SINGAPORE: LME copper is expected to break a support at $6,145 per tonne and fall to the next support at $6,003, as its consolidation in the range of $6,145-$6,375 is ending.
The range is formed by the 23.6 percent and the 38.2 percent retracement of the downtrend from $7,348 to $5,773. A falling trendline from $6,393.50 passing through two lower highs suggests either the formation of a flag or a completion of the uptrend from $5,773. In either case, copper is highly likely to fall to $6,003.
Resistance is at $6,247, the 23.6 percent retracement of the uptrend from $5,773 to $6,393.50, a break above which could lead to a gain to $6,375.
