Energy Commodities Price Outlook
Energy prices decline further in December
Energy prices fell 7.8% in December (November: minus 5.2% mom), marking the sixth consecutive month of decline.
Prices for every energy commodity in our report fell in December, with the exception of thermal coal. Investors remained bearish as the global economy flagged under the weight of elevated inflation and rising interest rates. This led to a decline in prices for oil and its derivatives. For natural gas, high inventory levels and warm weather ensured that prices fell. Meanwhile, the coking coal and thermal coal supply outlooks were boosted by drier weather in Australia. However, although coking coal prices fell, thermal coal prices rose. This was due to strong thermal coal demand from Europe and the prospect of higher demand ahead from China following the relaxation of its zero-Covid policy.
