We were waiting for today's gold pop.
The Commitment of Traders report ( ) is published at the close of every Friday's trade and it always shows the Tuesday data. The formula for Blees rating uses the Commercial Traders net contract holdings at the date of the current report. We inserted the Blees rating into the .
If we accept that the bear market in gold ended in 2015 December we have to accept the fact that the Blees rating must be used with the commercial net short position and open interest in the bull market...
In the bear market the Blees rating at 100 meant that price slowly turning up and we will have some kind of a rally. When these rallies topped the Blees never reached the 0 level usually it was turning down from 30-40, and sometimes already from 60-70.
In 2015 December and 2016 January price was in a range for 2 months and the Blees were near to 100 for weeks. It was a very sign. At the same time the commercial net short position was at extreme low levels: below 100k. For a few days it was near to zero!
From the 1st of Feb to 22nd March the net short went up : it was between 100 and 200k.
From the 22nd March to 13th June net short positions were between 200 and 300k. But there was an interesting thing at the last 2 weeks of May. The net short position dropped by 100k in 2 weeks...
Commercials were closing their shorts in the first correction. At that time gold printed its ICL.
From the 13th of June to 27th Sept the commercial net short climbed up above 300k. It was a record high level.
In July-August- September the commercial long positions were coming down slowly from 470k to 410k but price was just in a range. And when we had the steep drop at the beginning of October commercials immediately closed 25% of their short positions in a week. The net short positions dropped by 100k by this week Tuesday...
At the same time the blees popped to 35 . Though at the bear market a 35 blees were not an important number for a rally to begin based on the 30th May Blees rating jump and commercial net short drop we will have a strong rally again.
The rally will shift gear at that point. DO NOT TRY TO SHORT AT RESISTANCES.
This is going to be a powerful rally this time.
I hope you enjoy...
the fleece of small players.
THey've stopped out the shorts at the range breakout.
Now they are entering withthe shorts at lower prices again in the last big hourly candle.
Though we are just testing back the daily swing level.
If they wanted a lower low could have been a lower low in the last 8 days.
I few people are getting nervous again.
I think there is nothing to worry about guys. We are just bouncing from the daily 10 EMA and I think by the close we will be around 1268$ : closing above the 200 SMA.
It's very important if natural buying pressure could win again this paper manipulation today.
So far today we crushed last before one resistance on the way to 100.00, breaking out upwards of what originally looked like a bearish flag! 50MA crossed in a bullish manner its 100MA counterpart last week and the 200MA yesterday. The indicators also don't look very bearish. With all the respect, it's hard to see a strong bullish case for Gold in these circumstances...
