Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude

The gold bounce is out of steam this morning, but oil is still on the up.

Gold falters at $1360

The gold rally last week suffered a knock trying to break through $1360.

The failure to recover this level has brought about a test of the $1345 support area. Below this, $1326, $1314 and $1307 come into play. A close above $1360 suggests another attempt to break $1366.
