Is copper as good a 'bellwether indicator' as so many people have said in the past? To me is seems geo-political tensions push indices about, AS WELL AS metals. Nothing shows them being indicators, simply causal to macroeconomic events.

I read that 3 and 5 year bonds have 'inverted', which might be taken as a warning indicator of a recession.  Are there any correlating indicators in the Base Metal Market, either now, or might be looked for in the near future that will serve as confirmation?

Which commodities will be hardest hit if China and the USA cannot agree trading terms?

What do you atribute  the current tightness (backwardation) in the zinc spreads too, physical or speculative activity? Basis that what impact do you think this will have on outright prices as we roll through that period.

"Palladium is more valuable than gold for the first time since 2002, with prices soaring by around 50 percent in less than four months to record levels" - it looks like this is on the back of  emissions-reducing catalysts for vehicles. Is this trend likely to continue or will supply catch up to demand?
