16.07.2015 - Technical view on commodity futures
The price of gold continued to decline within the descending channel and reached the target level at 1143. If the price will fix below the level 1150, we expect a further drop in prices in a downward channel to the level of 1100. In case of breaking through the upper boundary of the channel, the confirmation of a buy signal will be fixing the price above the level local maximum at 1165. We expect price decline in the near future, but expect the resumption of growth in the medium term.
Nearest resistance levels: 1150, 1165, 1195, 1205, 1215, 1230, 1244, 1256, 1280, 1300
Nearest support levels: 1143, 1100
The price of Light sweet crude oil dropped to the support level at 51.50 and rebounded upwards and soon will reach the upper limit of the downward channel.
