Report summary

The copper market service short term outlook (STO) is published monthly and provides a forecast of copper supply and demand fundamentals over the next two years. Positive macro news the weaker dollar and ongoing concerns about supply disruptions continued to underpin copper prices as the producer reporting season kicked off in July. These factors were supplemented in the final week of the month by news that the Chinese are considering banning imports of some grades of copper scrap by the end of 2018 over environmental concerns pushing prices above $6 400/t.
