  • Copper extends recovery from monthly low, on the bids recently.
  • Bullish candlestick directs the run-up towards short-term SMA hudle.
  • Ascending trend line from early February offers strong support.

Copper stays well bid for the second consecutive day, up 1.03% near $4.5780 during early Tuesday.

The red metal’s U-turn from May 03 low portrays a bullish hammer the previous day. The same joins a receding bearish bias of the MACD to direct the commodity buyers towards 21-day SMA near $4.6000.

It should, however, be noted that any further upside past $4.6000 will have to cross May 14 low near $4.6090, also rise past $4.6100 round figure, to attack the two-week-old resistance line near $4.7000.

Meanwhile, pullback moves can target the monthly low near $4.4370 before highlighting a multi-day-old support line near $4.3100.

Though, a daily close below $4.3100 will make the quote vulnerable to retest the mid-March tops surrounding $4.1900.

Overall, copper remains on the front foot but short-term hurdles could test the buyers.
