The price of three-month nickel was up $300 to $11,700 per tonne in late afternoon trade in London Wednesday on the possibility that production cuts will tighten supplies.

Copper prices were also higher as March copper added 1 cent to $1.50 per pound in New York and three-month copper gained $60 to $3,370 per tonne on the London Metal Exchange.

Prices for precious metals was also mixed on the session.

April gold was $11.40 lower to $890 per troy ounce as some investors sold their stocks of the metal after prices rose above the $900 level on Monday and Tuesday.

March silver was down 21 cents to $11.96 per troy ounce, but April platinum added $4.70 to 4961.50 per troy ounce in afternoon trade in New York.
