    Copper hits six-year low on gloomy China outlook

    Business Spectator
    Copper prices have tumbled to a six-year low as the latest slide in China's stock markets reinforce gloomy prospects for demand in the world's top consumer of the metal. Benchmark copper on the London Metal Exchange earlier fell nearly 2% to $5,164 a tonne. The metal ended at $5,188, down from $5,260 on Friday. Chinese shares sank more than 8% on Monday. Analysts believe copper prices will stay depressed until we see some improvement in China. Traders forecast weaker prices for base metals in general, but expect some support from a lower US dollar, which makes dollar-denominated commodities cheaper for holders of other currencies.

    China's sharemarket rout stings global equities

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    The biggest rout in Chinese shares in eight years has stoked concerns over slowing growth in the world's No. 2 economy, knocking down global equities and commodity prices. Wall Street was down on worries over China's slowing growth, crystallised by a stunning 8.5% fall in shares in Shanghai that also rattled equity markets in Europe and Asia. China's securities regulator quickly said Beijing would continue to buy shares to stabilise the market. Both copper and the broader Thomson Reuters CRB commodities index hit their lowest levels in six years. Oil was near four-month lows on worries that China may cut back consumption.

    Commodities in crisis
    Commodities are the worst performer of all asset classes in 2015 to date. This week has seen the Bloomberg Commodities Index drop to a 13-year low on Monday and no sector has escaped the malaise. Commodity countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada are suffering and the hope is that as the NZD, AUD and CAD depreciate so the countries' exports will become more competitive.

    Today's Trade: Miners in the mix as spot gold falls, metals weaker

    Today's Trade: Miners in the mix as spot gold falls, metals weaker
    Gold is losing its shine, and spot prices for the yellow metal have hit their lowest point since 2010. Several gold stocks will be in the spotlight as a result. Earning releases from S&P 500 companies could be a positive catalyst for stocks as worries about Greece and China recede. Meanwhile crude oil prices are depressed due to exess supply and the lifting of sanctions on Iran.

    The Macro Take: Risk-on for now, until Fed rate rise focus returns

    The Macro Take: Risk-on for now, until Fed rate rise focus returns
    The risk-on focus is back. But it's best to keep Greece on the radar, as the Greek fix could still unravel in three to six months' time. The Iran deal is a big plus for consumers, but a negative for oil producers. But it also creates opportunity. Meanwhile there are plenty of INIL (invest now, investigate later) opportunities this week.
