Gold prices have swung between gains and losses since Tuesday, and on Friday they climbed from the 55-day (1,077) to grow up to 1,088 by the end of US session. During the Asian trading on Monday the bulls are hoping to push it higher into the 1,095 area and, possibly, up to the current January high at 1,113 in the medium-term. Bank Holiday is the US should curb on Monday, while many catalysts in face of global market instability can be absent today. Still, supported by positive daily technical indicators the metal is capable of retaking 1,095 in the next 24 hours.
