FX:XAUUSD   Gold / U.S. Dollar
6932 89 79
It seems we have started a clear move down into the DCL. It should last for 4-5 days.
We have the blue double top which broke down its neckline (blue) and was tested back by a bear flag yesterday.
And the bear flag broke down in the night. We are heading down to 1300$.

Perma bulls are quiet now - I know they are reading me - so it's a good sign that they are freaking out with their longs and don't have time for the contrarian posts here.

The target depends on how fast is the move. I will post here when I think we bottomed.
This decline will also affect GDX             , GDXJ             wihich will have its compulsory decline now. And DUST JDST             can have a pop. Miners are terribly overbought. I think it's time to give a humble pie to the bulls with a scary decline in the following 4-5 days. I can read at a lot of forums that gold/silver miners cannot fall. Let's see are they untouchable or not.
Comment: Many asked about the BOE decision today (3 hrs from now)
I don't think anything can stop gold from the decline now.
In the next 3 hours we should print 3 green candles on the hourly chart.
There could be a good entry point for the shorts.

Comment: I think BOE will not cut today. USA futures are pulled up hard.
They are preparing for that scenario. So we could have a little pop in gold after the BOE decision.
Maybe 1235. And tomorrow the decline could continue again.

Someone asked:
Rate cut: gold might fall more. Or it could be in the price already.
No rate change: gold will pop for a few hours.
Comment: We tagged the 20 EMA on the daily chart. I think we have a little bounce here.
I closed half of my short positions at 1325.
snapshot
Comment: 2-3 days and we are at the 50 EMA. As you see it's not a freefall just a correction caused by the lack of the buyers. They will come in around 1300$.
Comment: Bouncing from the daily 20 EMA. Just as I thought the first dip buyers had arrived.
It's too early to go long now. This will be a serious DCL.
Comment:

Comment: Told you it's not over yet.
If we close near the weekly minimum next week we are going to see some real blood on goldstreet.
Comment: Let's see what Yellen's slaves are telling us about the July rate hike.
Comment: No better chance for a rate hike than 27th July. Elections are months away, stock markets are at all time highs...
Your analysis is always a important read, the rate this is falling now, we might see gold to 1300 level on Friday.

What about BoE cutting rates ? If this happen this morning in no time we will be up and far away from 1300 I believe.

That should mostly go to stocks and GBP, EUR pairs. Oil and Gold won´t benefit too much as this is BOE, not ECB or FED... Buy rumors, sell facts they say

Hello chartwatchers , do you see a small recovery within the next 2-3 hours and then a bigger falling or already direct further down until tonight?

Ok. I was just joking. This is almost impossible to tell...
Bulls are coming back from the sidelines slowly. Sooner or later they will buy everything there will be our bottom.
I think now the first buyers are coming in. So we need at least on more drop below today's low

Not permabull, but long-term bull. Picture says it. Probably good long entry point. Thx.

Sorry mate but why are you so confident that it's gonna drop again based on price bouncing from the daily 20 ema (if indeed that's what the latest chart is signifying)? I hope ur right as I'm short. Deciding when to exit is very difficult with this right now. It feels like I should have done it 2 hours ago and I suppose I'm not alone.

and i keep adding arpi is good but shorts gold too much dont try to beat the market play the market its simple. his other plays are outstanding. look at gss up 12% with gold down today
+1 Reply
This is true AL_G. We are in a bull market but we still making money on the short side. This daily cycle will not be easy for the longs though.
Most of the bulls are already in a position. SOme of them from 1260. Some of them bought just today. Some of them are long since Brexit night.
I'm just asking how will bulls survive a dip below the Brexit night?
Because that scenario is not out of the table. We have an FOMC meeting in 2 weeks.
The last chance for a rate hike this year. If Yellen comes up on a press conference with the idea of
a rate increase we can see some real decline. Miners are terribly overbought.
Most people think that gold and miners cannot fall. Just like in January : gold will be 500$ in a year. Every mining shares will go to bankruptcy.
Didn't happen though. This coin has 2 sides. The sweet is never so sweet without the bitter.

a more technically "ideal" version of your chart would be to long at 1305, the dip support on 6-28, and it would be hit on monday which would also be on your green big support trendline

i held through the drama of brexit. i can hold through this. not worried because there is a small army that wants in on this. Question? Would you rather be in our shoes or yours? and.... when you buy, will you hold?
Reply
"I held through the drama of brexit." You were long at brexit. Why was it so hard to hold it through?
We will see when your gains are evaporating day after day next week can you hold or not.
This daily cycle low will be a tough one. Before brexit we had a half cycle low. It was so hard that a lot of analysts still think it was a DCL.
This DCL will be a tough one. We will hear " gold is going to 1000$" on the last day.
What I buy at the DCL I will hold till the next daily cycle top. for 4-5 weeks.

I went long after non farms @ $1260. Gold went up $1320 and crashed going into brexit. i held through that. ill get concerned if we fall back into the bear channel. dont be the gold bug that buys into the bull market at $1400

Also looking forward to good earnings from the banks. This sector hasn't grown this year. As banks go up I expect gold to fall. I am not touching gold until the FOMC meeting.

DCL coming next week! It's like a slow motion fall...
Reply
The trend is up and gold might bottomed at 1320 ... i remeber a few weeks ago that price went down to 1232 then went up while Arpi's idea was that gold will fall to 1205-1210 DCL... this happened with me personnally. I think that gold is up and i recommend to buy 5% at each support level if gold goes more down. No sell anymore.
Reply
Too early for the DCL.
If you can hold during a drawdown to 1270-80 (it's not impossible...) then OK.
Everybody thinks gold is decline resistant. Time for a curveball.
I have a small short position only. But trust me this DCL will be a scary one.A lot of bulls will stop out at the bottom. And not will be able to reload again.

