Tin Eyes $20,000 as Best Performing Metal This Quarter: Chart

Tin is trading just shy of $20,000 a metric ton, a level last seen in early 2015. The metal used for solder in electronics has jumped 16 percent this quarter and is the best performer on the London Metal Exchange, as warehouse stockpiles shrink to the smallest since 2008. “Except for Myanmar, the other major tin-producing countries didn’t see any increase in production this year,” Cui Lin, China Chief Representative of the International Tin Research Institute, said by phone from Beijing.
