Gold climbed as high as 1417, pushed higher by a surging oil price and collapsing dollar, however the rally was short lived and the yellow metal fell back to close around 1410.

Equities have halted their corrective decline, though we would like to see a test of 1600 before the rally resumes to take the S&P to new highs.
