The past month has seen caution return to the commodity markets. Equity markets edged lower and indicators of market fear, such as the VIX Index, rose. Sharp falls in oil and thermal coal prices helped to drag down the broader complex, which more than offset the positive impact of a weaker US$. Aluminium was a notable exception and rallied on the back of potentially large supply cuts in China due to environmental problems. We look for oil prices to remain depressed for now, while iron ore prices are likely to drop.
