Copper prices climbed up nearly 4% on Wednesday on relief that China's Evergrande would pay interest on a domestic bond, relaxing the country's second-biggest property giant's troubles to hit the global economy. December delivery copper futures on COMEX traded 0.06% down at US$4.22 per pound as of 23 September 2021 at 11:01 AM AEST.
The futures surged significantly after touching one-month lows, earlier this week. Copper prices hit a record high level during May 2021 of US$4.9 per pound due to strong demand from the manufacturing industry and tight supplies from Chile.
