Tin Favored by Standard Bank as Copper to Zinc Have Oversupplies

Tin has the best outlook among the six main industrial metals on the London Metal Exchange because of shortages, while copper is entering a “sustained period of oversupply,” according to Standard Bank Plc.

Refined tin will be in deficit through 2016 while copper, aluminum and zinc are oversupplied, the bank said in a report today. Tin and lead are poised for “bullish price surprises,” according to the report.
