Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude
Gold is still trying to break higher, while Brent is, for now, being supported around the $62 level.
Gold still trying to break higher
Another attempt to break higher yesterday was beaten, but the price of gold has recovered to an extent and is back at $1285.
From here the next target is downtrend resistance from the February highs, which would come into play around $1293.
Brent holds support for now
The price has fought to hold $69.20 this week for Brent, and has succeeded so far.
But lower highs from 25 April are still in place, putting significant bearish pressure on the commodity. The next level of possible support it $66.80, while a move back above $70.80 would provide a more bullish view and suggest that a higher low is in place.
