Copper ended the trading session with a total of 300,996 contracts open interest, surpassing the previous record of 297,830 set on February 1, 2017.

Mr Young-Jin Chang CME Group Global Head of Metals said that "Copper and other industrial metals have continued to experience heightened levels of volatility and uncertainty.
