MCX-Zinc stuck in a sideways range

The Zinc futures contract on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) retains its ₹175-₹185 a kg sideways range for the fifth consecutive week.

After hovering below ₹180 over the last few days, the contract surged above this resistance on Tuesday. It is currently trading at ₹183.25 and is on the verge of testing the upper end of the range, which is ₹185.

Whether the contract manages to break above ₹185 in the coming sessions or not will decide the next move.

A strong break and a decisive close above ₹185 will confirm the range breakout. Such a break will also keep the overall uptrend that has been in place since June intact and signal the resumption of this uptrend.

An immediate rise to ₹190 is possible in such a scenario. A further break above ₹190 will see the uptrend extending to ₹195 or even higher levels.

On the other hand, if the MCX-Zinc futures contract fails to break above the resistance at ₹185 in the coming days and reverses lower, then the sideways range will continue for some time.

Such a pull-back from ₹185 will increase the possibility of the contract falling to ₹180 and ₹175 levels once again.
