    Blow by Blow



    Base metals,



  • MAJOR EVENTS Golds image as a haven asset has taken a battering with the metal capping its longest

    slump in more than 30 years as investors sold from bullion-backed funds. Bullion

    futures fell for a sixth-straight quarter, the longest slump since 1984, and lost 10

    percent this year. Prices, which were little changed on Thursday, plunged about 45

    percent since reaching a record high in 2011. The metal booked its third annual loss,

    the longest run since 1998, as the dollar surged on the back of tighter monetary

    policy in the U.S, joining a collapse in prices of commodities from iron ore to oil.

    Holdings in gold exchange-traded products have declined 10 times in the last 13

    sessions to 1,466.4 metric tons, near the lowest in more than six years. Prices may

    approach $1,000 in 2016, before recovering toward $1,200 by the end of the year as

    the dollar and bond yields retreat. The Federal Reserve raised borrowing costs for the

    first time in almost a decade this month, and traders are now focusing on the pace of

    further rate increases. While HSBC Holdings Plc predicts just two moves next year,

    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is among banks that see four. Bullion will drop to $950 by

    the end of next year. The selling pressure from paper investors has been felt

    particularly hard and golds safe-haven status has suffered.

    The United States is an oil exporter again. For the first time in 40 years, a ship loaded

    with U.S. crude oil set sail for foreign shores Thursday. The Bahamian tanker Theo T

    cruised out of the Port of Corpus Christi toward Europe loaded with light crude from

    the nearby South Texas Eagle Ford Shale oilfield. The U.S. banned crude oil exports

    following the oil embargo and gas crisis during the 70s. The ban was lifted as part of a

    budget deal between the president and congress this December. A previously idled

    60-mile pipeline from Pettus to Corpus Christi has been re-activated and two other

    pipelines that previously transported imported oil from the Port of Corpus Christi

    have been reversed to make the export of Texas crude possible. San Antonio's NuStar

    Logistics, which controls the pipeline network is also constructing new docks in

    Corpus Christi in anticipation of expanded exports of Eagle Ford crude. Once

    completed NuStar will be able to load 90,000 barrels of Texas crude per hour. NuStar

    is not alone in its investment in the Port of Corpus Christi. Construction of a $1 billion

    pipe plant is underway as well as a $750 million iron plant which will be fired by

    inexpensive natural gas from the Eagle Ford.

    The boom in Corpus Christi comes as oil prices have crashed and the end of the US

    crude export ban could offer Eagle Ford producers relief.

    exporter for first

    time in 40 years.

    Copper, Metals

    Sag Most Since

    2008 as Cuts Too

    Late to Save 2015.

    Industrial metals fell, capping the worst year since 2008, as production cuts and signs

    of improving demand in China came too late to counter falling consumption and

    excess supplies. Aluminum, copper, zinc, tin, nickel and lead capped annual losses,

    with nickel dropping 42 percent, the worst performer on the London Metal Exchange

    LMEX Index. The gauge fell 24 percent this year. Copper declined for a third straight

    year, the longest slump since 1998, amid growing supply gluts after demand faltered

    in China, the worlds biggest metals user. While producers in the Asian nation and

    elsewhere have pledged production cuts, investors spooked by wavering global

    economic growth and the possibility of persistent metals surpluses have been slow to

    return. Nine of the nations copper producers have agreed to cut sales by 200,000

    metric tons in the first three months of 2016, people with knowledge of the matter

    said Tuesday. There are still tremendous unknowns, and we will enter the New Year

    with metals not being a favored asset class. Copper for delivery in three months slid

    0.6 percent to settle at $4,705 a metric ton ($2.13 a pound) at 2:50 p.m. on the LME.

    Aluminum, tin and zinc also declined, while lead and nickel advanced. Copper futures

    for March delivery fell 0.5 percent to $2.135 a pound on the Comex in New York.
