Copper prices are rising after two reports boosted optimism that the U.S. economic recovery is gaining traction.
U.S. builders started work on homes in December at the fastest pace since the summer of 2008, the Commerce Department said Thursday. The Labor Department also reported that the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell to a five-year low last week.
The price of copper, which is used in construction, typically tracks the outlook for global economic growth.
“Undoubtedly, the strength in the housing data was certainly supporting the copper market,” said Dave Meger at Vision Financial Markets.
Traders will also closely follow a series of reports about the Chinese economy, to be published late Thursday, for indications about the outlook for growth in the world’s second-largest economy, Meger said.
Copper for March delivery rose 5.55 cents to $3.662 a pound in trading Thursday, its second-biggest gain of the month.
Gold for February delivery gained $7.60 to $1,690.80 an ounce.
