Gold’s price holds on for now
A recovery to $1240 yesterday saw modest profit-taking overnight, but the dip buyers are returning to lift the gold price off its lows. We now look to see if the bulls can breach $1245, and then push on to the 200-day simple moving average at $1261.
The staunch defence of $1220 over the past week lends credence to the idea that the buyers are back in control. Sellers would need to see the price below $1220 to indicate that the rally has run its course.
