Looks like LME nickel prices are officially ridin’ the bull.
And Glencore Xstrata, among others, wants in on the rodeo.
The commodities mining and trading conglomerate’s arm in the Dominican Republic, Falcondo, is looking to reopen a nickel mine to take advantage of the boom cycle, as we reported yesterday, while metal buying organizations should be thinking about how to mitigate their nickel price risk.
So it’s no surprise that the main attraction of MetalMiner’s June 2014 MMI® Report is the Stainless MMI®, which is riding the nickel price explosion to make it the Biggest Mover of the Month. But that’s only one – a few other MMI indexes rose, a few fell and a few held steady.
