Bloomberg reported that Macquarie Group Ltd said the financing accords that involve nickel help absorb a glut of the metal used in steel production and supporting prices.

As quoted in the market news:

Nickel for delivery in three months fell 1.7 percent to $16,935 at 4:53 p.m. on the London Metal Exchange.