We both agree that gold is down ... my idea is that ... better to buy gold with lower prices than selling gold at a level where the price may bounce .. this level looks for me at 1320

Why at 1320? Cuz the trend is up

We shorted gold at the NFP. Last week . Price was 1370$.
When I post a chart with a "short" sign it not always means I'm starting the short there

All coming news are positive and pro-rate hike as expected. Why would one invest in Gold at these prices when banks are not easing, economy is doing good, markets are on a rally and Fed talks rate hike? - Arpi is right it will be a nasty scary fall in Gold.

If price action is similar today as it has been in the New York trading session, I'm wondering if the ticks close to 1322 will be the low for the day. JDST showing a little more resilience this morning (strictly based on its reaction to gold's pop up from 1322), but still incredibly weak (especially in lieu of gold's march down this week).

rate hike on 27th July: in this case GOLD short, EURUSD short and OIL short, correct ?
Reply
I am thinking about Sept as well. So July or Sept we will have a rate hike. Now markets are still fragile. I would say they need to build up bullish sentiment and then good for a rate hike in Sept. So my percentages for rate hike in July 40%, in Sept 60%. But 99% that it will happen in one of those months :).

I admit Yellen' slave is a very good one, but at the same time stronly believe that Fed gonna find a good excuse for no rate hike: what do you think about cyber attacks?

I'm holding into the weekend! JDST has been more resilient today and, if gold drops towards the 1300 / lower level, I'll take my chances some bulls are shaken and JDST holders finally see the type of move we've been waiting for. Definitely not holding my breath at this point, since, as you've highlighted, the performance has been bad and would indicate more lackluster performance!

COT points to lower prices. Large Speculators reduced Long positions and increased short positions. Looks like those who were driving market are backing off.Small Speculators are wrong - did the opposite :). Commercials did not increased longs so they anticipate lower gold prices. In silver commercials sold longs anticipate lower prices.

I never panic. But i think we open with a down gap tomorrow at 1310.
Do you panic?
It's a good sign that bulls are back here and celebrating. I've seen this many times before.
All I can say this is going to be a setious DCL with 2 curveballs. I dont think any of you - who is long now- lwill be able to hold through next week. I will be buying when these bulls are stopping out. :)

Hm.. following this closely and holding a short position over the weekend. If Turkey gets further out of control, I'm afraid we could open with a big gap up (1345 or higher during the Asian session) leaving a lot of shorts including me locked in their positions. @chartwatchers: whats your feeling?

Case closed. Erdogan is stronger than ever. This will be used up for a big attack on gold tomorrow at the open. 0:00 GMT.
They will shake out the bulls beginning of next week.

Hm, let's hope so. I'm a bit concerned Asian retail traders will drive price up during the night to 1345 or even higher. Let's see. I agree on the bigger picture we will go below 1300 before the next upcycle will start.

Arpi .. I know a Palestinian lady originally from Armenia called Arpi,, .. As for politics .. it is clear that Germany and Frace stand behind the coup in order to control the boarders with Syria and Iraq to fight terrorists. As for economics ... i think that the overall goal was to allow Turkey to join EU after Brexit knowing that people in EU are getting older and need young labor. As for gold ... recovering from 1320 to 1337 is a good chance for longs to bull if Asia confirms the transaction. I agree with your shorting idea only if Yellen gives signs for the next rate hike but gold could be reaching 1375 at time of yellen speach.

If there will be a rate hike it means bull for dxy and more bears for gold. How long do you think it will last? Or the two will go up hand in hand?

1-1.5 weeks maximum. Gold has to break below 1300. Dxy must break up from this daily consolidation box. I will post both charts on Sunday.

My 2 cents if the bears come out in force to preempt a bull coup, it will present a buying opportunity. Even though the coup has failed the result is uncertainty. Us/Turkey relations are in limbo and nukes are on the line. To me the coup was staged by the Turkish government to consolidate power. I think the US government realizes this and really doesn't know how to handle it. What do you guys think?

The world had changed a great deal in the last 15 years with regard to how governments can indoctrinate the masses through state television etc. The attempted coup followed the old format, lock down major transport routes, control the state TV and get s statement out. Although they managed to shut off social media, the masses have already formed their opinion of what they want through the day to day interaction with their friends + social media. The dinosaurs that attempted the coup have lost touch with this process and believed they could control the masses and gain their support as Turkey used to do.

Erdogan is deeply flawed and cocking the country up but it will be the people that drive the change and not a few Elite members of the Military, they severely miss-read the masses.

There might be a minor flurry in to gold from a few who are jittery but this time next week it will all be forgotten unless the Kurds start cause some trouble which seems unlikely, they have their hands full fighting ISIS. The Kurds will probably look for "Payment" ie land or their own state once the ISIS issue is resolved (5-10 yeaars?)

Gold does seem to be bullish now but with FED rate rise probably expected, S&P breaking out and US economy looking fairly strong gold looks to be destined for a fall for a bit. Maybe to the top of the bear channel. US seems to be doing a lot better than Europe, Japan as always is flat, China is now almost a grown up country (ie ~5% GDP around the corner). The Dollar may get quite strong over the next couple of years which does not seem to help gold.
