Comex Copper rises to 4-day high

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Copper, on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, is trading at a four-day high after having recovered from the losses of the Asian and European session.

Copper is trading 1.16% higher at USD 3.023/pound, after having recovered from the day’s low of USD 2.975/pound. Prices hit a high of USD 3.035 just ahead of the US opening today. Moreover, the metal has recovered from the day’s low tracking the strong performance of the European and the US Equity markets. Speculations are rife that the European Central Bank (ECB) bought Italian covered bonds as it returned to the market for a second day under its asset purchase program.

Copper prices also got a boost after the US National Association of Realtors reported the existing home sales at a one year high in September. Existing home sales rose 2.4 percent to an annual rate of 5.17 million units, beating the Reuters forecast of 5.10 million sales growth.

Copper Technical levels

Copper may rise to 3.05 levels, if the metal manages to sustain above 3.026 levels. On the other hand, prices may fall back to 2.975 levels if the support level of 3.00 is breached.
