The indicators are falling back into oversold territory, the MACD is negative and lacks conviction. To confirm the rejection of prices at 10.80, prices need to break 10, the 138.2% fib level at 9.51 is secondary. On the upside, futures if prices can gain a footing above 10.80 and then 11 to improve the outlook on the upside.

This secondary support stands at 310 before the robust level of 300. On the upside, a breach of 332.76 and the 50% fib level would prompt prices to regain some momentum on the upside.

Quarterly Metals Report – Q4 2021

The global macro picture is starting to present some downside risks in the near term as China's economy is set to slow further and supply-chain bottlenecks continue to cap growth. New orders and new export orders in China are contractionary, and we expect demand in Q4. Order backlogs and lead times for products will continue in Q4, limiting growth, and real consumption is weaker than it looks. Higher costs from shipping, raw materials and energy will take their toll on the consumer, and we expect end-user demand to suffer. The final piece of the jigsaw is the reduction in stimulus from central banks and how that will impact financial markets, bond yields, and the dollar has rallied while stocks corrected, but what will this trend continue?
