(61.8% Fibonacci retracement) and the May 17 high at $1,289/oz. To break the series of recent lower highs, gold needs to break and close above the May 14 high at $1,303.4/oz. A break below the $1,277 - $1,281/oz. zone opens the way to 200-day ma support, currently at $1,271.6/oz. A break either way may be sharp.

Silver (XAG) Sliding Towards the Six-Month Low

A soft start for silver this week as the three-month downtrend remains dominant and currently caps any upside moves. Silver remains under all three moving averages and below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $14,92. To initiate a turn higher, silver will need to break the pattern of lower highs and lower lows. To start this, silver will need to hold above the six-month recently made at $14,38 and close above $14,65 and $14,87. Support at $14,38 remains key in the short-term to protect the spike low at $14,05 and the full retrace back to the November 14 low at $13,90.
