Copper futures performance on the strong side, in 42000 yuan / ton above shock finishing, holders near the water near 42000 yuan has no intention to continue to reduce prices, so the lower source of flat water copper supply has been few people out, traders based on pre-festival risk aversion factors, few receiving groups, and the festival period is still expected to have a large number of imported copper to the warehouse, so the final trading time before May Day will be more obvious, risk aversion will be the main body of trading guidance.

Today, Guangdong electrolytic copper spot contract rose 240-250, the average price fell 10; wet copper rose 200-210, flat. The average price of electrolytic copper rose 395 yuan / ton to 42940 yuan / ton, and the average price of wet copper rose 405 yuan / ton to 42900 yuan / ton. In the spot market, there are 2 working days left from the May Day holiday. Although some businesses want to offer goods, more and more shippers continue to lower their prices, and the desire to basically complete replenishment purchases downstream is not strong. As a result, today's rising water continues to decline, good copper has an early trading price of 280 yuan / ton to 240 yuan / ton; Pingshui copper dropped from 250 yuan / ton to 220 yuan / ton, and even heard a small amount of 200 yuan / ton trading price.
