    Most US business' are closed Friday for Independence Day. We started the holiday a day earlier and our next full daily update will be Monday July 6th.

  Daily Nickel/Stainless Steel Briefing (8:00 AM CST is 1PM in London)

  • Three month nickel closed Wednesday's trading session at $5.44/lb . Indicators at 6:30 am CST today show 3 month nickel trading around $.08/lb higher, with other London traded base metals trading mostly higher as well. Stockpiles of nickel stored in LME approved warehouses rose slightly on Wednesday and now total just over the 457,300 tonne level. The $12,000 tonne level was giving the market some resistance the last few days, but seems to be acting as support today. If Greece wasn't what everyone was taking about, the huge correction in th Chinese stock market would be the buzz. Happy Independence Day America and a super and safe weekend to all.

  • Average price of LME traded nickel in 2014 - $7.65/lb / 2013 - $6.80/lb / avg 2012 - $7.95/lb /

Wednesday, July 1

  Daily Nickel/Stainless Steel Briefing (8:00 AM CST is 1PM in London)
  • Three month nickel closed Tuesday's trading session at $5.46/lb . Indicators at 6:30 am CST today show 3 month nickel trading around $.02/lb higher, with other London trade base metals trading higher as well, albeit quietly. Stockpiles of nickel stored in LME approved warehouses rose on Tuesday and now total just over the 457,100 tonne level. After momentarily dipping below $4.90/lb, cash nickel bounced sharply yesterday, with plenty of room left to recovery the earlier weeks steep loss. Some of the initial panic about Greece defaulting has diminished, with traders more confident something will be worked out to keep Greece in the Euro, and if not, the world may not fall apart after all.
