Oil testing two month support

Oil is hovering around technical support, having pushed against these levels on the opening day of the week.

Brent crude dipped briefly below $42 and WTI $39 but both having recovered a little to sit just above thse levels. The declines yesterday took both to more than two month lows and despite climbing back above support levels, both continue to look very vulnerable to a more significant correction in the coming weeks.

Gold looking shaky

The dollar made small gains on Monday and could be showing signs of heading for a corrective move, having come under heavy selling pressure the last few months.

The greenback sell-off has lost momentum and a small recovery could be next, which does not bode well for gold as it tries to rediscover its mojo. The longer-term outlook looks good for gold, even now as it trades above $1,900 but the short-term may look a little less bright.

Should the dollar break higher, $1,900 will look in serious jeapardy, with $1,860 below not looking much better. Let’s face it, the yellow metal could move back to $1,800 and would still look good, even more attractive arguably.
