Gold is on a stage wherein it is performing better compared to other financial instruments. For base metals, they are also performing better than the average numbers. The good performance of gold is due to various factors including the supply from the flat mine, ETP buying increase as well as the sales from the central bank in Russia.

The prices of Zinc are expected to be on a high because the supply is still trailing behind the level of demand.

The demand for copper is expected to be steady as it grows along with the demand. It is predicted that it is almost reaching a point wherein the demand will be higher than the supply.

In the case of nickel, the limited supply is the main reason why nickel is considered such a great asset nowadays especially for those who have a long term goal.
