The price of copper underpins the recent rally in mining stocks. Copper is also a proxy for the overall view on the the direction of the world economy: particularly the view on China. Copper has an inverse relationship with the U.S. dollar but in the end it is the perceived supply and demand balance that determines the price for copper.

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.
