Copper Futures About-Face on Demand Risk

Copper futures did a complete “about-face” today after yesterday’s run-up to the $3.10 level. Copper futures are back trading below $3.00 today after it was learned weaker US & Chinese inflation numbers are signaling slowing economies and less industrial metals demand.

Separate domestic and Chinese reports today revealed for the first time in a year, US wholesale prices fell unexpectedly last month. At the same time, reports from China show costs to consumers there rose at the slowest pace in almost five years. The significance here is these two countries represent the planet’s biggest copper consumers.

The trend for copper futures, although technically down, have been choppy at best. I will consider shorting copper futures on a pullback soon.
