Metal markets dropped sharply yesterday, with platinum losing 1.5% and silver dropping 3%. This likely sets up the next leg down in the bear market that’s plagued gold, silver, platinum and copper since 2011.
The copper market is of particular interest to Boom & Bust and Cycle 9 Alert subscribers. Both portfolios hold bearish positions in copper that are generating open gains between 20% and 40%.
Based on the two charts I have to share with you today, you’ll see there are bigger gains to come!
First, a chart of copper futures…
Since the first quarter of this year, copper has repeatedly failed to rally above $3.40 per pound (the horizontal red line above).
Following its last attempt in August, a series of lower highs (the descending red line) and higher lows (the ascending blue line) set up a consolidation triangle pattern.
I’ve been waiting for a breakout from this pattern. Yesterday we got it… to the downside! From here copper futures could slide as low as $3 per pound before finding support. That move could take only a few weeks.
Now, here’s a chart of the company we’re betting against in Boom & Bust AND Cycle 9 Alert…
Currently trading between $26 and $27 per share, I see this company falling to $25 over the next week or so. That level – $25 per share – is the line in the sand. I expect it to hold at first, but eventually to break to the downside; unless we see a miraculous turnaround in the entire metals complex. That’s not likely.
There’s very little in the way of support between $25 and $10, so once the bears push this stock below $25, it could fall as low as $10 per share like lightening. That move could provide windfall profits for anyone with bearish positions in this stock.
I’m keeping a close eye on this market, so stay tuned for more updates over the coming weeks.
