Doctor Copper, Old Man Gold and a deterioration of inflated markets

The copper price is tanking, and not just nominally As the upcoming FOMC is forced by market signals to keep its hawk suit on (as of today 54% of CME traders now expect a 1% rate hike with the remaining 46% in the .75% camp), global financial markets are bending to the pressure of Fed policy. The daily chart of copper futures is eyeballing the … Continue reading Doctor Copper, Old Man Gold and a deterioration of inflated markets

Copper hits ’round number’ support at $3/lb. [w/ edit, ref. incorrect title]

[Edit] You write millions of words over a couple decades and you’re going to screw up once in a while. Copper did not hit 3, it hit 3.30. I noted that support incorrectly on the chart. Copper price hammers at support Well, here it is. The target noted in this post last week, 3 bucks/lb. and the 2018 high, is in. Now what? Well, the … Continue reading Copper hits ’round number’ support at $3/lb. [w/ edit, ref. incorrect title]

Just another Cu & Cu/Au post

Copper and Copper/Gold continue the dark messaging These things take longer than you’d think when you initiate the analysis at its start. It was about a year ago that I began watching for negative divergences to the inflation that even then was front page news. Then economic Doctor Copper embarked on a forever sideways journey of ups and downs before finally breaking down for real … Continue reading Just another Cu & Cu/Au post

Doctor Copper: Oversold bounce

It’s an oversold bounce for the copper price, the Copper/Gold ratio and likely other commodities The daily copper price (futures) is showing a logical bounce from a small support shelf and a deeply oversold condition (RSI). The Copper/Gold ratio, one of our primary economic signalers, is showing the same. Of course, anything can happen. But on the face of it this chart advises the potential … Continue reading Doctor Copper: Oversold bounce

Doctor Copper’s prescription enclosed…

Doctor Copper’s scrip: “The economy is starting to gear down due to the reduction of the very cyclical inflationary forces that had stimulated the patient previously. If you feel a sudden loss of balance, as if a carpet were being pulled out from under your feet that will be the inflation trades you’ve stood resolutely upon continuing from a normal correction to an erosion of … Continue reading Doctor Copper’s prescription enclosed…

Copper and the Copper/Gold ratio

Copper price (futures) clings to intact status Doctor Copper obviously failed again after a brief head fake above the moving averages. Doc is the cyclical economic metal. It clings to its laborious sideways trend of the last year. The Copper/Gold ratio (i.e. the cyclical doctor vs. the counter-cyclical metal) also labors sideways, but with a slightly negative trend. Considering that gold is having troubles of … Continue reading Copper and the Copper/Gold ratio

Copper/Gold ratio failure continues

Cyclical copper is now signaling full on danger in its relation to gold The lowest low since February 2021 is being struck by the Copper/Gold ratio. And here’s the companion big picture macro chart for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure if you cling to the cyclical inflation view).

Copper, copper miners and the Gold/Silver ratio

Copper and copper miners breaking bad I looked at FCX and thought about buying it as it got dropped to a higher low at the SMA 200. Today it has dropped below it (still a higher low to January’s low). I’d be interested, except that the Copper Miners ETF looks even more suspect and the good Doctor himself is threatening a breakdown… DESPITE booming jobs, … Continue reading Copper, copper miners and the Gold/Silver ratio

Doctor Copper: Finally the breakdown?

As the Copper price finally makes a move that could lead to implosion (this time?) It’s a hard break below the SMA 200 and maybe this time the good doctor will prescribe a counter-cycle. Not so curiously, gold is getting blown up this morning (not quite yet to our downside targets) but oh wait, look at the old monetary man vs. the inflated economic doctor. … Continue reading Doctor Copper: Finally the breakdown?

Copper/Gold ratio continues to be macro unfriendly

Cu/Au bent but not quite broken Wallowing below the moving averages, the Copper/Gold ratio is vulnerable. It’s a vulnerability that has been in play before to no damaging effect to the cyclical inflation trades. But these things take forever (and a day) compared to our flitting brain waves firing off signals in real time. Once again, the ‘reminder’ chart about the big picture macro. The … Continue reading Copper/Gold ratio continues to be macro unfriendly

A friendly reminder from Dr. Copper & old man Gold

Copper/Gold ratio is still sideways The decision by this discrete indicator (remember, it’s a group of indicators we want to see indicating similar outcomes for any given macro backdrop) has not been logged yet. The copper price is pulling back vs. the gold price but the ratio is still in its long sideways trend. This will not last and when it finally breaks out, up … Continue reading A friendly reminder from Dr. Copper & old man Gold

Doctor Cyclical vs. Old Man Counter-cyclical

Copper/Gold ratio has been weak, but… The “but” being that this level of weakness has occurred on two other occasions before the ratio of the copper price to the gold price recovered. It has been more than a year now that this indicator, not to mention several of its fellows, has refused to trigger a macro view.* And again, the big picture view… * I … Continue reading Doctor Cyclical vs. Old Man Counter-cyclical

Doctor Copper among pre-market’s harsh reversals

Copper spike and reversal As gold hits our short-term target (short-term, longer-term is much higher), Nickel goes limit up and other items went bonkers in pre-market, the good doctor is doing failure #4. It is still technically bullish, but the failure is in not yet taking a next leg. Like Nickel, for example. It’s getting dangerous out there, folks. More and more my general default … Continue reading Doctor Copper among pre-market’s harsh reversals
