Dr. Copper Speaks On The Global Economy

Looking for a check-up on economic health? Look to Dr. Copper, the commodity that earned its nickname for its reputation for predicting global economic activity, especially in developing economies. For example, copper fell before the start of the credit crisis, and rebounded at the end of 2008—several months before markets started recovering. China already surpassed the US over a decade ago to become world’s largest copper consumer.[1] China accounts for approximately 40% of the world's demand for metal and that’s expected to rise 48% by 2020.[2] India’s copper consumption is expected to increase five-fold by 2020, to approximately 3 million tons a year.[3] This motif includes only stocks of copper mining companies. And that’s a focus that could be worth every penny. See more
