The market sentiment of industrial metals is positive on the stimulus package from different countries. Recently, European Union leaders reached an agreement on a EUR750 billion stimulus package. Besides, the U.S. president Donald Trump also said the second stimulus package would come.

The industrial metals sharply rebounded from March low. Let's take a look on copper, palladium and platinum.


Copper Futures: Bullish bias remains


The Copper futures, as shown on the daily chart, remains holding on the upside after soaring around 38% from March low.

Currently, the prices stay above the rising 20-day moving average. It would suggest the bullish outlook for the prices.

However, the relative strength index breaks down the overbought level at 70, which would indicate that the prices may enter a phase of consolidation.

As long as the support level at $2.78 (the 50% retracement of recent upmove) is not broken, the technical outlook of copper futures remains bullish. The resistance levels would be located at $3.00 and $3.20.

In an alternative scenario, a break below $2.78 would trigger a deeper pullback to $2.70 (the high of June 10).
