gold futures; The gold market hit a 27-month high this week amid keen safe-haven demand due to trader and investor anxiety that is presently gripping the marketplace. Gold bulls are in solid technical command, there are no early technical clues to suggest a market top is close at hand, and the path of least resistance for prices will remain sideways to higher in the near term. The yellow metal bulls are now eyeing pushing prices above solid chart resistance at $1,400.00. Stay tuned!
