Gold & WTI Crude Trade Levels – Can The Commodities Continue Lower?

The gold and crude oil typically trade in a similar direction because of their positive correlation. However, over the previous week, they traded in opposite directions due to the fundamental changes. The stronger dollar keeps the demand for gold lower, while, the API and EIA reports and Saudi Arabia intentions to raise crude oil prices fueled the demand for crude oil.

Despite the variable fundamentals and negative correlation, both of the commodities traded as per our Gold & WTI trading levels. Let’s take a look at this week’s new trading levels.
