No New Year’s cheer for iron ore: analysts

The Australian Financial Review – Page: 22 : 3-Dec-18

Data from Fastmarkets MB shows that the spot price for iron ore with 62 per cent iron content was trading at $US65.95 a tonne at the end of November, having peaked at a month-high of $US77.2/tonne on 9 November. Analysts from Liberum Capital are bearish about the outlook for iron ore, forecasting that falling Chinese steel mill profits will reduce demand for higher-grade ore. Liberum has also changed its recommendation on shares in Rio Tinto, BHP Group and Anglo American to "sell".
