Gold eyes $1300
Having rallied sharply on Friday, gold might be in a position to push higher. If the price can hold above $1260 and the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) then we would look for the chance to buy weakness with a view to a general push back to $1300.
A move down from the current level would head towards $1250 and then to $1200.
