Gold heading lower from Fibonacci resistance

Gold is declining once more, following a rally into the 76.4% retracement yesterday. We have a major trendline of support to note to the downside, yet for now it looks like we could see another leg lower.

A break back up above $1259 would provide a more bullish outlook.

Brent continues to gain

Brent is showing further signs of a resurgence, with the price having rallied into the crucial $47.91 swing high. A break and hourly close through that level would provide greater confidence of further gains in the coming week.

To the downside, we would need to see a break back below $45.24 to negate the bullish view that is now in play.
