Key quotes

“Copper (LME) maintains its bullish ‘flag’ continuation pattern, with the rally now at our first upside objective and resistance test at $7254/7348 – the highs of 2017 and 2018 and 50% Fibonacci retracement of the whole 2011/16 downmove. Whilst a pause here should be allowed for, our core outlook stays bullish and we look for a clear and sustained move above $7348 in due course to mark the completion of an even larger base to further reinforce our bullish outlook, with resistance next at the 61.8% retracement at $7947 and eventually we think $8895.”

“Support for a setback is seen at $7020 initially, with $6670 now ideally holding any deeper pullback to keep the broader risk higher.”
