Gold Price Forecast: Gold Weekly Evening Star Casts a Large Shadow

GOLD TALKING POINTS:

  • Gold prices just completed an evening star on the weekly chart, a pattern often followed with the aim of bearish reversals, hypothesizing that a top may have been set.
  • The hurried momentum from early-March has now been entirely erased and Gold prices are trying to buoy around support in the 1900 zone. Shorter-term keeps the door open for bullish scenarios but longer-term retains a bearish leaning due to that bigger-picture reversal formation.
  • The analysis contained in article relies on price action and chart formations. To learn more about price action or chart patterns, check out our DailyFX Education section.
Gold Price Forecast: Gold Weekly Evening Star Casts a Large Shadow

Gold prices are starting the week at a key spot of support, just above the psychological level of 1900 that was re-tested on FOMC day last week. The low in Gold printed at around 2:20 last Wednesday, so after the statement release but just before Chair Powell took the podium to begin the press conference. During the press conference, buyers jumped in as shorts quickly covered and prices pushed right back to the short-term resistance level of 1930. While buyers were able to extend that move up to 1950, they weren’t able to negate the evening star reversal pattern that’s built on the weekly chart.

The evening star pattern is followed for bearish reversals, driven by the idea that price action may have set a top.

GOLD SUPPORT

At this point there are two notable longer-term levels that are playing a role with short-term price action, and for sellers, they’re going to want to see these levels dealt with first before adopting bearish momentum strategies. The first level is helping to set support this morning and it’s at 1919, which was the yearly high until the recent bullish breakout. And below that we have the psychological level at 1900 that came into play very briefly last week. Sellers pushing below 1919 opens the door for a test of 1900, and sellers pushing below that opens the door for a move down towards 1845, where there remains some unfilled gap from February trade.

    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™ 
    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco
