Copper prices moved decisively above the short-term down trend line. Given the recent amount of work against the uptrend line,  (Jan-May 18) strong breakouts should be respected. Copper prices look poised to begin their next upleg to the top of the channel. Note the scale on the chart ends at $3.30. The extended portion of the chart lacks a common price scale. However, a return to the top of the channel would put prices at $4.00.
