Gold and Brent diverge amid Chinese worries
Gold looks likely to push higher, while Brent crude declines take us towards a crucial breakdown level.
Gold expected to push higher despite morning losses
Gold has been drifting lower this morning, coming off the back of a rally into the crucial $1568 resistance level.
With the intraday creation of higher lows still in play, we are likely to break this resistance level before long. A decline below $1546 would negate this bullish short-term outlook.
Brent crude declines towards $60.20 support
Brent crude has been on the slide this week, with fears over Chinese demand hurting prices. That takes us back towards the crucial $60.20 support level.
Should that level break, it would signal a wider bearish phase coming into play. Given the decline through all Fibonacci levels, it does look likely we will continue to decline, with a break through $65.20 required to negate this short-term bearish trend.
