Gold rose +5.10 to 1234.00 on very light volume, while silver moved up +0.02 to 17.43 on very light volume also. Trading ranges were narrow and volume was light; it was a positive but not very eventful day.
Gold rallied in Asia, dipped in London, and then rose in the US into the close. Print was a “closing white marubozu/NR7” - a narrow trading range day where prices closed at the high. Candle code sees this as mildly bullish. The volume has been declining as price has risen over the past few days; that's generally a bearish sign.
