Copper Miners Are Impacted by the US-China Trade War

As we noted previously, copper miners including Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), Glencore (GLEN-L), and Southern Copper (SCCO) have fallen this year. The fall in copper miners’ stock prices has been led by weak copper prices. Although copper started the year on a positive note after sharp gains in December 2017, trade war concerns have taken a toll on copper.
