GOLD SHORT (PART 1)

FX:XAUUSD   Gold / U.S. Dollar
If you follow my idea about shorting gold             from a monthly reversal perspective, then now it is time to prepare for the setup. But first let me explain why we short gold             . You might wanna read this post first.
Monthly Reversal Likely To Happen


Anyways, take a look at the weekly chart above. As you can see, gold             has made a higher high (HH) at 1303 but then followed by a lower low (LL) at 1200. Therefore, unless gold             makes another higher high (HH) > 1303, this monster will have to go down. This is very simple technical analysis . Plus MACD already has had a cross over, another good technical indicator.
BUT, where we will short ?
The left structure shows that 1285-1290 may provide strong resistance. Plus the green downtrend line will also act as major resistance. This is the same downtrend line as in the monthly chart. (See the related post and chart).
I am going to look for some kind of reversal pattern when gold             reaches that price range 1285-1290. Once I find signals that gold             is going to run out of steam in that price range, I will place a sell order with stop loss @1305 and take profit @1180. If gold             breaks 1303, it will make a higher high so this trade will be stopped.

Gold             has not reached 1285-1290 yet, but it will likely do. I know there is a downtrend line @1265 on the daily chart still I think gold             is going to make a fake break out of that downtrend line, which would make everyone think it's going to break 1300 and going much higher but then it will suddenly turn down. The FOMC next week can be a game changer. Even if Fed does not raise rate, I think gold             is pretty much priced in that idea. Like they always said "buy the rumor, sell the fact".

So this is just a plan. I am going to watch the price action and will make a call. So stay tuned for part 2.


Comment: This daily chart will show why 1285-1290 will act as major resistance before 1303.

The reasons are:
- The top of the left is around 1285
- Big red candle around 1285-1290 after gold reached 1303 and started going down. Price tested again but failed. This was a true break out to the downside 1200.
Comment: Gold has reached our important resistance area 1285-1292 before 1303. Let's see the price action here. I'm looking for some kind of candlestick reversal pattern or some formation here. As of the moment I only see a rising wedge in 4hr chart that might signal a very short term top but it does not guarantee a large pull back. A daily reversal pattern is more meaningful here.

Trade active: I have opened 1 short position @1286 based on three components:
- Price has reached Fibo Retrace Level 78.6%
- Price has reached monthly downtrend line and not able to push over it.
- ab = cd pattern on 4hr chart.

If we assume this impulse wave as a corrected (B) then wave (B) will not retrace more than 78.6% to 88.6% of wave (A).
I will add another short position if price reaches @1292. All stop loss are above 1303.

Do not quite agree with you on this chart. But your posts are all sound. Keep up a good job!

Thanks. I welcome all comments and ideas. I will see how things turn out for gold. But I surely will watch the price action and will make a call to short or not at that price range 1285-1290. If I dont find any reversal pattern at that price range, I may not short this market. Just keep watching and stay tuned.
