Gold Bullish or Bearish

Recommended Posts

The opposite.

 

After considering time, price, and pattern odds favor shorting when price moves up, not down. Down is too late.

 

Same in reverse for up trades.

what has price recently done

last few sessions?

Friday it poked its pinbar nose thru the 61.8% ret level - for a 3rd time recently. If you are mainly referring (as all good permabulls do) to the up days of Weds/Thurs price wasn't in position yet. Time was with 5 day up move after previous two 3 day upswings. Pattern was a little indecisive.

 

So from the way I look at things, time was ready, price became ready late Friday which makes 2 out 3. But entering once price has dropped is definitely not with odds no matter how I look at it.

wed ...thur.... friday session = higher lows higher highs. I define that as a short term uptrend and would be bullish until i saw it break south of the previous bars low..in this case...fridays (last session) low. Odds favor it breaking south of Fridays low on monday because of selling on fridays price rejection. So, how would I trade this? If it breaks fridays low i would take a chance on shorting and short once it breaks the low. If it continues on down during mondays session and tues i would just stay with the short until i saw a reason to jump ship. However, if it breaks Fridays low then reverse strong back up thru it i would ditch my position reverse and go long. Nevertheless, i say odd favor shorting this session (monday). Time will tell.

 

So what are you saying? Shorting opportunity is over and you would be long? Why would you go long when price action showed all that selling on fridays bar? I am not saying you are right or wrong as you may well be right (if you are saying price setting up to go up). It may well do so. I am just saying odds favor DOWN next session or two. But if it does the opposite of what I think will probally happen then i would be quick to reverse and go long as that would indicate bulls overcoming bears from friday and uptrend will probally continue.

 

So....if you would take position right now for mondays session what would it be? Long or short?

Minimum target of 1327.55 for gold this week coming up.

 

Silver likely to bottom around 19.468, if it hasn't already. And can lift off hardcore, taking it above $21 toward around 21.30 level.

Gold forecast for the week of August 18, 2014

The gold markets did very little during the course of the week, essentially going sideways. The candle looks as if it’s showing support at the $1300 level again, so it’s not a surprise to see that we ultimately went nowhere, especially considering that this is an area of such great interest. With that, we are not interested in this market from a longer-term perspective as far as trading is concerned. However, we do believe that ultimately the goal market will go higher, so perhaps purchasing some physical gold may be the way to go.

"Other investors are convinced that they can predict the future,

and I believe that's where our profits come from"

 

John W. Henry

if there is no attempt at predicting...anticipation..forecasting..educated guessing..then it is all a game of chance..a dart board..a flip of a coin..a what is to be is to be and that is to be cannot be known or calculated or guessed or probabilitized. So, trading is a wild chance with yours being as good as mine requiring no skills..foresight..and nothing to get figured out..worked up..or devised. Furthermore, PA...indicators...volume..setups...patterns all mean NOTHING...a waste of time...MEANINGLESS trivia that cannot help atol...might as well draw straws and trade..no need for charts...price action..setups..just need to know the present price..flip a coin..heads for UP tails for DOWN and place your bets gentleman.. Lets keep it simple. A quarter will suffice..A dime will work too. :rofl: :helloooo: :haha: :missy: :angry:

Here this chart will help us visualize PA. So, what did price do from the bar that indicated weakness and where i said the probabilities favored shorting? Fibs sometimes..many times...lie.

Gold will most likely head back up now over the next few daily bars. There exist a small chance of one more little push dwn before it heads back up but the odds favor it heading back up with or without another push down.

CME Group Lowers Margins For Gold, Silver, PGMs, Copper

 

CME Group is lowering margins for Comex gold, silver and platinum group metals futures, and the new rates will be effective as of the close of business on Friday, according to a notice from CME Group late Thursday.

They also lowered copper margins, but those will be effective as of the close of business Monday.

The exchange operator said the changes were the result of “the normal review of market volatility to ensure adequate collateral coverage.”

