Shanghai bonded copper stocks fall closer to 2015 low on arb business

Copper stocks at Shanghai bonded warehouses continued to decline on Monday May 18, falling closer to Fastmarkets' all-time low of 250,000 tonnes, which was posted in October 2015.

Fastmarkets assessed Shanghai bonded copper stocks at 250,000-260,000 tonnes on May 18, down by 13.9% from 291,000-301,000 tonnes on May 4.
The opening of an arbitrage window between Shanghai and London boosted import activity and explained the continuous decline in Shanghai bonded copper stocks, Fastmarkets understands.
