​Gold price and Brent crude price expected to turn higher

Gold and Brent crude expected to reverse higher to build on recent short-term bullish breakouts.

​Gold turning lower after bullish breakout

Gold has been on the slide in early hours today, with the price easing back after an important break above $1563.

Given that break, there is a good chance we are seeing a short-term retracement before we push higher once more. With that in mind, the price of gold is expected to turn higher once again, with a break below $1536 required to negate that view.

Brent crude easing back after bullish break

Brent has been weakening since the gap higher at the start of the week. There is certainly a strong chance that this pullback is a short-term move given the rise through $64.65 over the weekend.

With that in mind, it seems likely that we will see the price of Brent turn higher again rather than break below the $63.16 low. However, should we see that support level broken, it would bring about a more bearish outlook.
