According to foreign news on May 22, the well-known investment bank Goldman Sachs said on Monday that it lowered its forecast for aluminium prices in 2023 from $2,700/mt to $2,431/mt. It also lowered its forecast for copper price to $8,689/mt from $9,750/mt.
Goldman Sachs said it still expects its 12-month price targets - $2,850/mt for aluminium and $10,000/mt for copper -- to "eventually materialise".
Goldman Sachs emphasised that nickel prices could fall sharply due to a surge in supply from Indonesia and China, with a 12-month price target of $16,000/mt.
Zinc prices are expected to continue to be priced according to the cost curve, with a 12-month price target of $2,000/mt, as the supply shortage is expected to end this year.
