Commodity prices fell for the seventh year out of the last 11 during 2018. The prices of metals such as zinc, copper and aluminium in particular fell sharply, although supply constraints resulted in strong gains for both coking and thermal coal. The US-China trade war weighed on commodity markets, and the outlook for 2019 may depend to a large extent on the actions of US President Donald Trump. Daniel Hynes of the ANZ Bank and Glyn Lawcock of UBS are upbeat about the outlook for base metals prices in 2019.
