Gold is under strong pressure as traders take profits amid easing tensions in the Middle East. It looks that Iran and Israel have no intention to continue strikes against each other, which is bearish for gold markets.

Silver suffered a strong sell-off as gold/silver ratio rallied above the 85.50 level.

In case silver declines below the $27.00 level, it will head towards the support in the $26.00 – $26.30 range.
