Paging Dr. Copper

1 month ago I was looking for Copper to possibly break the nice symmetrical triangle it had formed over the past few years. And this is exactly what happened. Copper broke below that trendline which triggered a sell-off (along with some negative $MACRO data-points). Now, a month later, copper is hitting 1.5 year lows. Does it have more room to run or is it the end of this sell-off?
After breaking below the triangle, copper sold off on heavy volume. However, the sell-off has stalled in this $3.00-3.10 area. While most things on this chart scream ‘bearish’, the RSI is indicating “oversold” conditions. Not that I do not think it can’t go lower, but if I had a position on, I think it’d be prudent to take off at least half near this support. A break below 3.00 would trigger the next leg down to the ~2.75 area (2010 low).
Paging Dr. Copper….the patient looks sick.
