The RSI is also falling. and to confirm the full bearish candle and the weak indicators, futures need to breach the 100 DMA. This would trigger losses back towards 14.52 with the 38.2% fib level the secondary level at 14.35. Conversely, the reaffirmation of support at the 100 DMA could trigger some of yesterday's losses to be taken back. In order to regain upside conviction, futures need to close above 15.80.

Our analysts provide an in-depth analysis of the metals market and current macroeconomic conditions. Central Banks are raising rates to curb inflationary pressures and the cost of living crisis in the Euro area and the UK. Economic data and consumer demand are weakening and market sentiment has been impacted accordingly. This, in conjunction with lockdowns in China, has caused demand for metals to soften and shift the Chinese market into surplus, but supply chain logistics have tightened the European market. The easing of lockdowns will boost sentiment and prompt a rally in the near term, but the market is moving into selling rallies as opposed to buying dips.
