Copper: Republishing my old forecast and new trade setup

COMEX:HG1!   COPPER FUTURES
Hi, I'd like to repost a private idea I had (I did post it in related ideas in my last retracement long idea for copper             -which actually worked for the 1st entry before a massive turn south-).
We have a clear short opportunity as outlined by my friend Tom Killick (he does great coverage of copper             and USDCLP             , check in related ideas).

If we're offered with a retracement we can take these two entries for a low risk trade:

If not, I'll be forced to operate off the 4h or daily chart and jump on the trend in some other way...There's always a good excuse to join a trend, and if you don't have many, you will miss out on the best trades (many times they never come back to you once they leave the station).

Cheers,
Ivan Labrie.
Comment: Some correlated markets:

USDCNH is in an 11 month downtrend, and has already exceeded the projected range twice...
There's no sign of it stopping any time soon, nor copper, and it's clear that the Shanghai index will follow suit.

Comment: En route. No way to enter without using lower timeframes though.

Trail stop to entry and hold!
Trade closed manually: I reccomend covering the shorts for now.
Dr Copper is always interesting! Or perhaps rather "always should be...."
It's hard to imagine a rising business cycle for the world economy without the price of copper also rising. Copper is often called Dr Copper because it's regarded as a dependable leading indicator for the business cycle

Is it time to short copper again? It may go down to your targets with all other commodities (time to short gold and silver).

I mean, the chart is vital for the specifics of trading, but fundamental analysis and knowledge will aid you in finding or discarding trades.

It's always important to see and understand "the big picture" as to why the metals and commodity related contracts are doing what they are doing.Alasdair Macleod via GoldMoney.com gives you his economic fundamental perspective.The economic analysis was on Zero Hedge.IMO,you won't hear any of this type of economic analysis from any Central Bank or Government:

Thanks for the link.
I do think we'll see a bit more rallying in gold, but not a full fledged bull market like this article implies.
This can last a long time, and still see continuos declines in gold and copper.
I trade what I see, here and now, and can predict to a certain extent. Looking further into the future isn't the realm of trading but of analysis and forecasting (neither which produce money by themselves).