Margins act as collateral on futures trades. CME Group also changed margins for electricity, crude oil, natural gas futures and a number of other products.

In the case of the main 100-ounce gold-futures contract, CME Group trimmed the “initial” margin for new speculative trades to $5,060 from $5,940. The “maintenance” margin for existing speculative trades, plus all hedge positions, was cut to $4,600 from $5,400.

For the 5,000-ounce silver contract, CME Group lowered the initial speculative margin to $7,150 from $8,250. The margin requirement for maintenance speculative positions, plus all hedge trades, was lowered to $6,500 from $7,500.

Year-long consolidation in Gold prices should end soon. A strong trend period should follow once the symmetrical triangle is resolved in one direction. Volatility has decreased on weekly scale and this increased the likelihood of high volatility period in the following weeks/months. Boundaries of the consolidation stand at 1,270 and 1,360 levels. Breakout above 1,360-1,400 area will push gold price higher towards 1,525 levels. Breakdown below 1,250-1,270 support area will result in another downtrend towards 1,150 levels.

    • Came back to check on price after an hour of meditation, EU came within 3 ticks of target... Fascinating the ego brings up the story of betrayal, as if the market was out there to get me. I then reminded myself cool, this trade went over 2R. Even better yet, I acted consistently with executing my trading plan! Let the market do its thing. 
    • I took this limit long on the retest of the earlier 123 and support area. Target is near top of the zone. I notice that my target needs to be more mechanical in the sense that I may be influence to have a more/less aggressive target based on the results of the last trade. I have collected some modifications for the next batch of trades. 
    • Correction: the GU made it to 45 out of a 49 tick target. It was a 2.5R full target, not 3R. The EU long trade was 7:15am EST. I will refrain from getting up even earlier with the goal of not missing the next one. I notice after each trade, the mind, with the desire of wanting to experience a win, subtly pushes me to deviate from trading plan. My main concern with this set of 20 trades is build a greater sense of consistency in my execution and self trust. I realized the outcome of each individual trade absolutely does not matter. If I started to care about it, I am assuming that somehow I am responsible for the market's movement, which I am not. I am only responsible for following my trading plan, which can be adjusted after the 20 trades based on the stats I collect. 
    • GU closed for -1R. It made it to 2.8R but not quite the 3R. There was also a EU long trade that happened about 4:15am EST. FOMC is over now so let's see if we can get a nice trend setup today.  
    • Date : 22nd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd August 2019. FX News Today * FOMC minutes did not provide strong clues on the direction of rates. * However, the lack of a signal that the Fed’s July rate cut was the start of an easing cycle was enough to eventually weigh on Treasuries. * Asian stock markets struggled as investors continued to digest the implications of yesterday’s Fed minutes and trading conditions remained quieter than usual ahead of Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole tomorrow. * Yields closed at their highs of the session after holding cheap levels all session. The curve narrowed below 1 bp as the short end underperformed. * US President Trump continued to criticize the Fed Chairman, while suggesting the US may strike a deal on trade, but that didn’t prevent US futures from heading south overnight. * Topix and Nikkei are currently down -0.13% and -0.09% respectively, despite improvements in PMI readings that were counterbalanced by an as expected decline in the All Industry Index. * The WTI future meanwhile fell back to $55.45 per barrel.   * Brexit: Merkel gives Johnson 30 days to solve Backstop conundrum. * Johnson is today expected in Paris, where the tone is likely to be harsher than in Berlin, although both Merkel and Macron have stressed that they are ready for a no-deal Brexit if there is no agreement. * The UK curve remains inverted out to the 10-year area. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner *USDJPY printed a two-day low, at 106.28.The biggest mover, not surprisingly, has been AUDJPY, a forex market barometer of shifting risk-appetite patterns in global markets. The cross was showing a 0.5% loss heading into the London interbank open, and was testing one-week lows at 71.90. Next Support stands at 71.76 and 71.60. Resistance is at the pivot 72.20 level. Main Macro Events Today * Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 * Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. * Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing is expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMI is likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. * New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.
