Gold turns down as equities recover

The recovery in equities late on in yesterday’s session prompted a wave of selling in gold, wiping out most of the gains for the day.

If this continues, then $1270, and then $1264 come into play. It requires a move back above $1280, and then on above the key $1290 level to suggest a broader rally is in the making.

Brent clambers higher for a second day

Brent is recovering after heavy losses earlier in the week. Continued gains would head to $63.03 and then the high from the beginning of the month at $64.56.

A failure to move higher would target the $60.00 level, and then on to $58.93, and then $58.48.
