    I believe that will work out - on the long run

    Copper continued to be a good short in the days following this recommendation.

    Great idea but I also have concerns about going long anything right now so I'll pass. Good to know though, I didn't think about the electric vehicle angle.

    Nice to have people like Mr. Boockvar present ideas with a longer time frame that just weeks or months. Copper miners will get some through the storm ..... with dividends.

    Good fundamental comments; but technically weakening chart. It needs to hold above 50day MA, otherwise it will sink to 34sh. If the latter level is broken down, more downtrend might be in the horizon.

      Nicholas... yes that's right. Note that despite Dr Hunt's statement that MMT will cause "hyperinflation" (terrible for bonds), Dr Hunt remains bullish bonds for now because in his opinion 1) US growth will plunge from here forward and be 0% by 4Q (the 1Q beat was an anomaly heavily borrowing from the future with inventory build, which bodes ill for later this year), and 2) the legality of passing MMT into law and practice will take time thus he will have time to adjust portfolios accordingly. However, others state that in a crisis, MMT will be passed & implemented quickly.

      No one talks about copper recycle market? How much are we getting from that and does that impact supply side?

      Well, per Lacy Hunt this month, MMT will unleash commodity inflation the likes of which very few humans alive today have seen.

      It’s all about the pennies->copper. “Penny wise, dollar polish!” Translation: Making decisions with large amounts of money (pennies) that end up making Great sense for affecting larger amounts of money! (Dollars). Making a bid for SCCO & thanks for the WMB trade Peter!

    SCCO releases earnings on Wednesday. Strange that he didn't mention that at all in the interview, but a catalyst to the price coming up. Buy any weakness.

    Isn't this an even better argument for lithium?

    Maybe right but I think its a bit early. In the long run copper will be a big buy.
