How will you play it, hiker?
Long PCU? FCX?

my primary intent in sharing this copper info. is:

it relates to a guage of expectations for the global economy and financial markets.

I am active as a commodity futures trader, so trading the futures vs. related stocks is my preference.

FCX has been one I have been trading.
