The chart below shows the nice bounce in gold futures tonight.
“With the yellow metal holding 1270, we look for a base and resumption of the larger bull trend for 1410, potentially 1450,” wrote BofA Merrill Lynch technical strategist MacNeil Curry in a note to clients Friday. “A close above 1328 confirms.”
