Report summary

The upward momentum in nickel prices that was precipitated in July by a pick up in China's nickel and stainless markets was spurred on in August by the announced closure of Ravensthorpe and deferral of underground development at Voisey's Bay. Further interruptions to supply will amplify the growing market perception of material tightness at the front end of an electric vehicle powered demand boom.
