Gold prices have resumed rising this week in the face of the ongoing Russian war on Ukraine, breaking out of a short-term range to the upside.

The war now appears most likely to continue for some time, as Ukrainian forces are beginning to receive a more consistent supply of arms and are effectively combatting Russian forces on several fronts. Domestic Russian opposition meanwhile appears to be growing, including in the political and military elite, while U.S. and NATO leaders appear content to let a war of attrition continue.

In this environment gold prices still seem most likely to move higher, back toward $2,000 and possibly higher, with a short-term initial targe around $1,980.

Should the NATO position change, the scenario would shift dramatically. Should NATO mount either humanitarian or military efforts it would likely precipitate Russia retaliation.

A third alternate scenario would be that Russia ups its taunts of NATO, uses chemical weapons against civilian populations in Ukraine, or further escalates its assaults on civilian targets.

Either of those two alternate scenarios would be likely to push gold higher faster.
