Doji Star appears on the daily chart for copper

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.

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.

Doji Star appears on the daily chart for Teck Resources

The doji star is a potent warning when it appears after a sustained uptrend. It is a yellow light indicating caution. And it is close to the 10.00 resistance zone. A gap down on Monday that closes deep into the two prior white candlesticks would complete the evening doji star pattern. If the stock advances on Monday towards the 12.00 resistance zone, the doji star is nullified. Monitor the price action and trade accordingly

Reference: A view of the weekly chart for Teck Resources showing the major downtrend but an intermediate and near-term uptrend with the $10.00 resistance zone.

On the plus side:  Copper continues to breakout in a near-term uptrend which bodes well for Teck Resources.
