Yesterday copper reached its highest level since November 15. As the housing recession has deepened in the U.S., copper demand has decreased because the metal is frequently used for house construction. However high demand in China has kept prices high despite low worries over lower U.S. demand.
Analysts have also noted that a steep rise in canceled warrants on the London Metal Exchange has also contributed to copper's rise.
Analysts expect copper market to recover gains later this week.
