Gold spot XAUUSD rejected at 0.618 retracement and are now back around 1,900. Key support is 1,890. AS break below could see XAUUSD dropping to around 1,850 possibly 1,825.
If it trades back above 55 SMA and 1,950 uptrend could be resumed.
Silver spot XAGUSD spot dropped below key support at around $24. Some support at 23.17 level but with RSI being well below 40 threshold there is risk down to 22. To neutralise current short term down trend Silver needs to move back above $25.
Platinum spot XPTUSD took out support at around 957 and is likely to test December 2021 lows around 888. RSI in negative sentiment, Bollinger bands expanding. There will be strong resistance at a 1,000

Copper dropped below support at 462 top find support at the medium term rising trend line and the 200 daily SMA. If Copper takes out yesterdays low at 440 it is likely to sell off down to around 420.
This short term bearish scenario will be neutralized if Copper jumps back above 462.40.
Iron Ore is likely to test support at 143.20. If Iron Ore do a daily close below it has entered Bear territory and is likely to test key support at 132.60. 166.55 is the resistance Iron Ore needs to take out to reverse current bearish correction picture.
