Gold still targets $1,800

Gold prices advanced to the $1,790 area on Monday, although it ended the session with losses. The move was accompanied by shrinking open interest, indicative that a knee-jerk could be in the offing in the very near-term. On the upside, in the meantime, the yellow metal continues to target the key $1,800 mark per ounce troy.
