Copper 3-year chart showing resistance $2.30.

Copper 3-Year Weekly Chart

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.

I published this daily candlestick chart for IBB to highlight a couple of principles in technical analysis. First, the reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis. The $270 resistance point is now support. Second, a retest of the breakout point is common before the stock resumes the near-term uptrend. But, these are guidelines. Everything in technical analysis is about probabilities. A break below support of $270 would change the whole technical picture.
