SHANGHAI, Aug. 28 (SMM) – LME copper prices rose above USD 5,100/mt helped by a 10% surge in crude oil price Thursday and touched a high of USD 5,142/mt before ending at USD 5,124/mt, up USD 204/mt.

Rising Chinese and US shares boosted market sentiment, prompting some investors to return to risky assets. China’s stock market posted an over 5% increase. In the US, the Q2 GDP growth and initial jobless claims both beat forecasts.
