The price of copper rose above 9,000 US dollars per ton for the first time in more than nine years. Bets on a rebound from the epidemic have triggered a warning that there may be a historic shortage. This economic trend vane is expected to record the longest continuous increase in history.

Copper prices rose more than 2% on Monday, and February is expected to achieve an unprecedented 11-month increase. Driven by expectations that post-pandemic consumption will exceed short-term supply, basic metals have risen sharply, while raw materials such as copper and nickel have been boosted by their importance to the clean energy transition. Given the sharp upward pace, market observers have begun discussions on whether a new commodity supercycle is imminent.

LME's three-month copper futures were reported at $9,133.50 per ton, having previously hit $9,139.50, the highest intraday price since 2011. All other major base metals also rose.
