The copper market made a small recovery from the prior session's low, which few traders found surprising considering the magnitude of the selloff in copper prices this week. While the copper market has reacted strongly to the weakness from outside markets, seeing a 343,000 world copper surplus forecast from the World Bureau of Mineral Statistics during the first ten months of 2011 was thought to add some negative fundamentals to the mix. With some Asian equity markets posting their 8th straight decline overnight, European economic data projecting economic slowing and copper prices still significantly above their October lows, many in the market feel that copper prices may be vulnerable to further losses during the rest of this week.
