Produzent Freeport: Überangebot am Kupfermarkt in 2016

Copper cuts not enough to end surplus in 2016, Freeport exec says

Copper production cuts will not be enough to end a surplus this year and demand will not catch up with supply until 2017, Freeport McMoRan (FCX -1%) senior VP of marketing and sales Javier Targhetta tells Bloomberg.
~700K metric tons of supply will have been removed in the year through mid-2016, but new supplies from mines added this year mean a glut will not be completely wiped out in 2016, Targhetta says.
Copper prices have tumbled in the past three years amid slowing economic growth in China, the metal's biggest consumer; meanwhile, production outpaced demand by ~147K tons in 2015, the biggest surplus since 2009.
"Long term I am very positive," Targhetta says. "I don’t see any new projects."

Rohstoffe: Goldman Sachs bleibt auf der Bärenseite

Goldman Sachs bestätigt erneut die bärische Haltung für den Rohstoffmarkt:

Goldman rains on everyone's parade, says commodities rally won’t last

The recent surge in prices of gold, oil and other commodities has come prematurely, says the bank, arguing that lower prices are needed for markets to rebalance.

Iron Ore Jumps Most on Record as Market Goes 'Berserk'

March 7, 2016 — 6:45 AM ESTUpdated on March 7, 2016 — 9:13 AM EST

Iron ore soared the most ever after Chinese policy makers signaled their willingness to buttress economic growth, boosting the outlook for steel consumption in the top user and igniting speculation that some investors who’d bet against the market had been caught out.

Ore with 62 percent content delivered to Qingdao jumped 19 percent to $63.74 a dry metric ton, Metal Bulletin Ltd. data show. That’s the biggest gain in daily data going back to 2009 and the highest price since June. The surge was preceded in Asia by a rally in futures, with the most-active contract on Singapore Exchange Ltd. climbing 21 percent to $60 and prices on the Dalian Commodity Exchange rising by the daily limit..

Crunch Time for Commodities/Mining Equities as PDAC Approaches
§  The rally in metal prices and mining equities continued unabated this week. However, while precious metals, particularly gold (↑2.8%; $1,262 per ounce this week), have risen on the back on global economic uncertainty, especially in the U.S., the recent rise in base metals has taken many investors by surprise. Testing the $2.00 per pound level a little less than a month ago, the price of copper has since risen by 12%. This week alone, copper is up 6.4%, while nickel (↑9.1%), lead (↑6.78%) and zinc (↑5.24%) have each risen significantly this week, with nickel rocketing past the $4.00 per pound level to finish at $4.23 per pound. While the rise in gold can be attributed to investors seeking safe-haven assets following the fall in global stock markets worldwide, the rise in base metals is not so easily explained; concerns over global economic growth, particularly in China, would imply significant downward pressure on base and industrial metal prices, certainly copper, or Dr. Copper as it is affectionately known (at least in a bull market) has historically been viewed as the bellwether for global growth. Some view this counterintuitive move as a reflection of the opaque nature of China’s economy, and that perhaps growth in the Country is not as significant as first thought. Regardless of the reasons, however, many view the timing of the PDAC, and the performance of metals and mining equities syn- and post- the world’s largest mining conference as a reliable indicator for what is in store for the summer. This view is borne from the performance of metals and equities during the same period since 2011, with initial positive signs giving way to a subsequent downturn in metal/equity prices at and around the PDAC. Silver (↑5%), platinum (↑6.6%) and palladium (↑13%) also finished up, closing at $15.55, $979 and $556 per ounce respectively. Meanwhile, WTI crude prices also rose during the week, finishing at $36.23 per barrel, while the UxC Broker Average Price (BAP) of uranium fell below $32.00 per pound, finishing at $31.38 per pound on Friday.
