Gold eyes support at $1061

Despite suffering one of its longest losing streaks in years, gold prices have risen slightly this morning, moving back above yesterday’s lows.

However, we still need to see a close back above $1080 to suggest that the buyers are back in charge. Otherwise, we look to support at $1061.

Brent could see $45

Dips below $43.50 for Brent continue to be bought, but until the price moves back through $45 upside is likely to be contained.

A move through here targets $45.80 and then the 200-hour SMA at $46.46. Downside support is still likely around $43.30.

WTI targets $42.60

Upside targets for WTI lie around $42.60 and then $43.20, while support is possible around $41 and $39.95.
