Inverted Head-and-Shourlders Pattern on Copper 4-Hour Chart

August 20, 2012 at 13:57 by Vladimir Vyun

The inverted head-and-shoulders pattern has formed on the 4-hour chart of copper, giving bulls hope that the industrial metal is ready to start a rally. The metal was falling since April, stopped the decline in June and since then it was trading in a wide range. Perhaps, copper is ready to go higher on the back of improving outlook for the global economy?

The yellow lines mark the “shoulders” of the chart. A breakout would occur if the price goes above the neckline (the top yellow line). Traders should not jump in immediately in case of a breakout and should wait till the pattern is confirmed. If the price reaches the level marked by the cyan line, that would a time to enter a long position with the objective at the level shown by the green line.
