Crude oil prices and gold deposits:
- Crude oil prices higher in order to challenge two-year trend resistance
- Gold prices mark the time after the break in the long-term rising support line
- Fed Chair Powell testimony, FOMC minutes may damage commodities

These movements are likely to reflect pre-positioning ahead of major events ahead as the highly anticipated markets congressional testimony by Fed Chair Powell as well as the release of minutes form June's FOMC political meeting .

June's forecast update predicted a 25bps average between now and the end of 2020. Investors are long fashion deaf and see at least two and possibly three cuts (for a total amount of 50-75bps in relief) before the end of this year.
RUDE OIL AND GOLD PRICE may fall on POWELL TESTIMONY, FOMC MINUTES

On the other hand, rhetoric claiming to push may be deaf in the market's view, forcing traders to return expectations to a more modest attitude. Not surprisingly, Greenback also seems likely to find support in this scenario. It seems to indicate that stasis may be the best case for oil prices, while gold looks pretty vulnerable to selling pressure.
