Best of MetalMiner — Economic Indicators

Many people don’t realize the level of analysis that goes into creating a MetalMiner price forecast. We try to emphasize the number and scope of exactly how many indicators we track to bring you the most up-to-date prices, and how intricately connected some of these seemingly unrelated variables can be. Economic indicators have a tremendous impact on metals prices. Metals traded one exchanges such as aluminum, copper, lead etc are particularly vulnerable to economic data.

Steel markets behave a little bit differently but are also subject to macro economic data such as housing starts, automotive sales, etc. We’ve aggregated a list of pieces we have covered on MetalMiner that highlight some of these economic indicators that impact metals prices:
