Commodity markets face headwinds from China and OPEC. Can bulls reassert control?
Topic: Diverging price trends across commodity markets suggest that fundamentals are back in the driving seat. Will demand be strong enough to cope with rising supply for oil, iron ore and copper in the year ahead?

Asia’s medium term growth outlook and its implications for major cities
Over the next five years, economic growth across Asia is likely to diverge especially with two of the giants moving in opposite directions; China slowing and India starting to realise its potential. This has implications for how the cities in these two countries are likely to expand. Major cities in southeast Asia area expected to perform relatively well but there are contrasting fortunes elsewhere. For example, in advanced Asia, the major cities of Australia should exhibit an impressive rate of jobs growth. Our expectations for the likes of Melbourne and Perth contrasts starkly with major East Asian cities in Japan and South Korea, where the pressures of ageing populations is dragging on the potential for growth in output and jobs. We present both a top-down medium-term macro outlook and tie that to how major cities in Asia are likely to develop over the next 5 years.Find Out More
