Guangdong quoted the price of 1 # bright copper at 42800 yuan / ton to 43100 yuan / ton, the same as last Friday. Today, the price difference of refined scrap metal is 1144 yuan / ton. China's scrap metal imports rose 8.6 per cent to 380000 tons in May from a month earlier, according to customs data. However, China imported 1.46 million tons of scrap metal in January-May, down 40.7 per cent from a year earlier. However, due to the rise in grade, it is roughly estimated that imports of scrap copper increased by about 20 per cent in May from a year earlier. The cumulative amount of copper scrap imported from January to May increased by about 50,000 tons over the same period last year. For now, the supply of scrap copper should be small, but because the price advantage is still low, restricting the consumption of scrap copper.
