Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude

Gold is looking to recover from a tough week, while oil is seeing steady buying above $68.

Gold fights to hold key support

The price suffered a sharp reverse last week, and gold looks to be headed lower once again.

The next stop is $1236 (vital support earlier in July) and if this breaks then $1213 and $1204 are the next areas to watch. A close above $1260 is needed to restore a more bullish outlook.

WTI steadies after falls

WTI fell back from a recent higher high last week, but the uptrend is still in place.

Buyers came in from around $68.00 last week, so if this holds then a move back to $73.00 is possible, with some potential resistance along the way at Friday’s high of $70.78. Below $68.00, the price will head back towards the $64.00 support zone.
