Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude
Oil prices continue their move lower from the highs, raising questions about the sustainability of the rebound, while gold is still bouncing around in a range.
Gold remains rangebound
The price of gold continues to falter around $1295, as we saw yesterday.
Now a push back to $1285 may result, but unless that is broken the rangebound trade remains in place. A push down to $1280 or $1276 would create a more bearish impression.
Brent edges lower
Brent's steady retreat from the highs above $62.00 continues. We have seen lower highs over the past two sessions, as small rallies meet with selling pressure.
A push below $59.00 maintains the bearish view, and it would take a recovery above $60.00 and then $60.50 to reaffirm the bullish view of last week.
