Copper looks like dis-inflation (dare I say "deflation") is a real possibility. Global growth is often reflected in this industrial metal used in electronics to building construction. Multiple consolidation price patterns are forming and massive distribution has obviously taken place. This all happening while crude oil has fallen out of bed, global have lagged greatly behind the USA (save India). Target is $2.30 - 2.35 zone depending on velocity. For traders/investors, the question is how long can USA stay elevated before these global forces catch up.
