Among the raft of ASX-listed uranium players that have enjoyed a long-awaited lift in investor sentiment in recent months, Boss Energy looks a stand-out (reports The West Australian).

Among the raft of ASX-listed uranium players that have enjoyed a long-awaited lift in investor sentiment in recent months, Boss Energy looks a stand-out (reports The West Australian). The uranium price has been in the doldrums since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011.

Separating reality from speculative share trading has probably never been harder but if you look through the dust stirred up by day-traders and this week’s stock market correction you will see the start of the world’s seventh great resources boom.

Separating reality from speculative share trading has probably never been harder but if you look through the dust stirred up by day-traders and this week’s stock market correction you will see the start of the world’s seventh great resources boom. Recent events highlight those points because on one hand there was a feeding frenzy in the U.S. of online traders using mobile phone apps to stir the market, while on the other hand there was growing confidence that supply shortages will drive commodities higher for at least the next decade.

Gold got a Joe Biden bump after his inauguration as the U.S. President yesterday

Gold got a Joe Biden bump after his inauguration as the U.S. President yesterday, but the battery-metals sector is (so far) proving to be the more significant winner as the new man in the White House brings with him a range of tough environmental protection policies. A clearer look of what’s to come can be seen in China where there is a market for trading in obscure commodities such as neodymium, a rare earth favoured by makers of the long-life batteries used in electric cars.

Demand up. Supply down. Price heading for a 10-year high. It doesn’t get much better for nickel

Demand up. Supply down. Price heading for a 10-year high. It doesn’t get much better for nickel—except for the potential to get a lot better for a metal which has a well-earned reputation for extreme highs (and lows) (reports Tim Treadgold in Forbes). Since suffering a Covid-19 collapse last March when the price fell to $10,800 a ton, nickel has been on a largely uninterrupted rise to last sales at $18,244/t, up almost 70% in 10 months.

“Follow the money.” What better time to remind investors of that advice than when a U.S. President heads for the exit and financial “flows” appear to be priming the world for a fresh commodity boom.

“Follow the money.” What better time to remind investors of that advice than when a U.S. President heads for the exit and financial “flows” appear to be priming the world for a fresh commodity boom.
