Commodities outlook: can gold, oil and metals stay bullish in 2021?

Posted on December 24, 2020 at 2:46 pm GMT

It’s been an incredible year for commodities as the global pandemic has induced some historic moves in the prices of key commodities such as gold and oil. Growth commodities like oil and industrial metals, whose fortunes are more directly tied to economic performance, have rallied hard since March when markets were flooded with stimulus and look set to finish 2020 on a positive note. The safe-haven gold, which had been on the rise long before the pandemic, has not been [..]

Technical Analysis – Copper futures retrace below cloud; bullish bias persists

Posted on October 27, 2020 at 3:58 pm GMT

Copper futures’ recent pullback from the 28-month high of 3.213 appears to have been muted by the 100-period simple moving average (SMA) around 3.068. The retreat slipped under the 50-period SMA at 3.113 and the Ichimoku cloud, where the price seems to have slowed its downward pace. The falling red Tenkan-sen line suggests strengthening negative momentum, while the flattening blue Kijun-sen line is conveying a stalling in the withdrawal from the recent peak. The short-term oscillators reflect the slight improvement [..]

Technical Analysis – Copper futures’ uptrend intact; positive backing present

Posted on August 27, 2020 at 2:47 pm GMT

Copper futures maintain a steady bullish bearing after a bounce on the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), which sent the commodity to a 25-Month peak of 3.040. The rising red Tenkan-sen line is promoting additional advances, while the bullish crossover of the 200-day SMA by the 100-day one may further boost the predominant positive picture. The short-term oscillators also endorse an improving outcome. The MACD and the stochastic oscillator suggest positive momentum is increasing despite the pause displayed in the [..]

Posted on June 11, 2020 at 2:48 pm GMT

Copper futures retreated slightly from their freshly plotted four-and-a-half month high of 2.6959.

The short-term oscillators are positively tilted in spite of the current weakening in positive momentum. The MACD, deep in the positive region, is waning above its red signal line, while the RSI has dropped [..]

Technical Analysis – Copper futures bullish correction under strain

Posted on May 4, 2020 at 3:19 pm GMT

Copper futures’ correction seems to be faltering below the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) and under the 2.3175 level – that being the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the down leg from 2.8819 to 1.9684 – as it edges in the Ichimoku cloud. The Ichimoku lines support the bullish run as does the MACD, which is for now, just above its red trigger and zero line. That said, the RSI, just below its neutral threshold, and the falling stochastics back a [..]

Technical Analysis – Copper futures maintain negative outlook despite pullback

Posted on April 15, 2020 at 2:45 pm GMT

Copper futures’ bullish correction from the 45-month low of 1.9684 appears to have lost steam as it approaches the restrictive trend line drawn from the 8½-month peak of 2.8819. Further suggesting that positive momentum is wavering is the RSI that has dipped back below its neutral 50 mark and the stochastic lines, which have reversed ahead of the 80 overbought border. While the MACD, in the negative section, continues to move above its red trigger line suggesting that the price [..]

Technical Analysis – Copper futures plunge lower to a multi-year low

Posted on March 16, 2020 at 4:31 pm GMT

Copper futures plunged to a fourty-month low of 2.6204 today before buyers resurfaced. The correction in the price was also reflected in the bounce of the RSI on the 30 oversold mark and the recent turn up in the Stochastic blue %K line towards its red % D line just beneath the 20 level. That said, the MACD is declining below its red trigger line in the negative zone and the simple moving averages (SMAs) still display a negative picture [..]
