ZMP Live Expert Opinion

Frit raw materials prices fall further. Marketers speak long free fall. Many observers are surprised by the still large stocks. But where do you come from?

It may be full product warehouses and excess contract goods in some cases, so much as previously but apparently already has been sold, the situation will look altogether different. Unfortunately it's always thereafter smarter. To avoid expensive mistakes fewer contracts without fixed prices and more hedging in the futures market might usefully be probably.
