According to this article from Bloomberg, the recent rise in the price of copper is because China has cut their production not that demand has risen. So this may be temporary.

Yea that makes no sense to me.

A Cut in the refinment of raw copper ore, causes a spike in the price.

I think it was an attempt by china to crash the price before the negotiation of next years ore contracts. It just did not have the desired effect.
