Gold price seems ready to continue its uptrend higher towards $1,260. However a short-term pullback at the start of the week towards $1,224-26 is highly probable. I expect prices to pull back and make a higher low without breaking below $1,212.

I'm a buyer on a pullback in gold and bullish as long as we hold above last week's lows. Breaking above $1,240 would confirm this bullish view. My next upside target in gold is at $1,260. Support is at $1,225 that coincides with the 38% Fibonacci retracement. Next short-term support is at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.
