10.11.2014 - Technical view on commodity futures
The price of gold after consolidation above the level of 1140 tried to fix below this mark, but after an unsuccessful attempt started to correct upwards and reached the upper limit of the local downward channel. Breaking through this border and fixing the price above 1170 will be the signal for the opening of long positions. We maintain a positive medium-term outlook for gold, but assume the possibility of a drop in prices to the level of 1100.
Nearest resistance levels: 1180, 1200, 1220, 1230, 1244, 1252, 1265, 1278, 1290
Nearest support levels: 1140 1120 1100
The price of Light sweet crude oil shows a gradual increase within the correction and now is clamped in a triangle.
