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.
For the past 6 weeks, both Brent Crude at 56.88, and WTI Crude Oil at 53.89 are ranged of 53-58 and 50-55 respectively. This week, a resolution to the Northside may happen and Brent Crude may test 60 and WTI Crude Oil may test at 58.
Copper at 2.636 seeing support at 2.61, a break below 2.60 may push it to 2.55-50. Overall, the technical structure is damaged, the resistance at 2.75 may not be tested very soon
