Global copper short-term outlook December 2017

Report summary

Copper prices have, on balance, maintained an upward trend throughout 2017, surging by 25% since the beginning of the year. Most of copper’s ascent has emerged over the second half of the year, buoyed by a combination of improved fundamentals, particularly on the demand side and a re-discovered appetite for commodities amongst many investors. Additional momentum over the tail end of the year has come in anticipation of potential supply curtailments given the host of collective labour negotiations due in 2018.
