Gold was up on Monday morning in Asia, with investors turning to the safe-haven asset as the dollar strengthened and talks over the latest U.S. stimulus measures stalled.

The GOLD market remains short term bullish, but a close over 1946.0 is needed to continue advances.If trade struggles to extend over 1946.0, be prepared for minor setbacks. Any corrective trade should fight to hold inside last Friday’s range to maintain the upside momentum forces of the drive. A close under 1882.0 signals for a downturn to test 1841.0.
