  Daily Nickel/Stainless Steel Briefing (8:00 AM CST is 1PM in London)
  • Three month nickel closed Friday's trading session at $4.09/lb . Indicators at 6:00 am CST today show 3 month nickel trading around $.04/lb higher. Stockpiles of nickel stored in LME approved warehouses fell on both Thursday and Friday and start the week just under the 381,800 tonne level. Markets were taken completely by surprise on Friday, when Britain voted to separate from the EU. The Euro fell and continues to trade lower today. Equity markets fell sharply lower on Friday and are faring little better today. But base metals have shown very little reaction in comparison. Nickel fell 2% on Friday, but has recovered much of that today. The political situation in the Philippines is offering moral support for nickel, but we expect a volatile week ahead as traders try to determine the long term effects of Brexit.
  • Average price of cash nickel so far this month - $4.02/lb
  • Average price of LME traded nickel in 2014 - $7.65/lb / 2013 - $6.80/lb / avg 2012 - $7.95/lb /
