Crude Oil, Gold, Silver & Copper Markets
Gold at 1226.46 weakened a bit due to a firm USD (.DXY) at 100.97, but medium term uptrend is intact as long as major support of 1205-1200 holds. This week may see a continued sideways consolidation in the range of 1220-50.
Silver at 17.85 is stalled near the resistance at 18.00-10 as expected, near term weakness would be confirmed on a break below 17.50. So, it can oscillate in the narrow range of 17.50-18.10.
Brent Crude at 55.78, and WTI Crude Oil at 53.08 both have suffered rejection at the higher end of their ranges as expected which keep the medium term broader ranges of 53-58 and 50-55 intact. This sideways consolidation may continue for the rest of this week.
Copper at 2.79 is consolidating the sharp gains made this week, but to keep the Bullish momentum intact and higher targets of 2.90-95 open, it must hold above the interim support of 2.75 to keep those prices in sight.
