Crude drags commodities higher

Brent crude is headed for a test of its 2011 high at $126/barrel as tensions with Iran escalate. Upward breakout would offer a long-term target of $150*. A trough above the zero line on 63-day Twiggs Momentum reflects the strong up-trend.

The CRB Commodities Index is being boosted by rising crude prices, petroleum-based products making up a third of the index weighting. The index itself is testing resistance at 325, while 63-day Twiggs Momentum is at the zero line. Breakout above 325 would signal a primary up-trend with an initial target of 350*.
