Gold continues to gain ground

Gold is moving higher yet again following a deep retracement yesterday. The fact that yesterday’s retracement didn’t fall below $1262 was key to continuing this bullish uptrend, and as such, further gains seem likely.

Should the price break above $1269, then any pullback would have to break below $1265 to negate the uptrend. For now, pullbacks are there to be bought into, rather than being indicative of a reversal. However, if the price does break the most recent swing low, then this would be a more worrying signal.
