Gold price bounces but oil price under pressure
Gold is moving cautiously higher, while oil prices are dropping back but remain in a rising channel.
Gold edges higher in early trading
Gold continues to retreat, and while the price has rebounded off the lows of Friday, it needs to maintain this push above $1475 to provide a more bullish view.
Any bounce that fails to move on above this would be a potential selling opportunity. Early October saw the price hold above $1458, so this might continue to be support. Below this the price heads to $1447, and then down to $1410.
WTI drops back after gains
While still in an uptrend from the October lows, the price of WTI has found it hard to push on above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $57.40.
Dips towards $56.00 have found buyers, while below this the price may find support at the lower bound of the current rising channel, around $55.00. A rally through $57.60 would open the way to further gains and the top of the rising channel at $58.50.
