Investors speculating on the copper market have a lot of options, but one of the easiest is through ETFs and global forecasts for copper prices are upbeat.

Commodity producers have been tightening their belts and cutting back, leading to a prolonged period of underinvestment and potentially fueling higher prices in raw materials and related exchange traded products ahead. Portfolio managers project that the price of copper, nickel and aluminum could surge past prior records, or over 40% current levels, in the coming years, the Wall Street Journal reports. After an extended period where commodity producers have not expanded into new projects and mining sites, the dwindling supply could push up prices.
