Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Friday Copper opened with a breakaway gap and fell sharply, printing its lowest levels in near 26 months. Yesterday, the metal continued losing value and moved to the lower trading zone 5,463 – 5,726.

The price may test the high end of this zone. Hence, a close above this level may cause a rally towards 5,792. Further close above it may see the metal even higher towards 5,856. Although, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

On the other hand, a close below 5,617 could press the price toward the low end of current trading zone. However, the weekly support level underscored on the chart should be monitored.
