The price of gold after the rebound from the support level at 1252 broke through the level of 1265 and returned to the level of 1278. At the moment, the quotes reduced after they were unable to overcome the inclined resistance line. In case of its penetration, the price can reach the level of 1300. The fall is limited by the level of 1252. We expect the price growth in the medium term, but admit the possibility of falling the price in the near future.
