EUR/USD fails to resist again above 1.1300, Eurozone PMIs in focus

GBP/USD: Buyers await UK retail sales to validate 1.3035/30 support

Gold: At lowest since Dec. 27, 4H RSI oversold
Gold is currently trading at $1,271, the lowest level since Dec. 27. The drop to 3.5-month lows bolsters the already bearish technical setup on the daily chart. The metal, therefore, appears on track to test support at $1,263.

WTI: Pullback towards $63.00 persists amid lack of fresh catalysts
Having failed to rise beyond $64.60, WTI witnesses pullback to $63.60 during early Asian sessions on Thursday. Repeated failures to rise beyond $64.80 and mixed inventory data seems to pull the energy benchmark towards $63.00 immediate support.
