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.Since hitting a peak in February on news of stoppages at Escondida and Grasberg the gains in three month copper prices have gradually unravelled. A steady inflow of metal into exchange warehouses a shift in sentiment by the investor community and the lack of any significant upturn in demand as we head into the second quarter have all weighed on prices.
