Featured Copper Idea From TradingView

Below is a trading comment entitled 🌐 MORNING MEETING – MARKET PREVIEW – JULY 07 you may find interesting:

🔴 GLOBAL STOCK MARKETS Good morning traders. After yesterday’s slight shifts towards risk-off (USD firmer and risk currencies softer), Asian markets closed mixed with Shanghai and Australia posting gains, but Nikkei and Hang Seng in the red. European markets recovered some ground after yesterday’s sell off and trade in the green, with the DAX taking the leading position (+0.81% so far). https://www.tradingview.com/x/cQq0o9So/ 🔴 USD INDEXThe USDx has enjoyed a strong Tuesday but entered into a consolidation phase this morning ahead of the FOMC Meeting Minutes (released at 8:00 PM CET this evening).Yields are softer, which could pose a risk for USD bulls during the day. The positive correlation between the USDx and 2-year yields is still broken (USD higher despite lower yields.) https://www.tradingview.com/x/mKIT8kA0/ 🔴 CO…
