The instrument is retesting the horizontal resistance1225 level just 10$ below 100 SMA. Watching the price action here for rejection and a possible short entry. Only above 1233 we could see a test of the key 1269 level.



Silver is above 17.50 key medium-term resistance. If it can hold above this level then it could retest key long term level 18.00. Rejection from this 17.50-18 zone would be crucial for downside reversal. Staying aside for now.


Has reached strong upside resistance 52-54 zone and we expect rejection here for a sideways price action between 45-50 in the coming days and weeks. SL on shorts here should be above 55. No change in view.


Natural has is rejected from a broken wedge line and look only for short trades here for now. Falling trend line and 3.500 level are strong downside support and we got a rejection from this level for downside continuation targeting 3.000. Invalidation of the medium-term downtrend only on a break above 3.700.



Is forming a flag below 200 SMA 452 level. It needs a break below 400 for downside continuation. Looking only for shorts here for now with SL above 450 targeting 391 and 363. No change in view the instrument is again testing upper side of the flag and is near the 200 SMA.



Cotton longs have reached their first target which is also the strong upside resistance. Look for longs as long as 71.80 level holds and move the SL on longs to break even. Fresh longs only on a break above 75.35. Longs have played out and reached 100% extension where we could see a pullback.


Long term view published HERE. Major triangle break and we see this as long trading opportunity SL should be below 214 targeting 280 and higher. Target zone 270-280 has been hit and we could see little hesitation around weekly 200 SMA  277 level. We have a rejection from 260-270 zone and copper could be in a 230-260 range. No change in view.


Commodities rising with stock indices and we are bullish on most of them except gold, silver, and energies for now.
