Trend Conditions in Gold Unchanged and Bearish Following Thursday's Move Lower


WTI futures remain in a bear mode condition and recent gains still appear to be a correction. Initial firm resistance to watch is $72.72, the Jun 21 high. A break of this level would expose $75.70, the Jun 5 high and a key resistance. Clearance of this level would signal a stronger reversal. For bears, a resumption of weakness would pave the way for a move towards $66.96, the Jun 12 low and the next key support. The trend condition in Gold is unchanged and remains bearish. Fresh lows last week reinforce bearish conditions, confirming a resumption of the downtrend and extending the price sequence of lower lows and lower highs. Moving average studies are in a bear mode position highlighting current sentiment. The focus is on $1885.8, the Mar 15 low. Key resistance is $1985.3, the May 24 high. Initial resistance is $1929.4 the 20-day EMA.
