  Daily Nickel/Stainless Steel Briefing (8:00 AM CST is 1PM in London)
  • Dow Jones is reporting three month nickel closed Wednesday's trading session at $8.62/lb . Indicators at 6:40 am CST today show 3 month nickel trading around $.05/lb lower, with other London traded base metals trading mostly lower as well. Stockpiles of nickel stored in LME licensed warehouses rose to 13th all time record high for July, ending the month at 315,798 tonnes, a gain of 10,908 tonnes for the month. We could see the deficit that the analysts have been forecasting start to show itself over the next few months, although a blurb we found today claiming stainless steel production in China is up 21% for the first half of 2014, is a head scratcher. If true, it could make one wonder why we haven't already seen some signs of this forecasted deficit. Yesterday's sanctions against Russia were the first announced that were aimed at the Russian economy and not just powerful Russians. It caught Eramet's attention and they warned of the implications of any sanction against Norilsk.
  • Average price of cash nickel so far this month - $8.65/lb
  • Average price of LME traded nickel in 2013 - $6.80/lb / avg 2012 - $7.95/lb / avg 2011 - $10.36/lb / avg 2010 - $9.89/lb
