Dr copper declines on strong U$, weak demand and soaring inventories

“Copper fell for the second time in three days as imports dropped to a 20-month low in China, the world’s largest user, and exchange inventories increased.

Inbound Chinese shipments of refined metal, alloy and products were 298,102 metric tons last month, down 38 percent from a year earlier, customs figures showed today. Global inventories monitored by exchanges in London, New York and Shanghai climbed to 803,128 tons today, rising above 800,000 for the first time since December 2003.”
