Prices for raw commodities are definitely coming in and the trend is bearish. You can see it in the price of iron ore, copper, even wheat. Here are the 3 mo returns for some commodity ETFs.

We are essentially normalizing post Russian war back to pre war levels. This can only make sense under one single backdrop: the global economic demand is collapsing.
