Brian Hunt writes: Commodity traders take note: copper is now in a "compressed" state.
Back in August 2011, we highlighted the compressed state of the euro. This is a situation where an asset's day-to-day volatility gradually dries up and the highs and lows move closer together. These low-volatility periods are often the calm before a storm.
While we don't place much stock in conventional chart-reading at DailyWealth, we've seen compressed situations lead to explosive moves too many times over the years not to watch them closely. We liken a compressed situation to a tightly coiled spring. As we expected, the euro's compression resolved itself... The euro suffered a huge fall just weeks after our note. That brings us to copper...
As you can see from the four-year chart below, the industrial metal has squeezed itself into a state of compression. The metal's day-to-day volatility has dried up. Its highs and lows are getting closer together. Given the force of the "Bernanke Asset Bubble," we expect this situation to be resolved to the upside. A big move is ahead...

The DailyWealth Investment Philosophy: In a nutshell, my investment philosophy is this: Buy things of extraordinary value at a time when nobody else wants them. Then sell when people are willing to pay any price. You see, at DailyWealth, we believe most investors take way too much risk. Our mission is to show you how to avoid risky investments, and how to avoid what the average investor is doing. I believe that you can make a lot of money – and do it safely – by simply doing the opposite of what is most popular.
