Macro Economy
 
In domestic market, rumors said that the Chinese government is going to speed up the infrastructure project that contains over RMB 70 trillion funds.

Moreover, economic growth of today is more significant than it of 6 years ago, the simulation effect of RMB 70 trillion for current GDP is not as powerful as previous RMB 40 trillion for 2008 or 2009. Besides, the Chinese HSBC service PMI of December released yesterday is higher than prior period, indicating Chinese economy transition.

International Copper Study Group (ICSG) reported in December that there would be an excess supply of 390,000 tons of global refined copper in 2015, completely toppled previous five-year’s short supply. Since China and Europe lowered their demand of copper, supply kept growing. Moreover, Chinese copper production continuously increases in a double-digit growth, indicating the release of smelting capacity. Currently, fundamental surplus is the main stress.
