Scotiabank's top commodity picks for 2014 Add to ...

Scotiabank's Commodity Price Index declined by a sharp -5.8 per cent month-over-month in November and is currently -10.4 per cent below a year earlier. While commodity prices lost ground in 2013 — partly due to disappointingly slow global growth (2.9 per cent in 2013, down from 3.2 per cent in 2012) — signs point to a bottoming in 2014 and a return of the ‘Bull-Run’ in the second half of the decade.
