  1. I am an experienced algorithmic equities trader, but I would like to learn how to trade copper. By learning to trade, I mean, I would like to figure out how to analyze the fundamentals and have copper positions for extended periods of time and possibly also as an investment (either long or short.)

    What sources of information should I look at, and what books could give me some insight into what analysts would look at?
  2. I used to trade LME 3M and Comex HG (previously CU? I cannot remember) for many years. I mostly focused on TA instead of FA. If you analyze FA, you would want to pay attention on weekly warehouse report, contango/backwardation, stock markets, news, ... etc.
  3. warehouse report -> inventory report
