Copper: Price recovers from one-year lows and exceeds $4

  • Copper price recovers amid supply disruption issues.
  • Copper on Comex recovers the $4 mark, helped by some dollar weakness.
  • Recovery in equity markets also contribute to the rebound of the metal.

The copper price in Comex is rising after three days of declines on Tuesday, staging a rebound from the lowest level since January 2021 reached on Monday at $3.94. The daily high was reached at $4.07 before correcting to $4.03.

Meanwhile, the drop in copper stocks on the LME adds to supply concerns, underpinning the copper price.
