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.Over the past month copper market sentiment has been influenced both positively and negatively by a variety of factors. These have included sizeable movements in copper exchange inventories ongoing supply disruptions US President Trump (and the dollar) and of course developments in China. While prices have managed to recover from the lows seen early on in May we believe that China's fortunes in particular as well as the impact of further supply disruptions will both have a significant influence on the direction of copper prices over the coming months.
