Take physic, pomp

LME copper inventories about to break through 300,000MT

Here’s the chart as stands today, with the latest LME number hot off the press:

Add to this the first inventory climb in Shanghai for nine days (up 1.7% to 19,656MT) and the rise over at COMEX, up 228 short tons to 53,209 tons. For sure, these smaller warehouses aren’t as important as big daddy LME but the trend is clear in all places, this despite lower than expected recent copper production in the world’s two biggest export countries, Chile and Peru.
DYODD, dude.

UPDATE: Nervous copper longs send anonymous messages to Otto, hiding their fear and loathing of his superior economics skills behind mockery.

Copper levels up a bit lately.. STOP PRESS! LOL Otto, come on.. it was at 550,000 tonnes this February and now it is at 300,000.. it’s a natural swing. I expect the spot to retrace to around 2.40-2.50 before another run up. Didn’t you say it was ready for a pullback around 2-2.20? That was over 30% ago. We know you are bearish on copper but you were plain wrong. Let it go.
