Commodities Brief – Precious metals pare European gains, crude stuck at 87.00

Gold prices have fallen off its highs during European trading (1424), as sharp resistance at 1425 prevented a rise further. Gains were gradually shed leading up to the onset of US trading Friday with the yellow metal presently settling at USD $1407.25 per oz. in these moments. Ultimately however, the break above 1400 level supports the intraday bullish momentum, and accordingly a positive scenario has replaced a strictly bearish outlook previously – prolonged stability above 1400 is vital for this to remain so.
