Copper (HG) Analysis with the Market Profile

The following article provides an analysis of the copper futures market based on the recent price developments. The analysis considers tools such as the volume profile and market profile.


End of March the copper market made a significant short push representing substantial uncertainty in the market. The market stabilised and built a range (1) which was left on the downside but got immediately recovered (2) illustrating buyer strength. The coming weeks, the market performed a breakout above that range but tested it again, however, was rejected (3) and confirmed the buyers strength.

During the previous week, the market created a strong range (4) which was left on the short side. Having a generally short context buyers gained strength beginning of the week and pushed the market through the entire range (5) forcing sellers to close their positions which resulted in a strong long trend. The market finished this week close to the week's high.
