Copper and Zinc dropped early in July as concerns over tariffs put a brake on the metal prices. This is a good example how daily and weekly changes can be impacted more by the news of the day rather than supply and demand. When prices change based on the news they can just as quickly reverse. We saw prices drop as tariffs were announced, rebound when no immediate impact was seen, and drop again as more tariffs were announced. Where it will go from here depends on the next round of news and at some point, supply and demand however it remains a good time to purchase Copper Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, and Zinc Oxide.We are running an Early Take Program for Zinc Sulfate Fertilizer Grade. Call for details including program period, pricing, and extended payment terms!On July 10, 2018, U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer announced that at President Trump’s request, USTR has initiated the process of imposing an additional 10 percent ad valorem duty on approximately $200 billion worth of imports from China. This will potential impact over 6000 lines of commodities including chemicals.
