The article discusses issues related to the chemical industry. Throughout June 2006 there was more talk of a commodities bubble but there were price corrections, too. The average decrease, according to analysts at Sociéte Générale (SG), was 20%, with the oil price at 10% and the price of palladium down 35%. SG is convinced, too, that demand from financial investors continues to compensate for the slowdown in physical oil demand growth.
