Gold now looks to $1,960

Rising open interest coupled with Wednesday’s positive price action in gold points to further gains in the very near-term. Of note, however, is that the precious metal navigates the overbought territory (as per the daily RSI), leaving the door open for a corrective move sooner rather than later.  On the upside, the next target now emerges at the 2021 peaks around $1,960 per ounce troy.
