Short term trends continue to fl atten out as prices settle into fresh consolidation patterns.

 

Copper

While medium to longer term downtrends are undisturbed, shorter term trends now look to be flattening out as recent heavy losses continue to be digested through a combination of correction and reconsolidation. Expect immediate rally attempts to again meet strong overhead resistance starting in the 4,960/80 area and while a decisive break above here could extend near term gains closer to the 5,180/5,200 zone, this recovery phase still appears unsustainable and prices remain vulnerable to renewed bouts of weakness in the

days ahead. Local support is visible at initially 4,730/50 then again towards the

4,600/20 region. 

Trading strategy: Monitoring current corrective phase for opportunity to re-establish shorts.

 

Aluminium

Intermediate to longer term trends are still pointed down with little evidence of a bottom to this major downward cycle as yet. Believe prices could head towards a test of the historically important 1,430/50 region in the weeks ahead and while interim support should be uncovered in and around 1,470/80, immediate recovery attempts should be restricted to potentially sharp but probably short lived corrective bounces only for the time being. Strong overhead resistance should be encountered starting in the 1,550/60 area, which needs to be regained to extend near term gains and set up a challenge of the 1,630/40 region.

Trading strategy: Awaiting corrective action ahead of reestablishing short positions.

 

Zinc

While the medium to longer term technical outlook remains decisively bearish with lower targets anticipated in the weeks ahead, interim objectives in and around the 1,760/70 area have been fulfilled with a fresh period of correction/reconsolidation currently being experienced. However, immediate recovery attempts are likely to be restricted by strong overhead resistance extending up to the 1,930/40 area with only a clear and sustained break above here capable of relieving the prevailing downward pressure and extending gains closer to 2,050/70 where better supply should then be uncovered.

Trading strategy: Monitoring current corrective phase for opportunity to re-establish shorts.

 

Lead

While the medium to longer term bearish outlook is undisturbed with prices expected to trend lower in the weeks ahead, interim downside objectives have been fulfilled with much needed corrective and reconsolidative action is currently being experienced. However, immediate recovery attempts are likely to be restricted by strong resistances waiting at initially 1,750/60 then 1,810/20 and in the absence of any basing activity this market remains vulnerable to renewed bouts of weakness in the days and weeks ahead. Local supports are now visible starting at 1,630/40 then again towards the key 1,570/80 region.

Trading strategy: Continuing to utilise corrective rebounds to probe the short side.

 

Nickel

Medium to longer term downtrends remain firmly intact and while prices have almost achieved interim downside objectives of 10,500/10,600, immediate recovery attempts are likely to be restricted to unsustainable corrective bounces only for the time being. Overhead resistance should be encountered starting in the 11,600/11,700 area with a decisive market close above here needed to trigger more serious near term gains and set up a challenge of the 12,200/12,300 region where better supply should then be stimulated. Note: A close beneath 10,500 would confirm next targets around 10,000.

Trading strategy: With profits on shorts secured will await next signal prior to re-establishing.

 

Tin

While overall technical studies remain decisively bearish with little evidence of a bottom to this major downward cycle as yet, prices look to have uncovered good support on approach to the historically important 13,000/13,100 area with much needed corrective action currently being experienced. However, while this recovery attempt could challenge the 14,900/15,000 area ahead of meeting too much overhead resistance, gains are likely to prove both unsustainable and short lived with this market still vulnerable to further bouts of weakness in the days and weeks ahead.

Trading strategy: With profits on shorts secured will await next correction ahead of re-establishing.

 

Gold

The medium term technical outlook has clearly deteriorated with preliminary indications suggesting the past week’s strong corrective rebound to have now run its course. Prices once more appear vulnerable to renewed bouts of weakness with local support which waits in the 1,555.0/60.0 area likely to come under renewed examination. A clear and sustained break beneath here would put this market under more serious downward pressure and set up a challenge of the 1,500.0/05.0 region ahead of better demand being stimulated. Resistances remain in place starting at 1,640.0/45.0 then again towards 1,700.0/05.0.

Trading strategy: Probing short side once again as correction looks complete looking for 1,500.0 region.

 

Silver

While the overall technical outlook remains clearly bearish with lower targets still readable in the weeks ahead, interim objectives in and around the 11.20/40 area have been fulfilled with sharp corrective action currently being experienced. However, this appears poorly based and hence unlikely to prove sustainable at this stage with strong overhead resistances waiting at initially 14.60/80 then on approach to the 16.00/20 zone. Unless this upper boundary can be regained prices remain vulnerable to renewed bouts of weakness with a retest of 11.20/40 and even 10.00/20 readable.

Trading strategy: Utilising potentially sharp corrective bounces to probe the short side looking for 10.00 region.
