What’s Up, What’s Down: Copper on an Uptrend

Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Friday’s Price Action


Lower closes last Friday for copper, gold, silver and platinum. I thought copper has put in a near term top but with its BULL TRIANGLE in place, it should continue higher overall. Gold, silver and platinum also sold off sharply but didn’t rally off their lows to close better than it looked like they would. Silver is also in a BEAR PENNANT. All are in long-term up-trends but are still showing toppy action at this time.
