MCX Lead Weely Report: Above 172 Target 180—188 SL Paid
Copper price is scaling gradually higher after concluding its correction to near $3.4020. The base metal is aiming to capture the crucial resistance of $3.50 as escalating production cuts have soared supply worries. On a broader note, the asset has rebounded firmly after refreshing the monthly low near $3.3600. The rebound still lacks clarity, therefore, the odds of a resumption in the downside journey will remain intact.

Spot gold is testing crucial technical support, a break below which could point to further weakness in coming months. It is attempting to break below key horizontal trendline support at 1,676, coinciding with the 200-week moving average. Although it closed below the support on Thursday, given the significance of the support and the number of times it has been tested since 2021, it might be prudent to wait for two weekly closes below the support before concluding Thursday’s move as a valid break.
