December 1 – Bloomberg (Peter McGill): “Sugar prices rose to a 10-year high in New York, capping a 52 percent rally since April, on concern that exports will decline from Europe and Brazil, the world’s largest producer. Brazil is diverting more sugar cane to make ethanol, a crop-based fuel, after a surge in gasoline prices spurred an increase in alternative-fuel cars.”
December 1 – Bloomberg (Xiao Yu and Danielle Rossingh): “Aluminum prices rose to their highest in 16 years after 23 smelting companies in China, the biggest producer of the metal, agreed to cut production by 10 percent. The smelters, which produce more than 60 percent of China’s aluminum, will reduce output to lower demand for the raw material alumina and force suppliers to lower prices… Rising raw-material costs have caused losses at 80 percent of the smelters.”
