The major trend is down, the intermediate trend is sideways and the near-term trend is up. I am focusing on the near-term trend (last three weeks) in this analysis. The near-term trend is up and the resistance zone is identified on the above chart. A break above the resistance zone would indicate a target of $3.80. The price of copper is a good proxy for the growth in the world economy:in particular for China. A breakout above the resistance zone would bode well for the TSX Index which has a relatively large weighting in base metal stocks. A failure for copper to breakout above the resistance zone would indicate that the TSX Index will not breakout above the 13,500 resistance level.

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.

Nice pop on Friday but there has to be follow-through next week. The intermediate trend is still down and the 20-day simple moving average is a good approximation of the intermediate downtrend.

Copper candlestick chart analysis

Hammer on the chart today is a reversal pattern
A hammer appeared on the daily chart for copper. A hammer is a reversal pattern.

Copper Daily Candlestick Chart

The hammer on today’s chart is a reversal pattern. This is an indicator that the intermediate downtrend will end. It does not mean that copper will suddenly reverse direction: it could ease into a consolidation zone. The price action today is reflected in the hammer. Copper opened at $3.18 and then traded down to $3.06 which was close to major support at $3.00. It then closed at $3.20.
