Gold Technical Analysis: Flag breakout favors move above $1,300

Gold's previous three-hour candle closed at $1,296, confirming an upside break of the bull flag pattern - a bullish continuation which often ends up accelerating the preceding bullish move. As a result, the safe haven metal could rise to $1,310. 

A move above $1,300 would also establish a higher high, further reinforcing the bull view put forward by the flag breakout. 

The bullish case, however, would weaken if prices violate the higher low of $1,290 created yesterday.
