On the weekly chart the rally since February 2020 has been very strong in the form of wave 5 which can be the largest wave in the commodity markets. The rise is impulsive and as we have not yet seen any significant correction yet, it means that this wave is sub-dividing into impulse pattern. The low is formed on the cycle day as well.

On the hourly chart wave ii of wave 5(blue) seems to be on going .Price is testing the support zone of the 200 hour EMA and the channel support. A break above 530 levels can indicate that wave ii is in place and wave iii has started on the upside which can take price towards the upper trend line of the channel.
In a nutshell, MCX Copper can start to move towards 525 – 530 levels over the short term as long as …. support levels hold intact. The medium term bias continues to remain bullish.
