Gold sees strong buying once more

For the second time in a week gold has seen strong buying towards the close.

It still needs to hold above $1180, and then push on to clear $1200, but a weakening US dollar provides a potential buying opportunity here. 

WTI seeks to clear $52

The price touched $52 yesterday, before dropping back. It needs to clear $52 to maintain its upward move.

A failure to get back above $52 suggests a drop back to $49.50 in the first instance, and then down to $48.
