Ask Colin

Where can I find commodity prices on the Internet?

This question arose out of this item in Newsletter No 55:

Help Wanted - Commodity Prices
From 16 January (2006) the London Metals Exchange will only provide price information by paid subscription. I have a reader who is looking for new free sources on the internet for commodity prices especially for aluminium, copper, lead, nickel, tin, zinc, silver, coffee and crude oil. This is outside my area, but any reader contributions of appropriate URLs would be helpful. Please email me at colin@bwts.com.au. I will put the URLs contributed on my web site progressively in the Ask Colin section under the keyword Commodity Prices.

Below are the replies I have received. I have not checked any of them. I have deleted duplications.

www.kitcometals.com (aluminium, copper, nickel, zinc, lead, uranium etc)
