God and Silver remain in flux.  I can't trade it here.  Only a breakout of over head resistance is tradable long for me as another large leg down is still very much on the cards.  Plenty of other bett

Well we all know what happened to Gollum as a result of his obsession...

Gold could be making a double top turn just now, far from conclusive but there is a scenario which fits this and on the 1H chart there is NMD and a decent turn.  It was worth a speculative Short with very close stop in any case.  Meanwhile the buy the dips boys are still locked into their programming, just look at Tesla...  And USDJPY traders seem in a hurry to close the price gap and test the LT resistance trend line.  While Gold has been bullish, Silver has been much more reluctant.  I remain reluctant to buy into this Gold bug crazy until Silver also breaks out, in fact if that happens then Silver is the trade to take rather than gold IMO.  Would a Gold/Silver bear phase require a Stocks bullish breakout?  Probably but not necessarily.  Would a Gold breakout here require a stocks bear move.  No but surely in absence of any major disaster scenarios a big breakout/turn in Stocks/USD would be required?

If we do see a relief rally, or especially yet another buy the dips rally to an new ATH on US large caps then Gold and Silver may fall heavily.  Already there is a case for a technical top out and turn, especially on Silver, which remains within a consolidation Triangle.  Gold looks like it may be turning after a relief rally to Fib 50% and key horizontal resistance.  Could be an interesting afternoon...

On what basis?  What is your system to decide that?


It's a temporary set back, investors are selling gold to keep themselves afloat.

It's still well above its 50 day SMA

They'll be back :)

By summer.

As so you are not saying don't sell Gold so much as wait until it bottoms and buy again?  I would echo that but I would say sell now and buy when it bottoms out, which will be much much lower than people currently anticipate.  Just look at Silver go...

Gold continues to run but if the coronavirus end of the world narrative wanes and it all proved to be a media driven collective madness and stocks rally then Gold may yet produce that strong bearish move I have been expecting.   Silver remains stuck in a LT consolidation and I can't see Gold getting to the extremes being talked up until Silver runs much hotter and stocks crater.  There are too many gold bug bulls for the rally to be sustainable without a major crisis, which we do not yet have.

Therefore the higher high on Friday (or maybe a little bit more early next week) could be signalling the end for now.  The fast bearish candle towards the end of the days trading on Friday may be an indication of some profit taking to come.

From a technical perspective I see the following:

  • A 1-5 up to the current highs and another 1-5 on the final rally phase.
  • NMD on all chart time frames (weekly; daily; 1H) and over bought oscillators
  • Non commercials net Max COT bullish
  • Spinning top candle on daily and strong end of trading bearish candle on the 1H on Friday

I personally don't think for one minute that gold is safe or practical, but I recognize that other people do - I'm not trying to be cleverer than them, I'm trying to follow them (and get out before the stampede turns on itself) :D

Daniel Lacalle, chief economist at Tressis tells IGTV’s Victoria Scholar that the opportunity for gold looks more attractive for international investors using currencies other than the US dollar such as the Brazilian real or the Turkish lira. Meanwhile he says that it does not make sense for investors to buy gold and sell silver or vice versa and that the two precious metals should be invested in side by side with the same directional view.

That sounds sensible.

    • Hi   I had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte
