Headwinds In Copper Base Metal Pricing

Copper prices have fallen to two-year lows and are now trading at $3.29 per pound (July 21-22), which is 1.50% lower than the previous closing price.

Copper prices fell on Thursday as concerns about demand in China and a slowing global economy were exacerbated by rising inventories, while a weaker US dollar offered a little support.

“Copper Base Metal “is often regarded as a gauge of global economic health. The increased Copper prices declare the global economy is wealthy, and lowered Copper prices imply the global economy is in negative trends.

Copper prices are still down more than 30% from a record high in March, indicating the global economy is in trouble. Weak demand in China, the world’s largest metal consumer, also weighed on Copper prices. The country’s COVID-19 restrictions have dampened market expectations of a quick recovery in Copper and other base metals demand.

US Dollar INDEX: A weaker US dollar index has recently helped greenback metal pricing commodities cheaper for buyers using other currencies.

Global Recession: Metals and equities had tumbled in recent months, and the dollar had reached 20-year highs as sky-high inflation, and rapidly rising interest rates drove many countries into recession. The global recession weakening the base metals demand and lowering Copper prices further down.

Interest Rate Hikes: The major central banks have decided to raise the interest rates and expect a 75-basis-point US interest rate rise next week rather than a 100-basis-point increase that would have been more damaging to economic growth.

Meanwhile, European Central Bank can increase a bigger-than-expected 50-basis-point rate in the coming days. The increase in interest rates greatly damages the Copper Base Metals demand and lowers Copper pricing.

On the Demand Side: China accounts for about half of global Copper Consumption. The reoccurrence of Covid in China significantly impacted Copper Base Metals demand and the global economy.

Although China, the world’s largest metals consumer, is not in recession, COVID-19 restrictions have curbed industry and dampened manufacturing activity. Investors anticipated that China would recover from Covid lockdowns in July and that demand for Copper Base Metals would increase.

However, China’s lockdowns and demand headwinds are not yet over. The Covid outbreak in China is escalating and significantly impacting Copper prices.

Japanese Bank Nomura said 41 Chinese cities were implementing full or partial lockdowns or district-based control measures, affecting 22.8% of the country’s gross domestic product.

Copper Stocks in Warehouses: Because of poor Copper consumption, Copper stocks strengthen. Copper stocks LME registered warehouses rose from 5,925 tonnes to 136,200 tonnes, up 20%.
