Daily iron ore price update (fear is an appropriate response)

The ferrous complex was in a state of hysterical bid on February 7, 2022 as everything melted up:

There is no basis in fundamentals for this. Demand is shocking. Inventories enormous. Supply is abundant and the price surge already reopening mines. China is turning hostile to price action and seasonality will turn troublesome shortly.

But this bid long ago departed any rational foundation. It is a melt-up based upon global hot money chasing the last embers of a crazed stagflation bid.

Given it is speculative, I have no idea where it will top out. It could be today or it could be at $1000.

Fear is an appropriate response.
