Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude
Gold is at last able to push higher, while oil prices are looking to follow up on fresh highs for the year.
Gold finally finds some upside momentum
After a week of trying and failing to move higher, gold might finally have found some bullish momentum.
Further gains above $1300 target $1309 and $1326, while a failure to move above $1300 reinstates the existing range and suggests a renewed push back towards $1285.
WTI pushes on after new highs for the year
Brief pullbacks continue to provide buying opportunities for WTI, as we saw last Friday.
A fresh push back towards $62.00 would likely see more buyers emerge, while further gains target $66.05.
