Copper has been part of the human conversation for thousands of years, from the Bronze Age right up to Brexit. This mining commodity is inextricably tied to the health of the global economy, with a bewildering array of factors influencing the metal’s supply/demand dynamics and market value.
Between Brexit, an escalating US-China trade spat and concerns over Europe’s economic fortunes, modern copper prices face volatility and some degree of uncertainty.
