After selling off this summer, copper has been consolidating over the last couple months and appears to be forming a wedge-type pattern that may indicate another strong move when the metal breaks out from it one way or another. Copper has a reputation for leading the global economy and is known as “the metal with a PhD in economics.” As our Chief Investment Strategist Lance Roberts recently showed, there is a rising risk of a recession, and the financial markets may be starting to price this in.

If copper breaks down from its most recent wedge pattern, it would be a worrisome sign for the global economy. The next price target and support level to watch is the $2.5 per pound support level that came into play over the last couple years.
