, which is virtually unchanged from the October Long Term Outlook.
