Report summary

Very little in the market changed during Q3 and yet nickel prices increased. Chinese stainless steel production rates picked up quite strongly from July whereas other announcements signalled a risk to some sources of supply. China's stainless market nickel pig iron and the ups and downs of nickel ore supply in Indonesia and the Philippines will likely continue to influence prices in the near term. In contrast the longer term outlook is one of mounting deficits falling stocks and higher prices with the risk to prices going higher than currently forecast stemming from future nickel demand from electric vehicle batteries.
