The price of copper resumed its upward trend on Monday in London on the back of a weaker US dollar and ongoing positive sentiment towards commodities and other riskier investments.
The Wall Street Journal Dollar Index, which measures the greenback against a basket of 16 currencies, was down 0.21% to 91.64 on Monday afternoon.
The positive sentiment has been fueled by better-than-expected economic figures out of China, as well as by speculation over the infrastructure plans of US president-elect Donald Trump.
