Commodity Supercycle Gathers Momentum – What’s Next For PricesCommodity prices are booming across the board with everything from the metals, energy to agriculture markets, trading near multi-year highs.
Last week, Palladium, Iron Ore and Lumber prices took centre-stage skyrocketing to all-time record highs. Meanwhile Copper and Aluminium prices hit 10-year highs. Both metals have now doubled from the lows seen a year ago.
There are plenty of fundamental factors why commodities are on the move, but the key driver is a vaccine-led recovery fuelled by massive amounts of global stimulus into Green Energy and Infrastructure projects. This is against a backdrop of tightening supply across many high-in-demand commodities, which firmly suggests that a new supercycle is now underway.
