Looking at the daily chart, we notice on August 29 Copper failed to move to a higher trading zone, then reversed course eyeing a test of the low end of current trading zone $5,463 - $5,726.

Hence, a close below the low of the zone end could open the door for more bearishness towards $5,012. However, weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) need to be followed along the way.

In turn, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone may change the price’s direction towards the high end. Further close above the high end could mean more bullishness towards $5.975. Although, the weekly resistance area and levels marked on the chart should be kept in focus.
