Copper ETFs, Stocks About to Move Big

NEW YORK ( TheGoldAndOilGuy.com) -- With 2012 now behind us it's time to start looking for some new long-term investments that have big potential gains in the new year. Copper is one metal that has caught my eye.

The long-term monthly chart of the copper ETF iPath DJ-UBS Copper TR Sub-Idx ETN (JJC) shows a potential cup and handle pattern accompanied with bullish volume characteristics. Last year copper traded sideways in a narrowing range.

This type of price action tends to bore traders and investors, forcing them to look elsewhere for new to trades. The saying is, "If the market doesn't shake you out, it will wait you out."

You can see on the monthly chart that the interest in this commodity diminished. You can tell because of the sideways movement and declining volume. I like to focus on investments that are out of favor but are showing signs of another big trend starting. getting on the train before it leaves the station can make for a fun ride.

Take a look at the charts, analysis and my best copper stock setup below:

10. Kazakhmys PLC (KAZ): 4.55%

Best Copper Stock Setup - LUNMF

After reviewing the main holdings in this fund I noticed one stock that looks ready to start a new bull market. Lundin Mining shares look to be building a Stage 1 base and could break out and start to rally any week. Keep in mind, 3/4 stocks move with the broad market so we do want the major indexes to find a bottom or at least trade sideways if we want copper stocks to start their run.
