The price gap between bare bright and refined copper fell to between RMB 100-600/mt over the past week.

However, the reluctance of downstream producers to buy restricted increases in scrap copper prices. In other news, weak transactions in the scrap copper market depressed scrap copper prices, contributing to an easing of the inverted price relationship between scrap and refined copper. The price gap between bare bright and refined copper fell to between RMB 100-600/mt over the past week.
