The copper market has started the week with strong gains, finding benefit from rising macro-economic sentiment. A weaker dollar, stronger equities, and rising optimism for the Euro zone have all been thought to be positive factors for the copper market this morning. Many traders feel that the focal point of the copper market may be reports that the IMF might step in and support Italy. LME Copper Stocks were 392,775 tons, and are now at the lowest levels since February 8th. Some traders think that copper might find additional support from expectations for an 115,000 to 120,000 Non Farm Payroll increase on Friday morning.
