Zinc futures bearish below ₹340

The continuous zinc futures on the MCX (Multi Commodity Exchange), which has been rallying since mid-July, faced resistance at ₹340 and has fallen to ₹317. The price band of ₹330-340 is a strong barrier to be breached and there is a possibility of it declining further.

Supporting the bearish bias, the contract has formed an inverted hammer candlestick pattern – a bearish reversal – on the weekly chart.

We, therefore, expect the contract to fall from here. While ₹300 can be a minor support, the zinc futures might drop below this level and decline to the support band of ₹292-286.

On the other hand, if the contract manages to break out of the resistance at ₹340, it can rally to ₹360, and then possibly to ₹380.

Strategy: The outlook is bearish as long as the contract remains below ₹340. Hence, traders can consider fresh short positions at ₹317 and add more shorts if the price rises to ₹330. Place the initial stop-loss at ₹350. When the price touches ₹300, revise the stop-loss down to ₹315. Exit all the shorts at ₹292.
