Copper price four hour chart 23-07-19

Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice Copper's descending course after failing twice since Friday in close above the high-end of the aforementioned trading zone. Therefore, a break below $5,943 may send the price towards the July 12 low at $5,912 however, the July 17 low underlined on the chart needs to be watched closely.

In turn, if Copper breaks above $6,051 this could cause a rally towards $6,123 nonetheless, the high-end of the trading zone highlighted on the chart needs to be kept in focus.
