Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude

Having recovered from its lows, gold is aiming for a move higher, while WTI is trading sideways.

Gold looks to rally

Gold appears to be consolidating before a move higher, and dips towards $1250 yesterday brought out buyers.

A move above $1260 will bring the key $1264 area, previously support, now resistance, into play. A move below $1240 is needed to put a more bearish view on the commodity.

WTI trades in a range

The price for WTI continues to bounce between $56.00 and $59.00, with the range being confirmed again yesterday as the price moved off the lower bound.

The next levels to watch for resistance are $58.00 and then $58.88, while a drop below $56.00 suggests a move to $55.67, and then down to $55.00.
