Copper
Last week expectation of US interest rate raises sweeps over the whole market, foreign exchanges in Asia and Latin America slump; reflects U.S. rate raising causes asset backflow again, as well causes concern on developing country especially China economy, Friday the State Council of China indicates will extend fluctuation range of RMB exchange rate, which shows the huge pressure on financial market. Recalls the trigger of Asian crisis in 1997 is U.S. the rate raising, and this enhances concern of financial storm coming again.
Back to copper market, global copper inventories edge up recently and it seems to be normal in slack season; which should concern on is current domestic copper inventory is in a low level and, decreases about 7000 tons again in last week to 100,000 tons. Meanwhile, domestic spot premiums to the highest level within this year, in Friday is RMB 350-410, plus the import window continuously opening, domestic supply tends to tighten is plainly; but current market focuses on the macro risks, fundamental side is in the second role. The latest news, strike of Codelco has became violent accident and one worker died. Current the 70,000 tons capacity Salvador stopped operation. Technically, copper price will fluctuate in recent low point and only raises over $5300 may get rid of downward trend. Domestic October copper resistance is RMB 38500. We recommend avoiding macro risk as for operation.
