This China Stimulus Won’t Power Copper Higher

Friday 01:31 GMT

In China, the single largest copper user, power and transport clock in at 22% and 8% of total consumption, respectively.

That is not such good news for copper demand, given that the latest round of China stimulus is likely to focus on areas like transport and water systems. A big government press conference on investment on Sept. 18, which sparked copper’s recent rebound, didn’t refer to power projects, while transport and water management were mentioned 48 times and 34 times respectively.
