Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Tuesday, Copper fell to a lower trading zone $5,726 - $5,856. Today, the metal opened with a gap to the downside then rebounded nearby the low end of the zone.

Hence, a close below the low end of the zone could see Copper trading even lower towards $5,463. Although, sellers would need to pay a close attention to the weekly support area and levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in).

That said, any failure to close below the low end of the zone could reverse the price direction sending it higher towards the high end. Further close above the high end may push Copper towards the vicinity of $5,975-79. However, the weekly resistance area and level marked on the chart should be watched closely.
