Iron ore and Copper market outlook - 12 May 2021, 15:30 - 16:30 (SGT)


Copper price trend depends largely on demand-supply forces, new energy sources and carbon neutralisation. Moreover, macro forces in place include the launch of COVID-19 vaccination and clean energy plan of the Biden administration. What then is the outlook for copper prices? The steel industry in China accounts for 15% of domestic and 60% of the world’s carbon emission. In the short term, the solution to reduction of carbon emission is to reduce steel production. Nonetheless, this would widen the gap between steel demand and supply and narrow down raw materials. How will all these factors affect iron ore prices?

(Note: This webinar will be delivered in Chinese.)
