A break above that targets the 1687.40-91.80 area, marked by the 38.2% level and the May 22 high. Near-term support is at 1634.30, the August 22 low.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices overturned bearish reversal cues noted last week, pushing higher to challenge resistance at the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion (1400.72). A break this barrier targets a rising channel top at 1423.17, followed by the 100% level at 1440.23. Near-term support is at 1376.28, the intersection of the channel bottom and the 61.8% Fib.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices showed little downward follow-through after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Positioning appears to be tracing out a consolidation Triangle setup once again, a formation typically indicative of consolidation preceding resumption of the overall trend (which favors the upside in this case). Resistance at the Triangle top is reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 108.40, with a break above that targeting the 50% level at 110.32. Triangle support is now at 103.68. A reversal beneath that eyes a rising trend line at 100.44.
