    Base metals,




    AJOR EVENTSver continues to be a worst performer among precious metals in 2013 after having

    len sharply by 31% in Q2 but partly offset by 11% gains in Q3, 2013. Silver has

    enefitted from the rise in gold prices and mixed trend in industrial.

    ver prices which fell 29% till Q3 will continue to face challenges but will be

    creasingly determined by movement of gold prices. Restrictions on gold imports will

    ntinue to positively impact gold. Silver has a correlation of 0.98 with gold and 0.94

    th base metals. The major challenges for silver comes from increased production in

    cent years and rising scrap supply which will keep the overall market suggest that if silver prices remain below $20, it is highly likely that more

    imary silver miners will be forced to put their high cost mines on care and

    aintenance until prices recover. Bearishness in gold prices could also hurt silver

    though sharp correction in silver prices could boost its demand. As per early market

    timates, global fabrication demand for silver will remain stable as global economy

    proves slowly. Mine production is likely to grow further as price remains well above

    storical levels and as higher production of base metals may increase by-product


    s bear party in Oil complex but doubtful analysts are quite neutral on this volatile

    d complex commodity that is much in demand worldwide.

    ne major reason for the bearish trend that pushed WTI crude Oil futures December

    ntract to $96.16 low was the surge in oil inventories in USA. The Energy

    formation Administration (EIA) had reported crude stock piles rose 5.2 mnb barrels

    r the week ended October 18. MCX crude oil futures for November delivery was

    en trading down by 0.10% at Rs. 6020 per barrel as of 11:20 PM IST on Thursday.

    R also appreciated by 0.35% against USD this morning which also affect crude

    ices in negative way.

    eanwhile WTI Crude Oil has advanced to 97.47 after hitting a low of $96.16 as the

    test HSBC China PMI data showed manufacturing index rose to 50.9 in October.

    hina is the second biggest oil consumer. China will account for about 11 percent of

    obal oil demand this year, compared with 21 percent for the U.S., according to

    recasts from the International Energy Agency.

    World refined


    production to

    rise 3.9% in 201

    orld refined copper production in 2013 is expected to increase by 3.9% compared to

    12 as constrained production from maintenance and temporary operational

    utdowns in some regions is overshadowed by expanded output in other regions,

    cording to International Copper Study Group (ICSG).

    2014, refined copper production is expected to grow by around 5.5% to 22.1 Mt

    th the restoration of production at existing plants and new and expanded capacity

    electrolytic plants in China, and to a lesser extent SX-EW plants in Africa. Primary

    fined copper production is expected to grow by about 7% and secondary production


    SG expects world apparent refined demand in 2013 to remain unchanged from that

    2012 (20.5 Mt). Although real demand for copper in China is expected to increase by

    out 6% in 2013, apparent demand in China (that is uncorrected for unreported stock

    anges) is expected to decrease in 2013 as a result of much lower refined imports.

    age in the rest of the world is expected to increase by around 1%. With better

    ospects for the world economy in 2014, world usage is expected to grow by around

    5% in 2014 with world-ex-China expected to grow by 2.5%.
