Australia's index of commodity prices, in SDR terms, dropped 14.9% in April, following a revised 4.8% fall in March, the Reserve Bank said Friday.

The main contributors to the decline were the prices of coking coal, iron ore and steaming coal. However, prices of copper, nickel and wool increased.

In Australian dollar terms, the commodity index slipped 20.1% in April compared to a revised 7.3% fall in the previous month.
