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.
