The price has now broken clear of the 20 DMA which is a bullish sign, though for now is still being capped by the 1475-1485 resistance zone and the 61.8% retracement level at 1475 in particular.
Gold has now been trading in a range from 1440 to 1485 for 10 trading sessions and a break out of the range either way should provide a trending move.
Resistance above will be found at 1500 and then at 1525-1530, which should prove to be very strong resistance as it was key support for the previous 18 months.
A break below 1440 could see a sharp sell off, with 1404 the initial target and a trip to the 1300s a distinct possibility.
Oil appears to be forming a top below key resistance at $98, though a break above this level could see a sharp rally develop, taking the price well above $100 a barrel.
The dollar remains weak, with equities powering higher - this suggests economic recovery and inflation, though at present commodities are not confirming this move higher.
