Copper: copper jumped to a high of $4941 a tonne in the morning. Copper prices rebounded today as global recession stimulus measures in response to the epidemic continued and market concerns over Friday's larger-than-expected decline in non-farm data in the United States eased. In addition, the South American epidemic has a greater impact on the supply side, Chile and Peru copper mines and copper shipments are more difficult, and last week Mexico declared a state of emergency, there is a strong support below the copper price. As a result, after digging down $4937 / ton in the morning, copper prices rose in a straight line, with the overall center of gravity rising to $5010 / ton above the $5000 mark. Entering the European market, copper prices rose again, rising $5110 / tonne, to 18: 00, Lun copper prices of $5086.5 / tonne, up $177.00 / tonne, up 3.61 per cent.
