Report summary

Nickel prices remained above US$10,000/t through October, partly through improved demand fundamentals but largely because the market is awaiting confirmation that more mines will close in the Philippines. Meanwhile, Indonesian NPI continues to ramp up. Demand for nickel remains strong in China due to increased stainless output. This is being driven by substantial expansion and greater export demand but questions remain on sustainability.
