But the impulse energy is insufficient, Lun copper shock fell, fell to a day low of $5170 / ton. The bulls entered the market on a low basis, and copper prices rebounded and pierced the daily moving average and broke through the $5200 mark, peaking at $5207 a tonne. However, it is difficult to stand stable above $5200, and the center of gravity of copper prices has moved down to $5190 near the daily moving average.

At 17: 00, Lun copper closed down $2, or 0.04 per cent, at $5184 a tonne. Today's low opening of copper is mainly affected by the linkage of international oil prices. At present, the oil storage space is about to run out, and ETF's move to sell the WTI6 monthly contract has once again triggered panic in the oil market. Russian Energy Minister Novak also said today that it will be difficult for oil prices to rise sharply in the short term because of weak demand for crude oil. As a result, copper prices were dragged down, falling below the 5200 mark and hovering around $5190 a tonne. However, due to macro optimism, the dollar index pierced the 100 mark today, the dollar fell sharply, and investors' risk appetite helped copper prices rise again. At present, the copper is negative, but there is a 5 -, 10-and 40-day moving average support below. Pay attention to the difference in retail sales of CBI in the UK and the US API crude oil inventory changes released tomorrow morning to test whether Lun Copper can once again stand at the $5200 / tonne level.
