Having said that, at this very moment we are rather in a situation where we are facing an overbought level for Gold on either 1H and 4H. Therefore a correction may be very much on the agenda.
You could have entered long at 1240, but now it is too late.
Baring in mind the level of the indicators, 1280-1285 may be a good level to enter the market, but of course you should choose the right direction, the good timing and have an eye on indicators such as MACD, Stoch William%R and CCI. Best.
