Copper Scrap Price Forecast: US & Canada – July 13, 2022

Copper Scrap Prices

Copper Scrap prices in the United States and Canada have declined since July due to the re-imposition of new Covid lockdowns in China, weakening Scrap Metals' demand.

Manufacturing activities also slowed due to the global recession, and Scrap Metals demand from other leading countries was muted. Copper Base Metals pricing is another significant barrier driving down Copper Scrap prices even further.

The price differential between Copper Base Metals and Copper Scrap got smaller, and investors/traders eventually realized there was no profit to be made in selling Copper Scraps, resulting in low shipments.

Copper Scrap prices were hovering around $3.10 per pound in the first week of July. Copper Scrap prices decreased from $3.5 to $3.09 per pound in the second week of July. Copper Scrap prices are now at a 17-month low of $3 per pound, the lowest since February 2021.

Copper Base Metal Pricing

Copper prices on the CME futures are trading at $3.46 per pound (July-11-22), which is 1.98% lower than the previous closing price.

Copper prices fell sharply on Monday, owing to concerns about a slowing demand outlook from China, the world's largest scrap metals and base metals consumer. Meanwhile, the US dollar index rose, putting more pressure on Copper prices.

Copper prices have dropped substantially, indicating a negative signal for the global economy and increasing fears of a global recession. Since reaching a record high of around $5 per pound in March, Copper prices are down nearly 30%.

Covid Pandemic in China: After two months of Covid restrictions, the world expected China to begin importing base metals in June and the global economy to recover from its slowdown. However, in June-July, China was experiencing new Covid cases in major cities and enforcing new Covid restrictions. The weakening demand for scrap metals and base metals from China is affecting the global economy and keeping Copper prices low.

Dollar Index: A stronger US dollar makes dollar-denominated metals more expensive for holders of other currencies, reducing Copper demand.

Interest Rates: Inflationary pressures in the United States and Europe, including the United Kingdom, have prompted central banks to raise interest rates. The central banks have decided to raise interest rates in the coming days.

This has resulted in an economic slowdown, a decrease in base metals demand, and a negative signal for the global economy, raising concerns about a global recession.

COVID outbreaks in China, a stronger dollar index, and a slowing global economy keep Copper prices under pressure, in the long run, implying that this bullish trend will continue.
