Nikkei at 19521.59, -0.35% has room to move towards 19800 on a break above 19600, while below 19600 it could remain stable in the 19400-19600 zone, could see some consolidation in here.

Gold, Silver, Copper & Crude Oil Markets
Gold at 1233 closed at higher from a weekly low of 1196, now look for a close above 1240-45 near term to take fresh Long positions. But before that it may spend a few sessions within the 1215-45 area.
Silver at 17.46 tested 1st resistance at 17.47-48 before closing lower. A break above that mark could drive it to 18.00. Overall waiting for confirmation of directional clarity.
Copper at 2.67 almost unchanged and trading in a narrow range of 2.65-72. Remain Bearish while it is trading below 2.70-72. A close above 2.72 negates the short term Bearish outlook
Brent Crude at 51.45, and WTI Crude Oil at 48.41 shows no strong sign of recovering. Broth marked the intra-day low at 51.36 and 48.26, close to Key supports of 50 and 47.50. Will remain Bearish while Brent Crude and WTI Crude Oil are trading below 53 and 50.
Have a terrific week.
