XAUUSD: 1 AT MARKET & 2 POTENTIAL GARTLEY'S

FX:XAUUSD   Gold / U.S. Dollar
Obviously we want to be very cautious going into tomorrow's trading session which features our monthly Non-Farm Employment change aka the Fireworks show. but was digging through some different markets tonight and noticed the abundance of opportunity setting up on gold             . The orange Gartley pattern is technically completed but features a very shallow "D" leg which significantly increases the risk and reduces the reward of the move. With multiple harmonic moves and Fibonacci confluence featured in that area it's worth             taking a zoomed in view on a lower timeframe inside that "Killzone" and waiting for an alternate entry technique to see if you can grab a better price. Perhaps something to watch and not trade going into Friday.
Thank you for all your charts and info on trades - never traded this will keep this on my radar - need to be extra vigilant because of upcoming NFP

No problem, I'm with you I don't touch anything until at least 15 minutes after the announcement. Typically I'll just call it a week or head down to the range bars for some lower timeframe action

I had one guy today who claimed to take like 50 pips from the Euro, expecting to have the same effect tommorrow, on the combination of 2 positive US news. I only thought "good luck with that".

Good luck indeed, a while back I tried every strategy I could think of or research to try and trade these reports and at the end of the day, I couldn't find anything consistent. It was just a straight up gamble.

At what time will the NFP announcement be?

A great started book for harmonic patterns is "Trade What You See" by Larry Pesavento, after that is Scott Carny's Harmonic Trading (which is a little more complicated) O fcourse there is everything we offer at Trade Empowered (my shamless promotion) as well :-) but the books are a great start

those are the only 2 that I've read dealing with fibs and patterns. Most of what I read are based on trading psychology

Why does the Gartley have such a shallow D in this case? Is it because of BC extending past the 0.618?
+1 Reply
It's due to the depth of the A-B leg

I'm riding the downtrend on this one on my demo account trying out some stuff from the harmonics @ Fib levels lesson of the Pro Trader course.
Target is set at 1242, a little above the 1.618 extension, with some support structure in Januari & Februari at that level (right in the kill zone you defined).

Nice, in my Live Trading room I always say when looking for places to take profits "think like the other trader" good stuff!
Reply
A new analysis shows me the downtrend is most probably to continue to an even 1200

That's right at the bigger bullish Gartley as well, nice looking level for the next potential long opportunity

Maybe the Cypher on 4hr will give some insightful clues

Hey Bekkerm, just wanted to say that what you have there is not a valid Cypher pattern as the C leg is too shallow

i believe that the economic releases can be predetermine by the market also, i haven't started to work on it, but it's something that jumped out at me this week. that is my next course of study, which i don't think will be that difficult.
