Last Year’s Close at $1318.70 is Major Support - Gold managed to eke out a small gain during the first quarter of the year, mostly supported by the weaker U.S. Dollar and the volatility in the stock market.

Innes said prices were also supported by a weekly report that there was a drop in activity of drilling for new oil production in the United States.
