Gold – Price testing resistance here at 1302. Constructive near-term while above the weekly open at 1291. A topside breach targets 1307 backed by 1313 (broader bearish invalidation)

Crude Oil – Focus is on key resistance confluence at 63.57/68weekly close above is needed to keep the long-bias viable targeting 65 and beyond. Interim support at the 200DMA ~61.35 backed by bullish invalidation at 60.06.
