COPPER Weekly Chart; Sideways Symmetrical Triangle Breakout

Copper price is running parabolic. The 3-week rally is from 2.08 to the high at 2.73, a huge +31% gain. Last week was up +11% and up about +20% at that intraweek high. Investors are in a tizzy that Trump will spend billions on infrastructure so folks are playing copper as a winner. Interestingly, however, global copper supplies remain robust and the auto and housing sectors (the two top users of copper) remain sluggish.

The blue sideways symmetrical triangle was in play all this year and price breaks out to the upside from 2.18. The vertical side is about 0.47 (2.40-1.93) so 2.65 is the target (2.18+0.47) and price already tagged this level satisfying the pattern. Price filled the gap at 2.62. 

The upper band is violated so a move back to the middle band at 2.18, and rising, is on the table. Price may remain sticky in the 2.55-2.75 range for this month. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only. Do not invest based on anything you read or view here.
