The precious metal is trading in a bull trend above the main monthly simple moving averages (SMAs). In the last four months, it has been trading in a bull flag and if the bulls can have a convincing breakout above the 1560/1600 price zone, gold could rise towards the 1730 and 1900 resistance levels.
