HUI Closes Strong – Gold Price Clears First Resistance Hurdle

Two quick charts to note some developments in gold.
The first is of the metal itself.
A couple of things worth mentioning. First of all is the CLOSING push past the 100 day moving average. That will attract the technical or chart-based trading funds. If they are short, they will cover; if not long, some will come in on a signal like this.
Secondly – the price closed above the first level of chart resistance noted down near the $1225 level or so. That is the best CLOSING price in over one month.
