•Lack of investment demand and soft physical demand coupled with rising equities in the US also indicates losing interest in the precious metal.
•Optimism in the US economy continues to build with host of economic data sets indicating momentum in the economy will pressurize prices.

Weekly Recommendation:
Weekly Price Performance
• LME Copper prices plunged by 2 percent last week owing to probe into financing transactions
at China’s Qingdao Port that has led to concerns of falling demand in deals using the metal as
collateral. Also, rate cut by the ECB in its monetary policy meeting exerted downside pressure
on prices. Further, mixed economic data from the US and Euro Zone pushed the prices lower.

week to May 27 showed that speculators reduced net long wagers in copper to 16,240

Outlook
• We expect LME Copper prices to trade sideways taking cues positive economic data from the
US and China which will support an upside in prices. Also, weakness in the DX along with
favorable data from Euro Zone will support gains.
• While on the other hand, mixed global market sentiments will cap sharp gains or even reversal
in prices.
