Copper Price action can cause sharp momentum moves in coming days

But it’s a directional Range, which is more suitable for mean reversion or Range trading. The swings on both sides are evidential activity of Buying and selling pressure. Both bulls and bears are fighting it out to determine control over price behavior and Market sentiment.

From Feb 2018 onwards, Price action become even more volatile, unstable because of Chinese Holidays and decline in Chinese market participation rate (because of Chinese New year).
