Copper is an important market tell for many, so it’s certainly worth noting that the copper poster child FCX is getting going here as it threatens $50. The stock has repeatedly found support in the $46’s in recent months, and in recent weeks has pulled back quietly beneath a descending trend line .

We have yet to know if the market pullback has ended, but if copper proves a leading indicator, this could be a bullish sign to pay attention to.
Here’s a look at FCX, showing both lateral support around $46 as well as today’s attempt to push beyond the descending trend line:
