The RBA has recently released updated information on Commodity Prices for last month.
Index of Commodity Prices November 2013
Preliminary estimates for November indicate that the index increased by 0.1 per cent (on a monthly average basis) in SDR terms, after declining by 0.4 per cent in October (revised). The prices of iron ore and thermal coal increased in November, which were partly offset by declines in the prices of gold, coking coal and wheat. The base metals and the rural subindices also declined in the month. In Australian dollar terms, the index increased by 1.5 per cent in November.
Over the past year, the index has declined by 1.9 per cent in SDR terms. The prices of gold, wheat and coal have fallen over this period, while the price of iron ore has risen. The index has risen by 9.6 per cent in Australian dollar terms over the past year.
