Report summary

Nickel prices headed down towards US$9 000/t in April as it was confirmed that two Indonesian companies would be awarded licences to export nickel ore. These will be the first of many. Other hot topics at this year's first INSG meeting included the prospect that Filipino ore exports in 2017 would exceed those of 2016 and weaker Q2 stainless demand in China due to falling prices and high stocks. Market sentiment remains bearish.
