Copper has been one of the strongest commodities in 2024 year-to-date, rising over 32% so far and poised for more gains before the first half of the year concludes. The bullish cycle started in July 2022 but experienced a rough patch in 2023 before resuming its upward trend in 2024.

Copper's long-term Elliott wave structure can be traced back to pre-2000 when a diagonal structure began to emerge. In March 2020, the cycle degree fourth wave of the diagonal, wave IV, concluded below $2. Since then, prices have moved upwards in a 3-swing structure to complete wave V, subdivided into blue waves A, B, and C. Blue wave A ended above 5.04 in March 2022 with an impulse wave structure. Subsequently, blue wave B formed and concluded in August 2022 at 3.23 with a zigzag structure.

Since August 2022, blue wave C has emerged and is expected to complete an impulse, subdivided into waves (1), (2), (3), (4), and (5). Waves (1) and (2) have already concluded, and the price is now in wave (3), which started at 3.52 in October 2023. Currently, the price is in wave 3 of (3). This analysis indicates that blue wave C still has some way to go before completion.

On the H4 chart, we can observe the progress of wave 3 of (3). The price is currently in wave (v) of blue wave iii of 3, indicating that wave 3 is nearing completion. An extension to the Fibonacci zone of 5.266-5.538 is likely, and wave 4 could potentially start from there. The copper price action favors buyers who are looking to buy after dips.
