Copper is called: 'Dr Copper' for a good reason isn't it?
So it correlates with industrial activity and expansion of the infrastructure (road, highway, airport etc.) and the home market activity and more recently with Electric Vehicule:

Can you be more specific on your questions? At my level of interest it correlates with Materials eg Stoxx 600 Europe Basic Resources and I monitor the correlation between copper and gold and in a certain way but with a delay in one direction or the other with major indexes as S&P500 and of course there is a correlation with the usd index and with oil price.

In one word it is on the top of my radar....particularly in the current period...

Copper correlation

The following link contain future market correlations for the last 180 days


/HG shows correlation to /YM (expected) and both Live/feeder cattle, lol

Not sure why feeder cattle would be correlated with copper, but these things do happen, until they don't, like the rest of the
market. Maybe a demand for beef indicates expansion which then takes copper..

Have fun.

I checked the data base of MRCI. (By the way, a service I strongly recommend for seasonal charts, volatility charts, and correlations.)

Currently there are 4 commodities with a correlation to copper of 67 - 69 % for the previous 180 trading days: BP, PL, LC, and FC.

Best regards, Myrrdin

There will never be direct correlation...

but a good rule...if u want up or dn....it will be close to indexs...ES/NQ....when a move round about starts....check Dec 24th bounces indx ...Dr Copper....

its related n sametime not related....rollovers...on metals work different than indexs....their hedges by producers and commercials on metals HAS to be different....hence i word this...as there is a relation n not. u cannot do this blindly.

hence if u follow the Dr....a good rule ...if u may want to follow which side Retail is on....that will keep you away from the bad trades .....so in effect dissect COT.
