​​​Gold edges higher

​The price has rallied off its lows from last week, and with the indication of a short-term higher low buyers are hoping some more sustained upside can result. ​ ​First the price has to breach trendline resistance from the July highs, and if this is cleared the next hurdle becomes the 1 September high at $1953.

Above here a more medium-term bullish view might begin to prevail. ​ ​Alternately, a failure to break above trendline resistance sets up a fresh lower high and will target $1900 and then $1884.

​Brent clears $93

​Oil’s impressive gains continue apace, with Brent clearing the $93 level on Thursday and recovering from some brief weakness on Friday. ​ ​The price has not seen a down day since 7 September, and has yet to test even potential trendline support from the mid-August low. Further upside will see the price head on towards the highs of October and November around $99. ​

​As yet there is no sign of any sustained weakness, leaving sellers without much on which to build a thesis. A close below $91 might indicate some short-term weakness has begun.

​Silver stages a rally from support zone ​

Last week saw the price rally out of the $22.30 support zone. ​ ​Previous bounces from this level opened up a rally towards the $24.50 level, and a repeat of this might set up a move towards trendline resistance from the May high. ​ ​Sellers will need to see a reversal back below $22.20 and could then confirm a more bearish view.
