Gold stuck in a range

The bounce in gold is heading back towards the crucial $1284 level, but for now we remain stuck in the trading range of the past two weeks.

A break above this level is needed to signal a broader bullish move. Any weakness suggests a return to the $1264 support zone.

WTI pauses after run higher

WTI’s parabolic move has slowed somewhat, with a potential move to $55.67, if the downside gathers traction.

The bullish trend remains intact, unless we see a daily close below $54.00.
