Bearish on Sterling Bullish On Gold

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Whats the most efficient way to trade on Gold  in sterling  (not dollar)?

The objective:  to profit from Gold  going up or standing still in dollars if the pound weakens against the dollar

i wouldn't complicate it, do one or the other.  "Know" where gold is going and trade it

fluctuations in GBPUSD wont make great difference in short term.  I use ETF goldx3 leverage (Boost Gold 3x Leverage Daily ETP), however be warned, if you keep trades on for long time "fees" will eat into it, try and get in out on max weekly basis, have targets and get out, know your entry points, remember "well bought is half sold"!

Also remember, ETFs subject to trading hours and closed on US holidays, can be a bit scary if you forget..

You can do this in a SIPP or an ISA, that will give you the tax advantage.

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
