An analysis of iron ore prices during the latest commodity
Abstract. This paper performs a quantitative analysis of iron ore prices, and is an extension of Wårell (), which analyzed the change in iron ore pricing regime on iron ore prices using data from 2003 until September 2012.However, considering that the iron ore market still was characterized by surging prices in 2012, it is of interest to see if the same conclusions hold today when the latest
