Gold Tops $1,300 an Ounce: Bullish or Cautious?

Updated on

Nothing seems to be slowing down the gold market, even when speculators take a step back.

Bullion has been on a tear, with futures last week posting the biggest advance in two months.

The money managers were more fortunate when it came to silver, taking their holdings to the highest on record just before the metal had its best monthly advance since 2013.
