Chart analysis of Copper: The near-term trend is down

There is a tentative break of the intermediate support level
The near-term trend for copper is down and the intermediate trend is sideways.  There is a tentative break of the $3.70 support level.

One Year Copper Chart

The intermediate trend for copper is sideways and the near-term trend is down. There was a tentative break of the $3.70 support level. In this case, I am using a 3% filter to confirm the break so I am looking for a close of $3.59 to move from tentative to confirmed.

Copper chart analysis: A visit to the doctor

Copper trading in an intermediate lateral band

One Year Copper Chart

Always make regular visits to Dr. Copper for his opinion on the overall health of the world economy. Right now, the Doctor is still evaluating the relatively negative economic data out of China. Maybe the upcoming earnings season will shed some extra light on the demand for base metals in China. Economic reports can be misleading but the top line of a company cannot be easily manipulated.

I have set my alerts as per the above chart and a breakout to the upside or downside will be a major signal for the resource based economies: Canada, Australia, Brazil and Russia.

Reference the last chart analysis for copper: still in the same lateral trading band.
