Gold still targets the $2,000 mark

The rally in the precious metal remains well and sound so far. Friday’s uptick, however, was on the back of shrinking open interest and volume, opening the door to some corrective move in the very near-term. This view is also underpinned by the current overbought conditions of the metal. In the longer run, gold keeps targeting the psychological $2,000 mark per ounce.
