Copper Prices Trend Back Towards Support

Copper Prices Trend Back Towards Support

Walker England, Forex Trading Instructor

Talking Points:

Copper prices have significantly declined after being rejected from a new 2016 high of $2.7333 per pound last week. With today’s trading being considered (-1.63%), Copper price are now set to close lower for the fourth consecutive session. What makes this move significant, is that the market is now trading back below $2.4930 which was previously marked as acting support and is now resistance for the commodity. If prices remain below this point, it may suggest that Copper is finally turning back in the direction of its multiyear downtrend.

Traders looking for short term technical cues for a turn in Copper prices should continue to monitor the 10 period EMA (Exponential Moving Average). Copper has closed over this average for the preceding 16 periods, after the commodity first crossed the average on October 25th. Currently the average is sitting at $2.4186, and a move below this value would again suggest that the trend is shifting lower.

In the event that Copper remains supported near present levels, bullish traders will first look for the metal to trade back above the previously mentioned value of resistance at f $2.4390. Next, the metal will need to continue to advance towards higher highs to suggest a significant resumption of its prior short term uptrend. Key values of resistance include $2.5811 and $2.6321. Both of these areas must be overcome to add validation of any bull trend, but the commodity will ultimately need to create a higher high above the standing high at $2.7333.
