The price continues to climb, marching higher again this morning, with a close above $1280 putting it on course for a test of the 2016 high just above $1300.
The biggest risk to a continuation of this rally is a stronger US dollar, but for the moment dips should see fresh buying as and when they appear. It would take a move back below $1260 to nullify the upward trend.
