Gold Price Chart: Four-hour

 

The bulls built onto Thursday’s upside break, extending the upbeat momentum into the first trading day of 2021.

 

The precious metal has rallied as much as $20 so far, with room for additional upside despite the Relative Strength Index (RSI) trending in the overbought zone, at the momentum.
