As you know, gold dropped down through 1300 two weeks ago. That gave gold bulls a mild heart attack because the story for gold rising includes a little bit about “rising.” Not “falling.” A touch of a difference there. And 1300 is a key pivot point for gold; it can’t go up without staying above 1300. (just to drive the point home)
But the world is an ephemeral place, where most things don’t last forever.
