Copper price rebound: Doc’s technical reality

The copper price continues to bounce within its daily chart downtrend

Markets cycle slowly. Charts evolve slowly.

The chart of the copper price shows a ‘double bottom’ bounce taking place, conveniently right smack dab in the midst of traditional party season (cue Wayne, Garth, algos, black boxes and millions of casino patrons with a TeeVee cartoon out front cheerleading).

Doctor Copper is again eyeballing the downtrending SMA 200. There’s been a lot of ‘China restocking’ stuff in the media and in the copper/commodity/inflation pump-o-sphere, but as yet the copper price has not made a decision between maintaining the existing (down) trend or busting it.

My wager? That the copper price dings $3/lb. in 2023 and if a global recession ensues, lower than that.
