Chart of the day


This month, Gold has jumped 8.3 percent on its way to the largest monthly gain in two years and the first consecutive gain since August.

US consumer confidence fell more than forecast in February as home prices rise at a slower price, both signs that the US recovery is lacking momentum coming into the new year. This mixed with unrest in the Ukraine and emerging markets has led to global uncertainty which has buoyed the price of the precious metal.

As the move continues traders may eye off key resistance at 1361, a level which may be broken coming into next weeks NFP's.
