Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude

While gold is under pressure, no such caution is being seen in the oil price. 

Gold falters for the time being

The uptrend for gold remains in pace here, with temporary weakness likely to prove to be a buying opportunity.

First areas to look for support come in at $1337 and $1326, with a loss of these likely to suggest a turn is at hand. We have seen momentum weaken, although not terminally. A push higher targets $1357 and then $1366. 

WTI displays no hint of bearishness

The WTI rally shows no sign of abating, with little weakness in evidence.

Further gains should be expected, with a close below $62.76 needed to put a more bearish spin on the current outlook.
