Wrecked GDP could not stop metals from shinning

Not only equities and gold, but industrial commodities have also been on a tear this year, despite the economic shock caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The LME Metal index, a gauge for performance of non-ferrous metals, posted its fifth straight monthly advance in August — its longest winning streak since 2009. The index is currently up more than 30 per cent from its 2020 lows in March at the height of the Covid-19-triggered sell-off. Copper, zinc, lead, nickel, tin, and aluminium — all have gained between 16 per cent and 47 per cent since the end of March. The sharp rally has boosted the prospects of commodity stocks.

Analysts say easy liquidity and China demand are driving metal prices up.

The weakness in the dollar has also supported prices. The accommodative stance adopted by the US Fed indicates a low interest environment for a prolonged period which has kept the greenback under pressure, making industrial metals cheaper for other currency holders.
