London copper advances as investors eye US stimulus package

  • Positive COVID-19 vaccine developments, with Moderna Inc and Pfizer Inc launching two late-stage vaccines trials that could achieve regulatory approval and widespread use by end-2020.
28 Jul 2020

SINGAPORE: London copper advanced on Tuesday after US Senate Republicans proposed a $1 trillion coronavirus aid package, lifting risk sentiment.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange rose 0.3pc to $6,436.50 a tonne by 0703 GMT, while the most-traded September copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange eased 0.3pc to 51,520 yuan ($7,359.89) a tonne, having climbed as much as 1.1pc earlier in the session.

Positive COVID-19 vaccine developments, with Moderna Inc and Pfizer Inc launching two late-stage vaccines trials that could achieve regulatory approval and widespread use by end-2020, also supported sentiment.

Meanwhile, supervisors at Antofagasta Minerals' Centinela copper mine in top copper producing country Chile have agreed to a new contract offer, avoiding the possibility of a strike, the union president said on Monday.

"The talks about stimulus packages in the United States.. is weakening the dollar and helping metals higher. Strike or no strike (in Chile), this is about the wall of money finding a home," said commodities broker Anna Stablum at Marex Spectron.
