Gold Bullish or Bearish

Recommended Posts

To all members

I am sorry

It is my fault :(

I posed the question about Coffee on this Gold thread.

And my friend Patuca is just trying to help.

And bear in mind , he is nearly 72, so he might not realise the implications. ;);)

regards

bobc

The problem is you posed it to someone who has diarrhea of the keyboard. :puke:

 

I see nothing wrong with a little ES or a little Crude but what does coffee got to do with Gold?

I don't really understand what's the problem between you two....if there is any :)

 

Hi Mircea,

I see you are from Romania, so you wont understand that our comments are just about making fun at one another .And at the same time perhaps adding to our knowledge.

There is no problem between Patuca and I. :cool:

But Patuca has lots of problems with the other members..... hes a tough old goat so I dont think he is too concerned :roll eyes:

I am his last friend :rofl::rofl::rofl:

kind regards

bobc

Dear tradinglizard

 

if lizards can help each other then traders can too. we can share and learn..most do not like what i share...it is strange as i only attempt to predict and post beforehand trades. I also make humorous remarks that i guess they don't like too well...when my predictions are on target they seem to get meaner with me.....wonder why? .....one recently said i have diarrhea of the keyboards but i pay no attention to him as he lives in Boca Raton which translated means "rats mouth" but in slang the word raton means "cowardly thief" so basically he lives in the town called "mouth of cowardly thieves". so, i have many places to go and visit and many rivers to fish in but i will not be, any time soon, visiting this town that literally means "mouth of the cowardly thieves". ....:rofl: :rofl:

Dear trading wizzard and all members and viewers ....before i leave i wish to clarify something. I am simply saying that the poster who apparently lives in boca raton is living in a town called "rats mouth". That is what it means in spanish. Boca is mouth and raton is rat. But raton also means cowardly thief, in slang, in spanish. So, in the slang it (the town) can be called "mouth of cowardly thieves". I am not in any way referring to the poster personally but simply to the name of the town. I am sure many decent people live in boca raton one of which i am quite sure the poster is one of those decent people....even if he said in a round about way that i had diarrhea of the keyboard...just clarifying...what i said, was in jesting...i am trying to be nice..it is hard...especially when ones position in the ES is taking on water.....but i shall return after the plunge of the indices which i am quite sure will happen according to the secret code...the burst of irrational exuberance from the fed info today about the market will subside and the plunge will take place soon....:hmmmm: ..at least i hope as i have no stoploss...never do what i say do and never do what i do...:helloooo:

Bob did you realise that this link coincided with your post number 666 :roll eyes:

 

:2c: I only needed to look at the King World news home site - 5 articles listed about the shocking news behind gold.....how its going higher......no need to read further for me. But I did....according to their business section the only business in the world concerns gold :doh:

Another one trick pony with a fixed set of beliefs. Which is all well and good, but it does not help trading gold. It merely reinforces a SHTF belief......

 

Me thinks they might be better spending their time doing other things before the world goes down in flames.....but hey - each to their own. :)

 

Patucca will be back - he is probably just stashing his gold somewhere....dont know why if he is 70 years old though. :)

The Secret Sign That Gold Has Bottomed

 

I wonder if somebody with a bit more experience than me in Options, would care to comment on this article

thanks

bobc

 

too many variables to tell in half these things - never stops people from trying i guess....

plus - snbc and 'secret' must be right ;)

 

Quick and dirty analysis....

they say gold bulls are selling puts and hence crushing volatility ......which means they must be bullish and hence its near a bottom.....

I could reply.....

...put sellers are willing to buy gold at lower prices (but not here) and are prepared to sell puts to accept delivery at these levels. Which would mean they might think its simply a good yield play or are willing to step in at lower levels.

If they were really bullish they would be more likely to buy calls and get real upside - this would increase the vix......

 

Its all really a guess.....but if enough people think that this is a good level to put some risk on by selling puts then it could create a vacumm due to a lack of buyers, and put covering down below - might be even more bearish if they are wrong.

Impossible to tell as we dont know their motivations, their hedges, their previous positions.

All we know is that volatility usually ebbs and flows.

 

as the writer says... "Traders have begun selling put options at inflated premiums, because they expect a turnaround in the gold market to occur. " - maybe a relevant question is - are the inflated premiums there for a reason ? Its all about risk transfer really.

 

:2c: - Without the normal doom and gloom - people are worried that the bankers are a little bit hooked on the crack of QE, or the economy is or dont know how to really get off it - indecision never a bearish gold sign.

Hi Patuca

I am out....no position

Half day in New York affects my market + no market tomorrow., and half of the US will take an extra days leave on Friday

I am getting a possible Major TURN on the US $ from Friday.

What would affect the dollar?Gold would do the opposite.

Still looking for a bottom.

TRYING TO FIND A BOTTOM

Will all the technical traders have a look at my chart.

The last time the RSI fell to -20 , it bounced back nicely.

