Australian Commodity Price Drop

Bloomberg–In October 2023, the Reserve Bank of Australia reported a 16.8% year-on-year contraction in its Commodity Price Index. This followed a revised drop of 21.3% in the preceding month. Reduced prices for thermal coal and liquified natural gas largely drove the decrease.

When measured in terms of the Australian dollar, the index fell by 14.6%. However, on a month-to-month basis, commodity prices increased by 3.3%, an improvement from the revised 4.3% rise in the previous month. Notably, the sub-indices for rural areas showed an upward trend.
