Copper prices dipped slightly lower on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported, as trading remained light on Christmas Eve.
As quoted in the publication:
Copper for March delivery, the most actively traded contract, was recently down 0.1% at $2.1225 a pound on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Prices for the industrial metal are up around 6% after hitting their lowest level in more than six years in November. As the year winds down, some investors are taking profits on those gains, traders said.
