So, what events have transpired in the exciting world of nickel this week? Price movements are at the top of the list: nickel has gone from a low of c. US$11,000/t up to US$13,430/t today. It did actually hit a peak of US$13,512/t last week, but Selby attributes this to nickel trading in synergy with some momentum drivers around the Shanghai Index.
Just as the nickel price was starting to recede, Elon Musk, the figure of ultimate encouragement for nickel/battery metals investors, has told nickel miners to produce as more nickel in his quarterly call. He's clearly gearing up to go big and kickstart the EV revolution in style. After launching the mid-tier Model 3, Musk needs this to be the cash cow for his company. Many have regarded Tesla stock as immensely overvalued given sales figures, but the c. $35,000 Model 3 could be a real game changer, building on the success of the Model S and Model X; I'll hold off on the Cybertruck for now.
