Gold prices rose moderately today , reaching in this two-week high as traders began to return to the market after prices fell to a six-month low . We add that the weakness in the stock market has also stimulated demand for the metal as a safe haven . Who sent the precious metal to its largest weekly increase since October , after fixing its biggest annual decline in 32 years.

Analysts warn, however , that the upward momentum in the first days of the new year may last only a few weeks, after which prices continue to decline, and will close in 2014 another drop . Recall that during quantitative easing by the U.S. central bank have been favorable for gold , keeping interest rates and stoking inflation fears . But with the improvement of the U.S. labor market and other positive signs in the economy , the Fed decided to fold stimulation, which negatively affected the attractiveness of gold.

She believes that gold prices will meet resistance at 1244 dollars per ounce , which can be tested for strength later on Friday .
