    Australia's trade surplus narrows more than expected as the slowdown in China has lowered prices and slowed demand for the minerals Oz exports. The balance looks to shrink even further in coming months as the plummeting price for iron ore filters through. The September surplus fell to A$2.56B from A$2.95B.

    More tales from the rumored slowdown in China, where steel production is diving, and taking the price of iron ore down with it. "We cannot sell anything," says a steel trader, frustrated he is still receiving product signed for under long-term contracts. The mining giants - BHP, RIO, and VALE - are selling for 5X-9X earnings. Cheap, or value traps?

    Though iron ore prices are plummeting as demand from China slides just as billions in supply projects are coming online (with more to follow), the price curve for the commodity is in backwardation - suggesting near-term supply constraint. What gives, asks the FT's Izabella Kaminska.

    The decline accelerates as the price of iron ore fell 7.2% on Tuesday, the biggest daily dive Platts has ever reported. This "implies demand for steel in China is pretty bad and a lot of steel mills have to cut production so the whole economy is bad," says a commodity researcher. On the other hand, profit margins for steelmakers could now improve.
