Oil price is being corrected, but the downtrend continues. Metal trends reversed upwards


Oil is trading down in the middle-term on Monday. Target Zone 3 [63.80 – 63.46] was reached, the price is being corrected now. The key resistance is at [67.69 – 67.35].

The short-term trend is also downward. The price was being corrected towards the key resistance IZ [65.79 – 65.62] on Friday. The price is down from the zone, but there hasn’t been a sell signal yet, according to technical analysis.

According to technical analysis, there is an opportunity to look for buy trades with the target to renew Friday’s high. You can look for purchases in Additional Zone [64.86 – 64.78].

To sell in the trend, expect a pattern; the closer it is to IZ, the better. Sell target will be August’s low.

Gold sellers couldn’t break through Target Zone 6 [1179.2 – 1176.1] last week. Now, gold price is being corrected with a possible target in Target Zone [1194.3 – 1191.2]. After the zone is reached, look for sales according to the pattern.

The short-term trend has reversed upwards. Intermediary Zone [1177.2 – 1175.7] was broken through on Friday. Now, the buy target is Target Zone [1194.3 – 1191.2].

I recommend buying gold on the correction towards the strong support, Additional Zone [1178.9 – 1178.1] and Intermediary Zone [1171.1 – 1169.6]. To buy, we need a pattern.

Silver price is being corrected too. The correction target is Target Zone [15.08 – 15.00]. After the zone is reached, look for new sales further in the trend.

The local trend reversed upwards on Friday. The junior margin zones prove it. Intermediary Zone [14.68 – 14.64] was broken out, and so, the target is now Target Zone [15.08 – 15.00].

I recommend buying on the correction. Good buy prices are in Intermediary Zone, the key support, bordered by [14.42 – 14.38]. The second way is to wait until the high of last Thursday is renewed and to build the support zones from the new high. Look for buys in the zones.

IZ - Intermediary Zone: responsible for the price momentum reversing.

TZ - Target Zone: a zone that is 75% likely to be reached after IZ breakout.

GZ - Gold Zone: zone in the medium-term momentum.

All zones are calculated based on the average daily price of the instrument and margin requirements of the futures.
