Gold - Don't Just Own It, Trade It - 6/17/2016

FX:XAUUSD   Gold/U.S. Dollar
74 0 2
We are seeing really good trend trading in both highly volatile and lucrative commodities - Gold             and Crude. We are actively trading both commodities from long as well as short side by leaning against good support / resistance levels.
There are many investors out there just happy owning gold             and hoping for something good to happen to their investment. Of course if you have ton of extra money to park on 'long term' bet and if you are living in a country (e.g. India ) with depreciating currency against US Dollar             then that might make sense. Because every decade or so, we are going to see parabolic spikes in Gold             and silver             besides your usual price appreciation due to currency devaluation.
But for others, who are good at technical trading and understands the fundamental argument about Gold             , there is much more money to be made trading Gold             rather than just stashing it.
Levels in Gold             are very obvious and strategy is also very simple. Look at 1100, 1140, 1180, 1200, 1240, 1260, 1280, 1300, 1400             , 1500 and you will be able to point very conspicuous support / resistance levels. Now depending upon from the direction Gold             is approaching these levels, take a trade against those levels ! Of course you need little understanding of technical analysis here because for example, during yesterday's rally, you just don't jump at 1300 and short Gold             because there is 200 WMA lying at 1314             . So you need to spread your short closer to that. But these are very simple things for a technical trader and we don't need to spell out everything here.
So as usual, sticking with our short gold             strategy, there is no surprise that we are short here and first target has already been reached at 1280 and now looking for 1260. But we will be wary of holding short amid Brexit though. Besides now it seems like Central banks are at the end of their wit and something is telling us that Gold             want to fly to 1400             ! In that case, this might be the last short in 1100 / 1300 range and we are prepared to get long from 1260.
