Copper Technical Analysis – The bearish momentum has waned


Copper has bounced on a key support recently and extended the gains this
week following the Chinese
Caixin Manufacturing PMI
as the survey hit the highest level since May
2021. In the last few weeks, the bearish momentum indeed appeared to be slowing
as the lower lows became shallower.

All else being equal, if we continue to see the pickup in global growth, we
could see new highs in the coming months. Indeed, more policy support from the
Chinese officials would give the market a stronger boost.

Analysis – Daily Timeframe

On the daily chart, we can
see that copper eventually bounced on the key 4.35 support where we had also the 50% Fibonacci retracement level for confluence.

high. Technically, a break above it should change the bias from bearish to

position for a drop back into the 4.35 support targeting a break below it.

Analysis – 1 hour Timeframe

defining the current bullish momentum. From a risk management perspective, the
buyers will have a better risk to reward setup around the trendline where they
will also find the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level for confluence.

hand, will want to see the price breaking lower to pile in and target a drop
below the key 4.35 support zone. The red lines define the average daily range for today.
