Duan Lun copper fell back from a shock near $5820 a tonne in European trading last night, falling as low as $5793.5 a tonne in front of the US market. After entering the US session, copper prices began to pull up, the operating range continued to rise, as high as $5896 / ton, close to the 5900 level.

At present, after Brexit has been forced to postpone Brexit, market uncertainty has increased, market risk aversion has increased, CMX gold prices have also stabilized at the 1500 level, and copper prices have continued to rise. At the same time, the United States, due to the poor performance of recent economic data, the market is expected to cut interest rates, waiting for its interest rate resolution next week, there are still no clear signs of economic improvement in the rest of the world.

Copper prices are expected to show a slight correction today. Spot, today's surging prices, high prices to curb the market buying sentiment, in addition, the recent tax bills and long single demand has been very few, the overall demand performance is light, in the high inventory state of the market, it is expected that today's cardholders will continue to lower their quotations.