Could I use this to find a bottom if it bounces again off -20?

Thought I,d also repost this for the disbelievers

"Even though the price of gold has fallen 25% this year… it's getting more and more expensive for banks to borrow the precious metal.

 

Large bullion-dealing banks and central banks will often loan gold on deposit for cash. Reasons for lending gold vary from plugging a supply-demand gap to a bank manipulating its balance sheet before reporting numbers. But as an incentive to lend, these banks usually receive a small percentage fee as part of the transaction.

 

But right now… the rate folks pay to borrow gold is at a post-Lehman Brothers high. The one-month gold leasing rate has risen from 0.12% a week ago to 0.3% today – the highest since early 2009.

 

If banks are demanding greater incentives to lend out their gold… this suggests that regardless of what the spot price of gold says, they want to hold onto their gold. Demand for physical gold is returning…

 

"There has been some borrowing interest recently. It's related to the demand for physical," Joni Teves, precious-metals strategist at UBS, told the Financial Times. She noted the Chinese are paying $40 an ounce above benchmark London spot prices for physical gold."

Probably around $1350 there will be a lot of selling and new short positions.

 

Hi equitrader

Is that your guess, your view , or your opinion?

Or are you really going to go short?

What I posted over on Forex F...... on July 7th:

 

"Here is the daily fib clusters I see above the current zone: 1295-1304 most probable for a reversal, 1323-1334 and 1363-1372".

 

Have to see if it holds. Thinking it won't and will be ready to pounce if yesterday's (Thurs) low is taken out. Only thing is Fridays doesn't usually have a wide range so might have to wait till next week.

    • Date : 23rd January 2021. FX Update – January 22 – USD Holds gains & PMI’s. GBPUSD, H1 The Dollar has firmed up on a safe haven bid with the reflation trade having come to a firm stop. The USDIndex lifted moderately to a 90.25 high after basing out at a nine-day low at 90.05. The US currency gained only marginally against the Euro and Yen, but racked up gains of around 0.4% to 0.5% against the Pound and dollar bloc currencies. EURUSD ebbed back from an eight-day high at 1.2178, before recovering to 1.2188 following Eurozone PMI data, while USDJPY lifted to a two-day high at 103.70. Global equity indices corrected from record highs in the cases of the main US indices and the MSCI Asia-Pacific Index. Base metals are also markedly lower. Lofty valuations and an increasing level of concern about the Covid situation have warranted increasing investor caution. Covid restrictions have been implemented across northern China, and the new highly transmittable variant of the SARS-Cov2 coronavirus — aka the British variant, where it was first detected — has shown up as far afield as Beijing and Australia. The EU looks set ban travel to the UK, while the UK has already imposed much tougher international travel restrictions. The rollout of the Covid vaccinations globally has also been proving to be bumpy. Elsewhere, cryptocurrencies dropped sharply again, which will only add to their reputation for being too volatile for serious institutional investors to touch. Reports that the Biden administration has tighter regulations for cryptocurrencies on its ‘to do’ list have been driving cryptos lower. Bitcoin was showing an 11% loss on the day, as of the early London morning, at $30,860 — which is nearly 26% below the record high seen earlier in the month. The virtual coin earlier traded below $29,000 for the first time since January 1. Eurozone Flash PMI readings declined as lockdowns were strengthened and/or extended. The last minute Brexit deal may have helped to prevent a worse number for the manufacturing sector at least, and the decline in the Eurozone manufacturing reading to 54.7 from 55.2 was actually less pronounced than feared with the number still pointing to a solid pace of expansion. Services meanwhile are clearly suffering. The Eurozone services PMI dropped back to 45.0 from 46.4, driven largely by a sharp deterioration in the French reading, which fell to 46.5 from 49.1. The German index held up better than feared and dipped only slightly – to 46.8 from 47.0. The overall composite for the Eurozone came in at 47.5, down from 49.1 at the end of last year and supporting expectations for a technical recession over the Q4 and Q1 period. Across the Channel UK PMI data showed a woeful record for Services and came in much weaker than expected. The headline composite PMI plunged to 40.6 from 50.4 in December. The median forecast had been for a 45.5 reading. Pronounced weakness in the service sector drove the composite lower, with services bearing the brunt of the lockdown across the UK nations, which has been the most severe since last year’s ‘mother’ lockdown. The prelim services PMI headline dove to 38.8 from 49.4. The prelim manufacturing PMI fell to a headline reading of 52.9 from 57.5, which was near the median forecast for 53.0. Much of the manufacturing sector remains open, despite the lockdown. The drop in the composite reading, while sharp, is still less much less severe than was seen during early spring last year. There are hopes that the UK’s world-leading vaccination programme will start to see restrictions lifted from as early as mid February, by which time all the most vulnerable groups should have been vaccinated. Cable trades down to test 1.3650, down from yesterday’s high at 1.3745 and today’s open at 1.3729. Always trade with strict risk management.
