Nickel prices had cooled off in Q3 after seeing huge gains earlier in the year, but it has begun climbing back up.

Back in Q1, nickel rocketed to US$100,000 per metric ton (MT) — an all-time high and a rise of 250 percent over the course of two days, prompting the London Metal Exchange (LME) to suspend trading of the metal.

“We are now broadly back where we started pre-LME trading halt,” Sean Mulshaw of Wood Mackenzie told the Investing News Network (INN) in Q2. “We expect a downward trend in nickel prices over the rest of this year and, given where we are now, we could be heading below US$22,000 in Q3.”
