    Copper price highest in over 2 years Friday at $6,850 a tonne, its highest since June 2018, as speculators extended their buying spree on an economic recovery in top metals consumer China & helped by weakening U.S. dollar. Copper has surged by 55%, since 45-month lows in March.

  • From burngold:

    @PeterNBell @RidgelineNV Just clarifying what I mean. Stressing on IPO on the gold/tin/ copper price today/this week/next week is daft. When might that mine open? 2/5/10 years down the line? Those are the prices that need to chased?

  • From DirtyJohn85:

    #CAML – my long-term hold from today.✅ Copper price soaring, expecting great H2 results
    ✅ Hoping Dividend restated Target – £2.50+
