0

   •  Extends the post-FOMC up-move and finally broke through a key descending trend-line resistance, part of a symmetrical triangular formation on short-term charts.

   •  The $1300 round figure mark now seems to protect the immediate downside amid reviving safe-haven demand and weaker tone surrounding the US Dollar.
