Gold price moves higher as oil price continues to fall
Gold is in favour again while oil prices have resumed their downward move now that the OPEC+ meeting is out of the way.
Gold finds new upward momentum
The rally continues in the gold price, as it was able to hit a new higher high yesterday.
The price has edged lower overnight, but may be forming a higher low above $1700. Further gains target $1740, while a deeper move lower would head towards $1680. For the time being, however, it looks like the advantage continues to lie with the buyers.
WTI pushes lower as demand concerns weigh
Having run into resistance around $30.00, the WTI price has begun to turn lower, pushing below $27.00, which was support last week.
A rebound towards $27.50 to create a lower high could throw up a fresh selling opportunity, while a more bullish view requires a move back above $29.00 to then bring about another test of $30.00 and higher.
