Copper Prices Are Moving In a Wide Range amid Weak Supply & Demand

Copper prices are now at a positive momentum and are trading at $3.64 per pound (Aug-19-22) in the CME futures, which is 1.96% higher than the previous settlement price of $3.57.

Copper prices increased on Friday, signaling a positive end to the week. Copper prices are rising as expectations for a strong demand outlook in China thrive, despite concerns about further interest rate hikes and slowing global economic growth.

Global stock markets, on the other hand, fell following the announcement by US and European central bank officials that inflationary pressures were not decreasing, implying that interest rates will continue to rise in the coming days.

Furthermore, investors are concerned about the Chinese economy as the People's Bank of China's unexpected interest rate cuts indicates extreme pressure on the central bank to support economic growth, which may impact Copper prices.

According to data from the International Copper Study Group (ICSG), the global copper market shifted to an excess supply of 5,000 tonnes in May, up from a shortfall of 23,000 tonnes the previous month.

Previously, the ICSG reported a 3,000-tonne excess in April. Copper inventory in major Chinese markets fell 400 mt from the previous Friday to 70,300 mt. The total inventory decreased by 89,400 mt compared to the same period last year, and the inventory was 159,700 mt.

So, based on the ICSG data, we can see that China's Copper stockpiles are relatively low and import premiums are high, implying that China has begun importing and Copper's demand will rise in the future, gradually supporting Copper prices.
