      Print QUEUEQ..Iron ore, trading near 16-month highs, may slump 54 percent to the lowest level since 2009 as China boosts production and global supply climbs, said UBS AG. (UBSN)

      Rates may tumble to $70 a ton in the three months ending September after trading between $130 and $160 through June, Sydney-based commodity analyst Tom Price said in a phone interview today. China is the world’s biggest importer.

      Iron ore has surged 75 percent from a near three-year low in September as China’s growth rebounded from a seven-quarter slowdown. That may prompt an increase in Chinese output and idled mines with capacity of 100 million tons a year are set to return to the market from March, according to Macquarie Group Ltd. on Feb. 22. Global seaborne supplies will climb 9.1 percent this year, Morgan Stanley estimates.
