  • Higher gold prices are generally bullish for gold mining stocks. Newmont (NEM) hit a year to date high on an intraday basis on Friday, although closed with a small indecision candle (Spinning top Doji). If prices retrace, we’d like to see 63.63 hold has support whilst a break above 65.78 assumes bullish continuation.
  • Palladium rose to a 14-day high and is about two-thirds the way to our 2840 target, projected form the inverted head and shoulders pattern. The bias remains bullish above 2700 (just above the neckline of the H&S pattern).
  • Copper retraced on Friday but our bias remains bullish whilst prices hold above $4.00 and for a re-test and break to new highs.
