Crude Oil Daily Technical Outlook
Crude oil jumped to as high as 84.53 but was limited by mentioned 85.42 resistance and weakens again. With 4 hours MACD crossed below signal line, intraday bias is turned neutral. As noted before, decline from 88.63 is still in favor to continue with 84.52 resistance intact. Break of 80.06 will target 61.8% retracement of 70.76 to 88.63 at 77.59 and below. Though, above 84.53 will now flip intraday bias back to the upside for retesting 88.63 high.
In the bigger picture, the steeper than expected fall from 88.63 is mixing up the outlook and argue that rise from 64.23 is possibly finished with three waves up to 88.63. In other words, it could be the second wave of consolidation from 87.17 and the third wave might have just started. We'll now slightly favor more decline as long as 88.63 resistance holds. Nevertheless, medium term rise from 33.2 is treated as the second wave of the consolidation pattern that started at 147.27. As long as 64.23 support holds, medium term rise from 33.2 is still in favor to extend to 50% retracement of 147.27 to 33.2 at 90.24 and possibly higher before completion.

Gold Daily Technical Outlook
With 4 hours MACD crossed below signal line, Gold's recovery from 1329 should have completed at 1382.9 already. Intraday bias is now cautiously on the downside for 1315.8/1329 support zone. Decisive break there will complete a head and shoulder top reversal pattern and should turn outlook bearish for deeper fall. On the other hand, strong rebound from 1315.8/1329 will indicate that gold is merely in sideway consolidation and another would still be seen before topping.
In the bigger picture, rise from 1155.6 is treated as the fifth wave of the five wave sequence from 1044.5, which should also be fifth wave of the rally from 681 (2008 low). Such rally might still continue towards 161.8% projection of 931.3 to 1227.5 from 1044.5 at 1449.6 before completion. Though, we're aware of long term projection target of 100% projection of 253 to 1033.9 from 681 at 1462 and we'd anticipate strong resistance from there to bring medium term correction finally. On the downside, however, break of 1315.8 support will be an early alert of medium term reversal and will turn focus back to 1155.6 support for confirmation.
