Iron ore prices expected to increase in 2010

Bloomberg: “Forecasts for annual contract prices for iron ore, a $160 billion-a year-global market, were raised by Macquarie Group Ltd. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. after a surge in demand from China.”  Economists attribute the expected price increase to strong demand from China. Iron ore is used in steel production, so look for higher steel prices down the road.
