Technical analysis: key levels for gold and crude
Gold is stuck below $1310, while oil prices are holding on to their breakout from last week.
Gold held below $1310
For the second time in a week, gold has stumbled at $1310.
However, rising trendline support may come into play around $1302, and a push higher might yet see $1310 broken. Further declines target $1292 and then $1285.
WTI holds its ground
The WTI price has edged back over the last couple of sessions, but the breakout of last week remains intact.
Fresh gains target the top end of the rising wedge, around $61. The bullish view remains intact unless we see a close below $58.
