Freeport McMoran Weekly Chart.
The Federal Reserve is meeting this week, and the talk of the town is inflation. Will it raise interest rates to combat rising prices?
One of the focuses of rising prices is commodities? Soft commodities, hard commodities, energy, food – you name it has been up over the past 12 months.
But, things have cooled off a bit of late – just as everyone is yelling “inflation.”
Today, rather than looking at individual commodities, we go straight to a stock chart of one of the most visible miners of hard commodities – Freeport-McMoran & Gold Inc (NYSE:). Perhaps Freeport can provide clues about future inflation and growth prospects.
This chart comes from Marketsmith.com. See the Full article about FCX here.
As you can see, Freeport’s stock rallied nearly 100% inside of a bullish rising trend channel marked by each (1). But it’s stock price has struggled of late, breaking below its up-trend line and attempting to decline through important horizontal support at (2).
This important company (and commodity/inflation indicator) is on the ropes right now. Is this suggesting a cool down for select commodities and perhaps inflation? Stay tuned.
