Gold at 1223.8 along with a weak US Dollar (.DXY) Index at 99.72. It can test the near term resistance at 1230-40, a turnaround in the USD may weaken Gold.

Silver at 17.60 is holding above Key support at 17.50-30, that may drive it to 18.00 or even 18.40 near term, but any weakness in Gold may affect the Devil’s Metal too.
