Keep A Close Eye On Copper Prices

Bookmark and Share

Copper Futures---Copper futures in the December contract are trading lower for the 3rd consecutive day blamed on profit-taking after the recent run-up in prices as I remain bullish & I do think higher prices are ahead, however I'm not involved, but I'm certainly not recommending any type of short position.

If you are long a futures contract place the stop loss as an exit strategy below the 10 day low standing at 3.0120 which is quite a distance away, but that will start to improve on a daily basis next week therefore lowering the monetary risk as the chart structure will start to improve which is the basis of my trading strategy.

Copper prices are trading far above their 20 & 100 day moving average as this trend is very strong as the housing market in the U.S has caught fire due to the fact that we are also rebuilding massive communities in the southern part of the United States & Puerto Rico as I still see higher prices so continue to play this to the upside while taking advantage of any price retracement to enter into a new position as this is one of the strongest trends in 2017.

Copper prices are also riding the coattails of the stock market which I'm very bullish and if you take a look at the lumber chart that's also at contract highs as these markets have very strong physical demand at the present time as I don't think that will stop anytime soon.TREND: HIGHER---CHART STRUCTURE: POOR
