After two days of losses gold has recovered, with a test of the $1307 area yesterday seeing fresh buying momentum. Now the price needs to push above $1340 in short order to confirm that more gains are on the way.
As before, a drop through $1307 and then $1300 would raise the risk of a move back to $1263 and the 50-day simple moving average (SMA).
