2. Hot Market Report: Copper Futures confirm sell signal shared on this newsletter on June 22nd

By Ilan Levy-Mayer

Click on image below to enlarge

High Grade Copper futures; Copper belongs to the "metals family": Gold, Silver, Copper, Platinum, Palladium. All traded on the COMEX exchange.

Current copper fundamentals-
1. Global copper output up 7.1% in first three months of 2018! Output in Chile increased by 19%, mainly because production in 2017 was constrained by a strike at Escondida which is the world’s biggest copper mine.
2. Worries about the impact of a trade war between the US and China, responsible for almost half the world’s consumption of copper and other base metals, is behind the recent pullback.

Daily chart of Copper Futures for your review from this morning ( July 13th 2018). This chart is one of these RARE cases where the signals line up perfectly.
On June 8th we got a red diamond which suggests, "market is oversold" and has a potential to reverse. This was followed on June 15th with a "short term possible trend down" signal marked by the dark red arrow ( circled on the chart). The last signal was the slanted red arrow on June 21st which suggests "longer term" possible down trend developing.
You can see the rest of the story on the chart. Again, as you can see from the left part of the chart, not all signals are that succesful and futures trading is risky but it is sure nice to see when signals trnaslate to market action like in this case.
Copper is "usually" volatile enough and liquid enough to be suitable for both day trading and swing trading.

Some of the basic fundamentals to keep in mind when you are considering trading the Copper for this matter:
1. Research supply side in major copper producing countries like Chile, Peru, China and United States.

3. Focus in macroeconomics not microeconomics
4. Correlation to gold and silver
5. Correlation to US Dollar prices
