Talking Points:

Crude oil prices may fall as markets sour after Mnuchin G20 debut OPEC output cut extension may be discussed at Berlin energy summit Gold prices look to Fed commentary for post-FOMC direction cues Crude oil prices marked time, seemingly unable to reconcile conflicting comments from #SaudiArabia and Russia about the future of the OPEC output cut deal with some of the leading producers outside the cartel. The kingdom's Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said his country was prepared to extend the accord beyond mid-year but his Russian counterpart Alexander Novak said it was too early to discuss doing so.

A gathering of industry bigwigs for the Energy Transition conference in Berlin may bring market-moving commentary early in the week. Otherwise, risk appetite may assert its influence over cycle-sensitive energy prices. That may bode ill for the WTI benchmark in the near term. S & P 500 futures trading significantly lower to start the week, suggesting that a risk-off mood may be setting in.

h, come across the wires. Rhetoric reiterating policymakers' intent to continue raising rates this year may remind investors that the Fed is alone among is G10 peers in pursuing stimulus withdrawal. That may help cap gold's gains.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Gold prices may continue to recover after prices narrowly closed above resistance at 1227.99, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. From here, a further push above the 38.2% level at 1248.58 targets the 50% Fib at 1265.23. Alternatively, a turn back below 1227.99 now recast as support paves the way for a retest of the 14.6% expansion at 1215.29.
