Gold Testing Breakout Price Resistance… 3 Times A Charm?

Gold prices have made a strong reversal to the upside… and it came out of a quick downturn (catching traders leaning the wrong way).

Today’s chart looks at a longer-term “weekly” view and highlights the current setup. Still work to do for precious metals bulls, but worth putting on your radar.
