Base metals (Copper and Zinc) price forecast for Feb-25: Generatebucks

Base metals- trading tips 

Base metals including Copper has been shinning on MCX. In past two months, we have seen Copper and other base metals touching new highs.

On Friday Copper, Zinc, Aluminium and Lead closed at 462.30, 194.50, 134.40 and 145.90 respectively.

The trend for base metals is positive but we could see some profit booking in these counters. On international front, Copper prices touched new high since July after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would delay an increase in tariffs on Chinese goods scheduled for March 1.  

Citing "substantial progress" in trade talks over the weekend, Trump also said he would plan a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his estate in Florida to conclude an agreement, assuming both sides make more progress. Read more here

With decline in inflation and looking at dollar index, we can expect to see some strength in Rupee today. This could put some pressure on prices of base metals.
