Copper ignites in January 2012
China reported that imports rose to a record high last month which caused Copper to rise 3.1%. Investors took full advantage of this move by buying this commodity and moving it considerably higher. Short term investors should use the trends that candlesticks have shown to stay in the trade. Concerns over the EURO zone did not cause this market to fall as the report out of China fueled the momentum to take Copper higher which the highest level since November.
