Metal prices have rallied so far in 2021, in line with improving economic data and risk appetite, largely due to improving vaccination rates across the globe. Europe was slow to roll out vaccines, and as a result, has seen lower economic growth and weaker metals demand. However, the disconnect between supply and demand is set to continue in the near term as supply struggles to keep up. The global chip shortage is having an impact on the auto market, and there is no quick fix to this problem. Physical traders in China are reluctant to pay the high prices, but the fund community remain heavily involved. We expect metal prices to remain supported in Q2, but we are seeing early signs that supply is responding, but this will be more of a factor in H2 2021.
