Technical analysis: Key levels for gold and crude
Gold has moved higher again, while oil’s hold on $45 is looking shaky.
Gold testing $1260
Gold continues to move higher as stocks fall. A firm close above $1260 continues to elude the commodity, but this seems more of a matter of time than anything else.
However, with the price now so extended and a yawning gap between it and the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) of $1230, some weakness over the coming weeks would not be surprising.
WTI back on a downward path
The price of WTI turned lower last week and is testing the $45.00 area again today.
Further declines will start to bring $42.00 into play. A rebound could target $49.20, previous key support.
