Base metals

What does it mean?

Base metals refers to industrial non-ferrous metals - also known as "common" metais - and exclude precious metals such as gold and silver. These base metals include copper, aluminium, lead, nickel, tin and zinc.

TheBull says...

Base metals, while not as sexy as the shiny "precious" metals such as gold, silver and platinum, formed a significant part of commodities investments in the recent super-cycle for commodities, which came crashing to earth in 2008. The website Kitco is the preeminant source of all things relating to base metals.
