Gold soared to a new all-time high on Friday as it extends this year's rally. Profit taking tempered early gains and the mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends this year's rally into uncharted territory, upside targets will be hard to project. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
