Gold price stuck fast and Brent crude price held in a range
Both gold and oil have found themselves stuck, although for gold the range is a very narrow one indeed.
Gold drifts sideways
Gold continues to drift along below $1980, having found support yesterday near $1960.
A break above $1985 would clear recent resistance and open the way for a push towards $2000, while a more near-term bearish view would likely require a drop below $1940.
Brent still stuck in range
Brent crude has been unable to establish a new trend either higher or lower.
Gains since 23 July have been confined to $44.50, while dips towards $42.60 tend to bring out the buyers, with 30 July’s sharp dip being rapidly bought. Trend followers will have to wait for a break of the current range to provide confirmation of a fresh direction.
