Bloomberg reports that copper may rally to a record $12,000 a metric ton in the first quarter with strong demand from China.

The market news is quoted as saying,

Higher demand from China may extend a 49 percent rally in London copper prices amid expectations for global consumption to exceed supply. Imports of copper and products by China rebounded for the first time in three months in June after stockpiles tumbled 38 percent from this year’s high.
