Gold price and oil price both steady after recovery
Gold recovered yesterday but is still stuck in a short-term downtrend, but oil prices are looking to break recent highs.
Gold falters after Tuesday recovery
While the price of gold bounced sharply from $1450 and has moved above the 50-hour simple moving average (SMA) at $1458, it now needs to break above yesterday’s highs at $1463 to open the path to more gains.
If this fails then a new lower high has been created and a bearish view remains in place, targeting $1450 and lower.
WTI looks to break recent highs
Having held its ground earlier in the week, the WTI price now needs to push on above $58.50 to revive the uptrend.
It has been testing this area over the past week, but a daily close above it still eludes the price. A turn back below $57.00 would begin to suggest a more bearish view, but even here the $56.50 level and the bottom end of rising channel support may come into play.
