I want a 1730 or above close..

Technically, gold futures bulls still have the overall near-term and longer-term technical advantage. The gold bulls’ next upside price breakout objective is to produce a close above solid chart resistance at the November high of $1,739.40. Bears' next near-term downside price objective is closing prices below solid technical support at the November low of $1,672.50. First resistance is seen at the overnight high of $1,730.00 and then at $1,739.40. First support is seen at the overnight low of $1,713.40 and then at last week’s low of $1,704.50.
