I have identified the resistance zone of 2080 to 2100. Volume is ok and the momentum indicators are confirming the near-term uptrend. S&P 500 is trading above the 200-day moving average.

The near-term uptrend for WTI failed at 39 so this is the current reference point for the resistance level. WTI dropped 1.74% today to close at 36.72. The 36 level is a tentative support level that would trigger sell orders if crude breaks below this point. But, the major support level is 35. A Break below 35 would trigger heavy selling and a test of the February lows would come into play.

Reference my chart analysis for WTI on March 2, 2016 when 35 was major resistance for the near-term uptrend. Because of the reversal of roles, 35 is now major support.

The doji star is a potent warning when it appears after a sustained uptrend. It is a yellow light indicating caution. It appeared right below major resistance at the 200-day moving average. Monitor the price action on Tuesday for the possible formation of the evening doji star which is an open below the doji and a close deep into the prior white candlestick. This formation would put the brakes on the near-term uptrend for copper.

Copper 6-Month Daily Chart

Reference my last chart analysis for copper.

StockCharts.com has a concise summary of the candlestick patterns.

Evening Doji Star: A three day bearish reversal pattern similar to the Evening Star. The uptrend continues with a large white body. The next day opens higher, trades in a small range, then closes at its open (Doji). The next day closes below the midpoint of the body of the first day.
