Copper – Trendless Move

At the start of August, Copper (HG) resumed bearish price action then declined to $5,642 – its lowest level in over 25 months. The metal corrected last week higher creating a higher low at $5,709 then stuck in a sideways move.

Alongside this, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pointed higher from the boarders of the oversold territory, nonetheless, the oscillator has not been able to cross over 50, highlighting the buyer’s lack of momentum to start upward move, with the weakness of sellers to send the price lower.

On the other hand, a close below the low end could press the price lower towards $5,617 however, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart need be followed closely. Further close below $5,617 could see the price trading even lower towards $5,463.
