Iron ore: Soaring and roaring

The rebound in China’s steel demand, considerably faster than expected, has left Macquarie analysts surprised. But that’s not all. Citi economists expect China to set a growth target of 5.5% in its 14th five-year plan. Admittedly, it is less than the 6.5% rate of growth aimed for by China in its 13th five-year plan.
