Copper is the sole BEGOS Market at present outside (above) today’s Neutral Zone; the red metal continues to be in play, having already traced 146% of its EDTR (see Market ranges); otherwise, session volatility for the other components is light with a bevy of EconData in the day’s balance. Looking at Market Trends we’ve only two with negative linregs: Gold and Oil; until the former clears at least 2385 (the Golden Ratio retracement cited in the current edition of The Gold Update), the recent near-term correction would technically remain in place; Gold at present is 2362 and its EDTR is 35 points. The Econ Baro’s busy day looks to May’s NY State Empire Index, Business Inventories and NAHB Housing Index, plus April’s reads on retail inflation (CPI) and Retail Sales.
