SHANGHAI, Aug. 13 (SMM) – On Thursday, spot copper discounts grew to RMB 120-200/mt in Shanghai, compared with RMB 39,320-39,160/mt for standard-quality copper and RMB 39,060-39,600/mt for high quality copper.

Cargo holders were active in selling at highs this morning. Hence, sufficient supply depressed spot discounts further.
