  Daily Nickel/Stainless Steel Briefing (8:00 AM CST is 1PM in London)
  • Three month nickel closed Monday's trading session at $4.75/lb . Indicators at 5:45 am CST today show 3 month nickel trading around $.10/lb lower. Stockpiles of nickel stored in LME approved warehouses rose only slightly on Monday and still stand just over the 373,600 tonne level. The US Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan will hold meetings this week, and traders are suddenly a little more risk wary than they have been recently. No one really expects the Fed to raise rates, as a move in either direction could damage the stock market. Nothing has changed in the Philippines, so the main fundamental reason nickel prices have risen, remains in place.
  • Average price of cash nickel so far this month - $4.63/lb
  • Average price of LME traded nickel in 2014 - $7.65/lb / 2013 - $6.80/lb / avg 2012 - $7.95/lb /
