Copper made an initial break below its 50 day Simple Moving Average at $4.06, a possible indication of a forthcoming negative trend. Having stamped out a session range of $4.03 to $4.09, Fibonacci-inclined Copper traders were highly concentrated around active Fibonacci support at $4.07. CME Copper's upper Bollinger Band® is at $4.15 which indicates a further downward move may follow. On the other hand, note that Copper could begin to recover as it approaches significant support, now 1 cents away from $4.06. Dipping below could be an indication that further losses are ahead.
Following today's unexpected losses, extensive multifactorial technical analysis forecasts the Copper future to buck against its prevailing uptrend and begin to dip lower in the short term. With all probabilities considered, the CME Copper is expected to attract significant bearish sentiment in the coming days.
