GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
Gold prices are hovering above familiar support in the 1312.36-16.50 area (range floor, 38.2% Fib retracement). A daily close below that exposes the 50% level at 1301.19. Alternatively, a breach of range resistance at 1341.04 paves the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1352.40.
CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
Crude oil prices are consolidating within a Falling Wedge chart pattern, a setup that typically carries bullish implications. A daily close above its upper boundary – now at 62.64 – exposes the February 26 high at 64.21. Alternatively, a move back below the 59.83-60.00 area (wedge floor, March 8 low) opens the door for a retest of the February 9 bottom at 58.11.
