Gold’s previous three-hour candle closed at $1,296, confirming an upside break of the bull flag pattern – a bullish continuation which often ends up accelerating the preceding bullish move.  As a result, the safe haven metal could rise to $1,310.  

A move above $1,300 would also establish a higher high, further reinforcing the bull view put forward by the flag breakout.  

The bullish case, however, would weaken if prices violate the higher low of $1,290 created yesterday.
