So again. Key reversal at a good place acts as a key reversal.
The question are we heading to the DCL, ICL or maybe HCL? - I cannot answer right now.
What is sure we are free falling from the Head & shoulders pattern.

The purple line shows the target counted from the H&S pattern. (1241.68)
I also put the FIBO : I think the 61.8% retracement is realistic. (1248.32)
And watch the blue dotted trendline: I would like to see a tag there.
So the take profit area is in the green rectangle .
I'm also watching the daily chart's EMAs. But first let's how this day closes.

PS.: of course they had to break out the price at the Asian session.

Comment: The 4hrs head and shoulders pattern is just too big not to be noticed. By now everyone has realized the daily key reversal - which is working- or the H&S pattern - which broke down- and the weekly swing -which is in place.
There is no time frame where we don't have a reversal.
It doesn't seem to me that it will turn back. Time to toast the dip buyers.

Comment: Just a few thoughts regarding Brexit.
I studied a bit the circumstances.
The voting will be on Thursday. The voting will be closed at 22:00 GMT Thursday.

In a few minutes we will have the exit polls. That will be very important.
The first datas will show how close will be the votes.

The majority of regional outcomes will be declared between 2:00 and 4:00 AM (GMT).
By 5:00 AM we will have almost all of the datas.
All the big banks will be standby. Banksters will be working. So if you are positioned better to prepare for Thursday night because there will be extreme volatility between 1:00 and 5:00.
Coffee, girls, snacks - get them ready by Thursday night because you will not have time to jump down to the corner supermarket.

Comment: I have a strange feeling that while the short players - me also - is waiting for a gold collapse early morning when the 1st results are coming out. But the volte results are getting priced today.
So we have to be very very careful. We might have to get out every gold short position today.
Before midnight GMT.

Comment: If we break below 1260$ today afternoon and we tag 1250 or 1240-45 I will close my shorts.
I will be watching the miners action as well. I think miners will print a gap open today wit hsome kind of panic. Here in the Metal trade I dont have miners positions but I have some on my personal account.
If I close those positions I will post here also as I know a lot of you are short in the miners.

It's hard to say now. We might bottom at Brexit. And this would be a half cycle low in the new intermediate cycle's 1st daily cycle.
Or if we break down 1200 than that would be the ICL .
In july - August gold will soar.

Building on that: no matter what the outcome thursday, would it make sense to see how far it goes tomorrow and then see if a long setup opens up? Could be safe to assume that gold will go up again pre-referrendum, because of fear and uncertainty? And then close long before the ref. again. Possible?

wouldnt recommend that cause you would need a realy large stop. the scenario is possible but i expect large volatility the next 3 days so if you are not alrdy positioned in gold i wouldnt open up now. just think about it if we maybe gain 10usd today its quite possible that this gain will get crushed right away cause other ppl want to position short before the vote. its quite possible that we get a giant candle tomorrow with spikes in both directions and im talking about a maybe 80 usd candle maybe even more. it will jump with every bit of news on the vote like a kangaroo on speed.

Great to see Gold breaking lower, but frustrating for those of us in DUST not to see this translating into more upside. If a Bremain vote is being priced then is their a danger that folk won't sell miners (e.g. GDX) as they know Gold likely to rally again shortly? Presumably today's likely to be best day to get out of DUST too? Thoughts / comments appreciated...

Oil should drop soon to bring CAD on board to help DXY. Don't loose faith guys. This Golds down move is for long time - month(s) to go. They already making case for July rate hike rhetoric.

Not much from here. it is just consolidating around 50% fib. now think if we bounce from here - that should be a strong move - around $20- $25 dollars. Such move in current circumstances when people don't believe that UK will leave (look and DAX, NKY, DOW) can only be triggered by UK vote to leave. Which geopolitical and economically shoot not even in the foot, but in the head. Impossible for UK to leave. Therefore we go down after breaking that $1256 support (50% fib). Maybe not going to happen until vote result.
