Commentary: Almost all the commodities are flat to unchanged with no real activity.PE
Gold at 1226.46 tested support at 1215 as expected and the following bounce from the support may drive it to 1240-50 again, but any fresh strength in The US Dollar (.DXY) Index (100.93) may keep it stable in the range of 1215-50.
Silver at 18.016 is in an uptrend with no momentum. If the Gold-Silver Ratio (68.55) rallied from the current levels, then any weakness in Gold due to USD strength may trigger a sharper decline in Silver, 1st resistance remains unchanged at 18.10.
