Steel ETF (SLX) Coiling For A Big Move!

steel etf price pattern descending wedge analysis chart december

Elevated steel prices have consumers (and investors) concerned about inflation. And whether inflation strengthens or lightens up may depend on the next move in steel prices.

After a huge rally out of the coronavirus crash low, steel prices peaked this summer but have been in consolidation mode ever since.

As you can see in the chart above, the Steel ETF (SLX) has been narrowing of late and may soon break higher or lower.

Bulls are hoping the blue breakout line (that once was resistance) now holds as support. And all this may soon be coming to a head at (1).

What SLX does next should provide a clue to the next big move in inflation or lack of inflation for a while. Will steel act like Superman and head higher once more? Stay tuned!
