I watch everything. I especially do a lot of intermarket work to tell me the driving forces behind market moves. One of the most important linchpins for the market has been the direction of copper prices. It has been an excellent gauge of what the market thinks and potentially on the economy. It has been a good indicator both up and down. Today, COPPER is on the verge of jumping above important resistance. All other commodities are very strong today. In recent days, the market has held long term moving averages like a trooper, leading to nice upside this week. This move in COPPER may be another piece to the puzzle. Of course, the move must stick. I am just happy to see the move occurring. Could be another notch in the market’s belt.
