 How does the Global Commodity Market? 

“After strengthening during the first quarter of 2012, most commodity prices have since retreated below their end-2011 levels. The fall of prices was particularly sharp during May as the debt crisis in Europe intensified and China's growth slowed. Oil prices are expected to average 106.6/bbl in 2012, up from $104.0/bbl in 2011, assuming no further disruptions in the Middle East as OPEC continues to keep the market well supplied. Metals prices are expected to decline by 11 percent in 2012 on slower demand growth and new capacity coming online. Food prices in 2012 are expected to average 3 percent lower than in 2011, assuming a normal crop year and energy prices staying at current levels. Declines are also expected in raw materials prices due to weaker demand.”
“In August 2012, energy and precious metals prices increased by 7.8% and 2.8% respectively. Non-energy prices declined 1.5%. Food prices remained virtually flat, beverages fell marginally, raw materials dropped by 2.9%, metals down by 4.4% and fertilizers were up slightly.”
