Post  Admin on Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:45 pm

Aluminium settled up 0.99% at 121.85 despite of encouraging US employment and GDP data fuelled apprehension that the US Federal Reserve may bring QE3 to an end. As a result, the US dollar index climbed to near 82, dragging base metals prices down. Overall Aluminum prices are likely to remain weak as a large structural surplus more than makes up for strong demand. The firm estimates global aluminum demand growth in 2013 at 6%, in line with the long-term trend. But unless output falls, prices will remain subdued.

Post  Admin on Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:50 pm

Zinc settled up 0.78% at 128.90 recovered in the late session while pressure seen after Germany's economic data released overnight was depressing, and since situations in Syria were still in chaos, the euro against the US dollar plummeted by 0.73%. US positive GDP and initial jobless claims data enhanced market speculations that the Fed will scale back QE3 soon, lending support to the US dollar index, rebounding to 82, gaining back near-four-week losses, and weighing down zinc prices. Market fears about situations in Syria alleviate, with non-US dollar currencies falling, which supported the US dollar index to rebound, breaking through the 20-day moving average, dipping to a new low of $1,924/mt since mid-August. US positive initial jobless claims strengthened expectations that US non-farm employment data to be released next week will improve, which raised expectations of an end to QE3.

Post  Admin on Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:52 pm

Copper settled up 0.57% at 486.90 recovered from the day's low in the late session after strength in the U.S. dollar and an economic report that reinforced ideas of many that the Federal Reserve may still taper quantitative easing next month. Prices lost further ground yesterday as the market was hit by fears over the likelihood of the so-called tapering of the Fed in their next September meeting, the sentiment sent the USD higher and as a result put pressure on metals prices. Although it was not the first time this week that we got upbeat numbers, yesterday's GDP data was significantly higher than expected and of higher importance as far as the Fed is concerned. The market's focus turned to the QE3 issue again. US and its allies took a mixed attitude whether to take military attack on Syria. Only France expressed its supports, while UK is attempting to resolve political hinders, and Germany said the issue should be resolved by the United Nations Security Council. US Congress required that Obama should not attack Syria without authorization from the Congress,
