With Asian copper prices remaining weak overnight, July copper prices this morning have fallen down to their lowest levels since October 21st. Widespread expectations of slowing remain in place in almost every major economic zone and while some traders feel that central bankers are preparing to act soon, other traders think that even more declines with equities are to be expected before official easing efforts are actually put into motion. Much weaker than expected US payroll data from late last week is expected to keep near term pressure on copper prices as well, especially if today's US Factory orders data reconfirms a pattern of US economic slowing.
