Gold at 1319.50 tested and held above the support of 1310-1300 as expected and keeps open the chances of seeing 1330 the Key resistance near term, but the major move can be expected Wednesday after the central bank meets.
Silver at 19.28 making strong daily candle Monday, but unless the resistance of 19.30 is broken on the Northside, the range bound movement in 18.50-19.30 may continue for the next couple of sessions.
Both Brent Crude at 45.64, and WTI Crude Oil 43.00 made their weekly lows very close to their major supports of 45.00 and 42.50 respectively. These supports may hold until the Us Fed and BOJ conclude there policy meetings.
