Gold has held key support again, while oil’s bullish momentum has picked up steam once again. 

Gold holds current level

Gold has continued to hold the $1307 area, raising the prospect of another move back towards the middle of the current trading range.

From here, $1314 and $1326 are near-term targets on the upside, and then $1295, $1284 and $1264 on the downside.

WTI continues rally

The next target for the continued rally comes in at $73.25 for WTI, having seen the price spike higher on the back of Iran news.

Dips back towards $66.00 may well continue to be buying opportunities.
