Open interest in Copper futures markets shrunk for the second day in a row on Tuesday, now by more than 2K contracts. Volume followed suit ad dropped by around 20.2K contracts, also down for the second straight session.

Wednesday’s recovery in futures prices of the base metal was in tandem with declining open interest and volume, undermining the probability of a sustained recovery. That said, the area of recent tops around 2.6250 is expected to keep limiting occasional bullish attempts, while a move to YTD lows around 2.48 should not be ruled out.
