Coffee spot price weekly chart

A major downtrend for coffee would be an understatement
Major downtrend for the price of coffee over the last three years.

Coffee 3 Year Weekly Chart

The 200-day simple moving average is a good approximation of the major downtrend for coffee. Reference my recent chart analysis for copper for another commodity that has seen better times.

The relatively low spot price for coffee is definitely not reflected in the price of your daily caffeine fix at Tim Hortons.

Canadian dollar candlestick chart

Maybe a bottom for the Canadian dollar at $0.9400

The major trend is down, the intermediate trend is down and the near-term trend is down for the Canadian dollar. It is trading below the 200-day and 50-day simple moving averages. But in all this negativity, there is a glimmer of hope—depends on your perspective—that the bottom is $0.9400. This was a support point back in October, 2011 and the hammer is an indication of a bottom. But never trade the bottom: you know the adage about never trying to catch a falling knife.

Reference the last analysis for the TSX Index and take a look at the performance of the materials sector. Then take a look at the chart for copper. The Canadian dollar can never escape the fact that it is a commodity currency.

Canada has some nice pizza restaurants and great ski hills: it is not all about copper and oil.

Copper is trading below the 200-day and 50-day moving averages. The major trend is down. The intermediate trend is down. The near-term trend is down. And copper could test the major support zone in the above weekly chart.

The TSX Index will not break resistance of 13,500 with the negative implications of this chart on the materials sector.

Copper candlestick chart analysis

Dr. Copper still has a negative prognosis for the world economy

Nothing has changed since I last analyzed copper on June 22, 2013. The major trend is down. The intermediate trend is down. And copper is trading below the 50 day and 200 day moving averages.

What implication does this have for the TSX Index?  The TSX index is currently in a near-term uptrend but there is no way it will break major resistance of 12,900 unless there is an upward movement in copper.
