Report summary

Nickel prices continue to trend down in 2015 and our forecasts have been cut by nearly US$1/lb since the prior LTO. There are a few signals that prices could improve in H2/15 and then mounting deficits should support a more sustainable rally from 2016. Even with some Indonesian NPI a structural shortage in nickel warrants a long term price of US$12/lb in order to encourage investment in new projects that will enable supply to keep pace with forecast demand.
