The gold market exceeded 1444 this morning but a late day pullback is underway that should keep gold from closing above it. With Options expiration due on Monday and prices up all week -- this is the time if they are to bring gold down into the Monday timeframe. Support is the 1430-1435 area today ---- with additional near 1420. The lower purple line and the two dotted lines are weekly support. In sum --- if they boyz are planning lower for options expiration -- today is the preferred day to begin the pullback. A close above 1444 would target 1450-1460.
