Breakout for gold above 1260

I identified the shooting star candlestick in the chart. It indicates a yellow light for the uptrend. Caution is advised if you are trading the near-term uptrend.  There could be a test back to 1260 which would be normal. If you are trading the intermediate uptrend, I would hold the position unless there is a break below support around 1260.
