The copper market was unable to hold onto early gains this morning, despite the fact that July copper this morning started out roughly 7 cents above yesterday's spike low. Some traders think that yesterday's extensive recovery may hint at some form of major bottom for copper prices, but that outlook may have been partially undermined by renewed weakness this morning. A large portion of the market feels that a Euro zone break-up will be avoided or that central bankers will take action soon to avoid a sustained return to recession, although some traders feel that copper prices may be reflecting concern that central bankers and or the G7 will be unable to reach a solution to Euro zone debt problems during the near future.
