The copper market fell back from last week's highs this morning, which some traders felt may be a result of weekend economic slowing news from China. Like a number of physical commodity markets, there are many in the markets who feel that copper may need further evidence of positive progression with EU debt problems and that today's US economic data may end up having a secondary influence on the market. LME Copper Stocks were at 389,500 tons for a rise of 1,350 tons this morning, although stocks have shown declines during 15 of the last 20 days.
