Gold puts bears in control
The bounce yesterday meant that $1270 is the level to watch on the downside, but so long as the price holds below $1285 it looks like the bears are still in control.
A break below $1270 heads towards $1250 and then $1240, while a sustained rally has to clear $1300 to indicate a fresh breakout is on its way.
