Base Metals Price Outlook
Energy prices bounce back strongly in September
Energy prices jumped 9.0% month-on-month in September, rebounding from August’s 3.1% decrease and marking the second-best outturn since March.
The energy price recovery in the final month of Q3 was broad-based. Prices for oil and its derivatives trended firmly upwards in September, mostly on the back of sustained supply tightness amid still-constrained offshore oil production in the U.S. and as OPEC+ continued to resist pressure to accelerate the unwinding of production cuts in the face of the global energy crunch. Similarly, supply shortages, depleted stockpiles and expectations of higher demand in the winter sent natural gas prices soaring in September, which in turn added further fuel to the oil price rally due to gas-to-oil switches in several power plants in Asia. Meanwhile, prices for both thermal and coking coal continued to soar on the back of rising global demand for power generation and as the supply backdrop remained constrained. Lastly, uranium prices continued to surge thanks to booming investor demand.
