Gold settled yesterday (Friday) at 1251, down a scant nine points for the week. But not before being boffed all about the 1240-1280 resistance zone, trading exacerbated by currency disruption induced on Thursday from the European Central...
Nine weeks ago as Gold closed out last year at 1061, both herein and on radio, we set a 2016 price target for Gold of "the upper 1200s", refining it to 1280 as that is the upper band of the regularly-cited "1240-1280 resistance zone". Then...
