Thought I'd make a thread specifically for day traders of gold.

Looking for a ascending wedge break out if it goes past 807.50?

Edit - broken out, let's see how strong it is?

been meaning to trade gold futures.. but have not got around to doing much.

trouble is that its scary going either direction.. cos it can get highly manipulated in either direction..

unlike the dow where its very clear the medium term outlook is DOWN

so UF, if it breaks above 807 it may jump much higher you say?

Your new thread is a great idea Uncle and I have a question.

I used to buy my gold and silver bars over the counter from Johnson Matthey in Melbourne. Too far for me to the Perth Mint so does anyone know where I can do this in my home town?

Cheers, explod

I don't really know, just putting out some ideas of possible short timeframe trades for anyone interested. The current pattern of sharp sell offs followed by slow rebounds is tradeable, right down to the minute if you study the charts ie there are mostly certain times of the day that things happen. If these times line up with chart patterns like wedges ect, bollinger etc then there is a probability of a big move, either way.

It's nothing fancy & I'm sure the established technicians might have a chukle
but as it's a manipulated market you just have to know which way it's getting manipulated, long or short??

I'll post some time points where things happen when I get time;), although you can do this if you have intraday timescale charts.

Another ascending wedgy breakup from $790. Arbitrage opportunity with some of the large goldies like NCM as they seem to lag the spot for a good 5 minutes.

Maybe. I think charts are being manipulated anyway. Corner deli only interested in big mark ups so probably not if what you indicate is correct.

Good spotting.. and within that small wedge, by the looks, an inverse H&S.. at the bottom of a large falling wedge. It all looks rather bullish really, depending on what happens around the upper bound of the big wedge.

Not friendly, Kauri! of all traders, goldbugs are the most egocentric. but to survive, they have to constantly boost each others optimism. for them, such a thing as a negative goldstock does not exist. physical gold ... that is the sacred cow! you want to never speak up against it, not even in jest.

After a slow start today there now appears to be a rejection and test off the Kumo on the 15M time-frame.

Yes, getting interesting, approaching some support levels again. Nice little waterfall to$758, back long at $762. Similar to NCM to $2030 today.

Always cognisant of the prevailing negative bias though.

Arco, what charting/trading package are you using, thanks.

Both of you are a little off in my view. Have been away for a few days and rarely trade of late. Recently diagnosed with cancer and will shortly be under the knife.

As for gold it has been a very good investment for our family. If you look at the 5 year chart it is very much holding the bottom line of the pennant, and the uptrend, as it has done since 2003. There is no fundamental reason to tell me that will change. My health dictates that I can no longer day trade so you have the upper hand, if that is what you enjoy, but for me gold is a safe place for my money.

The US dollar is enjoying the Wall Street/Bloomberg ramp (and that can be backed up, but too much for this short post) and the further it goes up the more spectacular will be the fall and then the rise of gold.

As I have said many times on the main gold thread thread, gold will be held down on the Comex untill the new US Administration have taken over full responsibilities to cop the demise of the world reserve currency, that's the niceties of politics.

And there are indeed negative gold stocks in my view, (and that view is shared by other gold bugs) read the thread properly.
