Copper on MCX settled up 0.99% at 426.80 as support seen after Indian Rupee crashed below the 72-mark to end at a life-low of 72.45 against the US dollar on growing fears of contagion from an emerging-market rout and escalation of a global trade war.

While LME Copper prices fell on Monday after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on virtually all Chinese imports into the United States, escalating the trade dispute and stoking fears of weaker demand for industrial metals.

Benchmark LME copper closed 0.4 percent down at $5,910 a tonne, a loss of about 20 percent since hitting a 4-1/2 year high of $7,348 in June. It crashed to a 14-month low of $5,773 on Aug. 15.

In August, China’s trade surplus with the United States widened to a record even as the country’s export growth slowed slightly, an outcome that could push President Trump to turn up the heat on Beijing in their cantankerous trade dispute.

Also China’s producer inflation cooled in August amid softening domestic demand, pointing to a steadily slowing growth in the world’s second-biggest economy and largest copper user. On the trade front, the U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Friday that his administration would impose new tariffs on $267 billion of Chinese goods.

Now market participants should monitor data including China’s social financing and its M2 money supply for August, the eurozone ZEW economic confidence in September, as well as the US warehouse inventories for July.
