Copper Bounce: Dead Cat or Fall Breakdown?

Copper crashed decisively to the downside of long-term support a few weeks ago.  It broke under a pennant pattern, then below the neckline of a 4-year Head-and-Shoulders pattern.  FCX, unsurprisingly, has a similar-looking chart pattern.  Both copper and FCX have rallied over the last week or two.  Both have rallied back to short-term trendline resistance.  It will be interesting to see how they react from here, as I think these two cats might provide a more accurate “growth expectation” reading than equities more broadly.

As a bonus, how about the resistance Nasdaq (QQQ) is facing?  That might be meaningful.
