Report summary

Nickel prices rise on more supply disruptions and falling full plate stocks, although that decline was offset by the continued increase in briquette inventory. Lingering discussion of nickel demand from batteries is also bolstering market optimism. We have revised our forecast prices up for the next two quarters as a result.
