Gold rally falls short of resistance

Gold rallied sharply overnight, with the price attempting to move back into the $1284 resistance level. Yet with the price currently falling short of that level, there is a chance we could see another push towards the downside.

However, should we see a break through $1284, then this would point towards a period of strength coming into play. 

Brent turning lower following recent upside

Brent is starting to weaken following another strong move higher yesterday. In the near-term, we have trendline support to contend with.

Should the price fall below there, we would be looking for Fibonacci retracements to come into play for bullish buying opportunities. A break below $62.17 would be required to negate this bullish view.
