This chart pattern could be extraordinarily bullish for gold | MoneyWeek

Gold was buoyed in early trading after a yesterday’s slump with the U.S. dollar going into the European session weaker. Price action has remained largely unchanged since early May this year with the consolidatory move developing within various technical patterns.

The long-term weekly chart shows this weeks candle approaching a key inflection point around trendline support (black), which has been propping up gold prices since mid-June 2019. A break below could trigger a selloff and will coincide with the break of the 100-day EMA (yellow) as well.

The daily spot gold chart shows prices hovering around the key inflection point at $1800.00 which coincides with the longer term formation. Currently, the breakout from the points to further downside towards subsequent support zones.

Zooming into the short-term daily chart, we can see that the symmetrical triangle (black) remains in play while prices continue to track within the bear flag (blue) chart pattern. Traditionally, a symmetrical triangle breakout can occur either up or down but with the arrival of the bear flag, our bias does skew towards the downside. The bear flag represents a continuation pattern supportive of the preceding short-term trend (bearish). I will be looking for a confirmation break below flag support but more importantly, trendline support and the psychological $1800 level. This being said, current market indecision is highlighted by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on both the weekly and daily timeframes reading around the 50 mark which favors neither bullish or bearish momentum. This breakout is likely to occur on the back of a fundamental catalyst in the days/weeks to come but since we are approaching the triangle apex point, I do not see this being too far away.

    • No doubt the impact of FTX crash has created a negative impression among crypto enthusiasts especially centralized exchange users. Of course FTX wasn't the first CEX to crash but its occurrence came as a shock looking at the position the crypto exchange occupies in terms of ranking and being the favourite cex for derivative trading before the sad event. This has questioned the integrity of CEXs and a lot of users have embraced DEX while others opt for a more secure and transparent CEX. Talking about security and transparency as a mechanism to make users have complete trust in the remaining CEXs, two things comes to mind and that's "Proof of Reserve" and "User Protection Fund". This are obviously a good indicator and post FTX development but how effective could this be looking at the numerous crypto currency exchanges out there. Among the top 10 ranking CEXs, only Binance and Bitget has a veriable proof of  users protection fund of $1B and $300M respectively. " Source from Nansen" Although some exchanges like OKX, Huobi and Bybit also claimed to have user protection funds but it is not publicly verifiable which of course raises eye brow about the integrity and transparency of such claim. We can't actually do without CEX because we need it for our daily trading hence the reasons why more effective measures needs to be taken to secure users funds. Though Binance and Bitget seems to be on the right path but it's also important for this CEX to declare their Proof of Liabilities because FTX also did about two audits before it collapsed. A lot of users are still skeptical keeping their assets on CEX due to fear of the unknown but could this development from Binance and Bitget restore trust and confidence back to users?
    • Yes, there are may time-sized cycle. I will bear in mind your data. It is very good. This is going to be an interesting year forward! All the best.  
    • Here's some more clues as to what the markets are doing - Remember, this just would not work if markets were random This is Gann's Square of Nine (9) - He used it to work on both price and time It's basically a spiral of ORDERED numbers around a circle of 360 degrees, divided into sections  If you look closely enough you will see if you pulled number "1" up and towards you, the form would create a PYRAMID  As you can see in this simpler Gann Sq of 9 below, we can split the sq into GEOMETRICAL harmonics, in this case this is a cardinal cross Get the reference number point "61" and work through 65,69,73,77,81,86,91 etc - you can follow the sequence easily enough and see that those prices are following the natural order sequence of those cardinal point cross points...................... Here's those points in TIME (MONTHS) from the Oct 2022 LOW on the SP500 market - As you can see MANY MANY hits to the month and then the market reversed to some degree - KNOWLEDGE of this method would of allowed you to place those dates on your charts in 2002! YEARS in advance and this is just one method of many that pinpointed the 2009 low from a TIME perspective  THT
