copper futures;

Copper and copper futures have a special place in the commodity futures universe. As one of the most important industrial and building materials in the world, copper’s market price is seen as an important fundamental economic indicator for not only the health of the U.S. economy, but also for the robustness of the world’s economy as a whole. In fact, because of copper’s generally accepted importance as an economic indicator in predicting and reflecting over-all economic health, it is ascribed to be the only commodity with a doctorate degree in the field of economics, hence the title, “Dr. Copper”. Cannon Trading’s brokers affectionately call out the words “Dr. Copper” when referring to copper’s present price and market movements, amongst themselves, in a cheerful genuflecting to the respect we believe this commodity and futures contract deserves. Copper’s recent market trading range can be observed in the chart below. Recent buy signal was generated with a speculation that copper may test recent highs. Stay tuned!
