Crude Oil, Gold, Silver & Copper
Commentary: Crude Oil and precious metals up on BOJ’s QQE, and the FOMC’s standing pat on rates. PE
Gold at 1331.50 broke the resistance at 1330 on a sharp move North. Near term looks Bullish with the possibility of testing at 1350. 1st support seen at 1310.
Silver at 19.76 moved above resistance at 19.50 on a nice move, becoming Bullish in here.
Brent Crude at 46.44 and WTI Crude Oil 44.83 traded higher Wednesday. Supports 45.00 and 42.50 are holding in here but we need to see if the prices continue to hold at these higher marks, as prices move higher, we may see an extension towards 50.00 for Brent Crude and 46.00 for WTI Crude Oil
Copper at 2.15 has been stable in the 2.14-2.17 region for the past few sessions, as long as support at 2.12 holds, there is a possibility for Copper to move North to 2.20 in the near term.
