Global copper short-term outlook April 2016


Global copper short-term outlook April 2016

Report summary

The copper metal market service short term outlook (STO) is published monthly and provides a forecast of copper supply and demand fundamentals over the next two-years. Shaking off the fairly negative mood during CESCO week, copper prices have recovered over the past month. Copper has aligned itself with gains in the oil price, whilst improving sentiment about economic conditions in China and US dollar weakness have also contributed to the rise. Generally subdued demand conditions and a lack of a supply response so far this year do, however, suggest that upside potential for prices short term remains limited.
