London copper slips but set for 2nd weekly gain on supply concerns SYDNEY: London copper edged down on Friday after rising 1 percent over the past two days but was on track to gain for the second straight week, underpinned by concerns about a shortfall in supply. The concerns have also helped push copper prices close to their highest since early March and could even lift them to their second consecutive monthly gain. A stoppage in ore shipments from Indonesia since January, as miners Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc and Newmont Mining Corp renegotiate taxes on their exports with the government, has wiped out the year's expected surplus."Given Indonesia's copper export mess, it looks to us like the market is going to be in balance or a small deficit this year," said Lachlan Shaw, analyst at Commonwealth Bank in Melbourne.
