Gold With the Labour Day national holiday in the US today, it should be a quiet day for the precious metals. However, even though a firmer dollar and a bout of profit taking pulled gold back from $1000/oz last week, it only retreated as far as $986/oz before climbing back to $994/oz. This is a strong indicator that gold can maintain its bull trend. The next level of resistance is $997/oz with $1,005/oz and $1,032/oz thereafter.
