Lightspeed
1. The speed of light in vacuum, commonly denoted c, is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics.
2. Lightspeed is a point-of-sale software provider based in Montreal, Canada.
3. Lightspeed, is a 2006 superhero film directed by Don E. FauntLeRoy.
4. Lightspeed was gold's rally on the 21st September.
Happened exactly what I was warning bears last week : we will give back many days of short gains in one day.
So today we erased 6 days of short gains. By the end of the day only those bears were at break even who sold their shorts on the 2nd day of this decline. I can tell you that these bears are below 10%. The most of them sold the shorts later. This is how bull market works. Slow suffering decline to support zones and powerful rally out of the DCL or HCL             to the next resistance.
The problem in selling short here is that bears psichologically in the obsession of the short trade. Even if they can close the position in time and make profit they are unable to change the direction and catch the big move.
In this case the best short traders entered at 1340 and exited at - lets say - 1306 . The profit is 34$ in 8 days. Gold             rallied today - 1 day!!!- 30$. But these short traders are not in this rally. Some of them will be waiting for a pullback to enter a long but the pullback will never come. Some of them will try to short and gives back 60-100$ to the bull as we are breaking to new highs. So that's the way love goes.

In this case we printed a HCL             at 1308. It was a tough HCL             : almost took out the DCL low but finally the DCL was holding. In the metal markets you have to know : bullion banks and smartmoney will do everything to knock you out of position. The only thing you can use are the cycles. 9 from 10 times the cycle is helping to survive the drawdowns. Unfortunately some long traders were stopped out at the exact bottom. :(
Some of them were margin called some of them were freaking out. If you trade in the metal sector it's very important that you mustn't be 100% invested. If you are trading on high margin impact big players will knock you out in the whipsaws. So try to have a smaller position (20-30% of the total capital) .

Today we rallied to the bear market trendline . I think tomorrow the dollar will continue its decline in the lack of japanese inervention . And gold             will test the upper trendline of the consolidation (blue).
And here comes the trick. As many times in the past worked the selling short at this trendline this is the time when it's not going to work. We are going to break the blue trendline and print a higher high.
The rally above the consolidation depends on how strong is the dollar's decline.
RSI and SLowStoch needs to get overbought and I would like to see a MACD crossover also. Why? Because it's a bull market and before a serious decline we need to break to new highs.

Comment: We just sliced through the bear market trendline.
Bears will be trying to short at the red arrow (1345-46) as it was working well in the past. But not this time.

Comment: As the dollar bounced from the trendline -hopefully last bounce- gold is a bit depressed again. Gdx and gdxj is falling on extremely low volume. Dont freak out.

Comment: We are above the bear market's weekly trendline and turned down from the blue trendline.
Bears had entered the short positions. Volume is average. Big players are still in position.

Comment: Gold is in a clear bull flag. As soon as the dollar breaks down the daily trendline
gold will break out of the flag to the upside.
Maybe will not even wait for the dollar weakening...

Comment: Some people are freaking out again.
I don't see any reason to post right now because I think gold is more confused than any of us.
We are in a multi month consolidation since brexit.
Sooner or later we will have the next leg up.
I'M not planning to stop out my position , because when I stop it out at the breakdown from the range, price will reverse and start a powerful rally to the upside direction.

Comment: We had a 25.000 contract dump a few hours ago to break the resistance at 1300.
So we are in the panic selling stage of the intermediate decline. Will last for 4-8 days.
Someone is really working hard to push gold price and miners down to get a very good entry point.
I think the maximum of this decline could be at 1260 where the 200 daily MA is.

Comment: The dollar is printing its final reversal from the 200 SMA.
And gold is still supressed. I'm 100% sure this is an artificial move of the banks to shake everyone out of long positions.

What's the exact rationale behind your expectation of the subsequent decline to specifically 200 SMA?

It's just a long term plan. But the ICL will hit the 200 SMA.

I think first bull run towards $1,500 - $1,530 then back to the 200MA around $1,260-$1,285.. spring 2017 ?? But along the way towwards $1,500 we should get a minor pullback from $1,415/1,430 down to $1,375...

Nicely done Arpi! This is why I keep telling everyone not to short a Gold Bull in the middle of an Intermediate Cycle.. You might luck out every now and then but it's not worth it! Someone once argued with me that a good trader knows how to do both (go Long and Short).. but I would argue that an experienced trader/investor knows when to sit on the sidelines and wait for the optimal time to pull the trigger -- that would require discipline. Discipline, ladies and gents is more important than timing a perfect entry :) Unless of course you're trying to impress someone at a cocktail party, Lol!

I like your stuff but don't think it will work out this time. I believe that we wont break above the blue wedge. at least not until 1st week of October. And even then it will be left translated and starting its cycle down. Japan and Europe, IMO, will intervene in the next day or two. So lets wait and see.

Hello, Excellent approach. I have really impressed by your skills and kind learning signs. Fully agree that it is not time to short yet but to be honest not fully believe 1270-1280 level. What if prices are going higher and 200SMA with it. Could you look at the setup, would be very interesting to know what do you think about it. Best wishes to you for this day and good luck in all of your trades! https://goo.gl/a3TYrl

This is how arpi works. He's passionate. He's a deep thinker. He's a fantastic analyst because he's mastered some behavioral patterns. Like anyone he can be wrong. But most of his unfavorable positions do come back in to profit. If you agree with his analysis and can take an unfavorable position for a week to 10 days, you'll do very well alongside him.

Thanks Arpi!

The price stalled around this level, 1333, thought we would see follow through today. It popped, yes, before the news but after the news it flattened out. Is it because they continue to say a hike is coming just to keep a lid on things. Trying to make sense of this is not easy. Logic doesn't always seem to apply for this market. I guess it must have been what was said during the news conference. Same shit, different day. The only hiking they will do is with a football. Then punt the ball which they've been doing since last December. Ant thoughts?

Nice one. You expect the rest to be a fast cycle reaching a new high before going into an ICL right? But take a look at the previous bull-run. Look what happened after the 2nd period of consolidation. In other words; take 295 days from the start of each run from the bottom and compare. Last time it ran for quite some time after its 2nd consolidation/ICL.

It was once said many weeks ago that it won't go to 1310, but it did. It was also said that to buy positions around 1330 as the train may leave the station. It was also said that it will hit 1400 few weeks ago, but it never did. The market moves, the way it moves. Holding on to my positions cause you never know when it will break out of consolidation.

PS. Hedging at the same time.

My strategy is useless against interventions. ANd the ECB is clearly pushing up the dollar as they are officially printing.
But trust me sooner or later the US dollar index will break down the trendline and then gold will pop.
You might make 10-20 bucks as you are shorting gold if you are lucky, but sooner or later a day is coming when the dollar breaks down the trendline and gold will pop 40-50$ in a day wherever it is. If you are short you will give back all of your gains you made the last 3-4 months in 1 or 2 day.
