Copper climbs as U.S. jobs data calms fears of policy tightening

06/06/2021 | 09:49pm EDT

HANOI, June 7 (Reuters) - Copper prices rose on Monday, as traders lapped up the latest U.S. monthly jobs report that signalled signs of recovery and calmed concerns of an early policy tightening.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange was up 0.3% at $9,979.50 a tonne, as of 0112 GMT, edging towards a key psychological $10,000-a-tonne level.

The most-traded July copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange advanced 1.1% to 71,910 yuan ($11,245.60) a tonne.

The May U.S. payrolls report showed economic recovery was on track, but not so hot that it might bring forward a policy tapering from the Federal Reserve.
