Gold markets went back and forth during the session on yesterday, testing the 1180 level. This is an area which is important in this market as it was a support. We believe that the bounce from here will more than likely test the $1200 level next. On the other hand, if we break down below the bottom of the range for the Tuesday session, this market will more than likely head back down to the 1150 level.

The silver markets initially fell during the course of the day on yesterday, but struggled to keep the losses as the 16.50 level offered support. This is an area that has offered support and resistance both several times, and as a result it has affected the market again. The support resulted in turning the market around and forming a hammer, which is bullish. If we can break the top of this hammer, we believe that the market then heads to the 17.50 level given enough time. The 17.00 level will be a bit resistive but we feel that it will break above.

The light sweet crude market fell during the session on yesterday, testing the $47.50 level for support. The $47 level below that is supportive, but if we can break below there, we should see this market fall even lower and heading to the $45 level. The market has been very bearish, and this is a market that we think will sell off every time it rallies. The market should continue to fall based on not only upon the less demand, but also the rising value of the US Dollar. The $50 level above should be resistive.
