Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

Recommended Posts

I see Gold and Silver's price action being on the upside at least until the Brexit situation is more clearer and the US Shutdown matter is closer to resolution.

This could be next week to be honest but also next month!

I think Gold and Silver long plays are good trades during this period. They could still go wrong but with sound risk management (stop losses) and a clear exit plan one should be able to profit until sentiment changes and the trend reverses. We never quite saw a trend reversal on the last correction so this is resuming the rally. However, I have seen such moves entice buyers and then large drop comes so be aware and careful. 

What are your email id sir.

@gautamhait,

I am not going to give anyone my personal e-mail address. You are more than welcome to discuss things with me here on the IG Community where it is open and transparent and if I were to give incorrect advice or mention something blatantly wrong then I can be challenged on the IG Community in a professional and respectful way. This will enhance your experience and add value to your IG Community experience.

If you really want to discuss something privately with me then you can send me a message like a lot of other traders and investors do using IG's messaging service. I was just responding to another trader just now using that facility.

I do find it at times difficult to understand your posts as I am not familiar with your writing style and have to make far too many assumptions. 

May I ask why you would like my e-mail address?

@gautamhait,

I am afraid I find it extremely difficult to assist you. You do not seem to understand anything I am posting to you and you keep on asking the same questions. 

I will not be giving you my e-mail address. That is final. You can message me like all the other traders on IG's messaging platform. It works very similar to e-mail. 

I do not know how far it will be as I do not have magic powers and nor can I tell the future. I cannot even suggest to you to buy Gold long term as I trade on price action and like I have openly said I do not like Gold at all as an investment. I strongly feel there are better long term investments out there based on my risk tolerance than Gold over the next 10-20 years. 

Let me ask you this @gautamhait, how do you intend to trade or invest in Gold on the long side? Are you going to physically buy Gold, invest in a Gold ETF/ETC, invest in a Gold fund or investment trust, spread bet Gold, CFD Gold, futures market Gold, invest in junior Gold mining companies, etc? 

Also @gautamhait what country are you from? I clearly get the impression you are not from the UK which is the country I am from.

@gautamhait,

Yes I am long both Gold and Silver. What I am doing is taking my profits and re-entering rather than leave my positions open and pay constant daily charges even if the move in Gold and Silver is against my trades.

I am expecting a blue day today in both Gold and Silver following up Friday's move. Also due to the uncertainty in the markets and the Brexit vote tomorrow and I envisage a lot of day traders opening short positions. Also negative news is slowly being trickled for China and its economic performance and profits by the media. I think equities will be going down today and hence feel that both Gold and Silver will have a blue day today.

It is 5:00 am and both Gold and Silver are in positive territory as the Asian markets head towards their close and the EU markets head towards their open.

Gold is holding up rather well above the $1300 level and Silver is showing trend weakness but tomorrow could be a different animal altogether with the Brexit vote.

Gold and Silver are both continuing to make new higher highs and new higher lows which is an extremely bullish signal in my personal opinion. 

I think once the 200 day moving average curve begins to slope upwards it will attract a lot more buying pressure on the long side. The key is to identify trends to trade and attempt to get in as early as possible.

Disclaimer: I am long both Gold and Silver but have adapted my strategy to day trade them both thus taking profits on a daily basis.

I am trying to avoid going long on those days when they are both clearly trending downwards for the day. I am not shorting them as the longer term bias for the trend is upwards so will happily sit on the sidelines on those 'red' days. Of course there will be days when I make daily losses but the key is to continue trading whilst the longer term trend is upwards as on the balance of probability the odds should be slightly more in my favour of making greater profits than losses during this strong trend.

@elle,

Some nice predictive modelling there.

Testing assumptions through price action during a trend can really help even if your assumption is wrong. It helps gather valuable information and data. So one must not be worried or scared about being wrong and must embrace losses as they will occur. It is about minimising those losses.

It is 5:00 am and for the first time in a long while I think Gold and Silver can move upwards even if equities are rising. 

Silver hit $15.98 and I think it should hit $16.00 at some point today. Gold in my opinion will attempt over the coming days $1320. There is now a strong momentum behind Gold and Silver without extremely large volume. With potentially the volume still to come I think Silver could go as high as $20.00 in the coming future should economic uncertainty remain.

Gold and Silver are both holding up rather well and have not lost any of their recent gains yet. There will be a sharp correction (drop) make no mistake but they both seem in bullish mood at the moment to shine!

Gold and Silver have both flexed their muscles this evening once the US Federal Reserve announced it was not going to raise interest rates.

Both are absolutely flying. It is amazing the impact the US Federal Reserve can have!

I hope many of you are trading both Gold and Silver in terms of 'short term', 'medium term' and 'long term' at this moment in time? It does not matter if you are a day trader. You can day trade both Gold and Silver at the moment. If you are a longer term trader then you can also take advantage on the 'long' side. These opportunities in the likes of Gold and Silver do not come that frequently so one must pull the 'trigger' when such chances arrive.

Gold and Silver have not yet given some of the recent gains away which bodes well. They both seem to be holding up rather well.

I think the news either positive or negative released by the US today should help Gold and Silver to either continue to move upwards or take a small tumble until the next leg upward resumes. 

Fascinating stuff!

Gold and Silver offering the pullback (necessary medicine in a healthy bull market) to investors and traders alike to enter this journey.

Using 'Oscillators' can assist in establishing an effective entry point.

Trading in Asia will be subdued due to Chinese New Year.

Gold and Silver have both started off rather well (5:00 am - UK time). The price action will tell us if this is an upward resumption of the trend.

Thanks what instrument can we use to trade it medium term? Options or futures?

Guest Paul,

On IG you can trade Gold via Spread Betting like I do or CFD's.

You can also trade Gold ETF's and I think but not sure possibly Gold ETC's. Then there are Gold mining shares as well. You can use all these for medium term but you must trade what is correct for you. ETF Securities offer ETC's but there is counterparty risk with such products so beware.

I think as long as Gold can stay above the psychological $1300 price level then it will be extremely positive and bullish for Gold going forwards. 

US-China delay in trade talks may support Gold's next move upwards.

One would expect Silver to correct more than Gold as that is the nature of their relationship. What will be interesting is how low Gold and Silver go before it continues its move upwards?

I cannot see (though I could be wrong) any trend reversal occurring in both Gold and Silver until two main things are resolved one way or another. One is Brexit and the other is US-China trade talks. Both are in the air and both have unknown outcomes. This will support Gold and Silver prices from seeing their upward trends reverse in my personal opinion. Let us see if the price behaviour of both supports my opinion or it rejects it.

It seems that both Gold and Silver are about to continue their next leg up after that recent very healthy correction. 

If the coming week brings uncertainty existing in the Brexit outcome and no resolutions to the US-China trade talks then I anticipate that both Gold and Silver will have a positive week from a price action perspective.

At the moment Gold seems to be holding above that $1306 level and Silver that $15.65 level.

Gold seems poised to make a move on its next leg upwards and seems to be leading the way with Silver trying to play catch up. It seems Silver is following Gold's lead. 

Gold finished around $1321 and Silver $15.74.

It seems Gold has just broken its previous recent high.

It still seems intent on making new higher lows and higher highs.

Silver will have plenty to catch up on but Gold is certainly taking the lead and playing the tune in this rally rather than Silver. Historically this tends to be the case more often than not.

    • On another thread which @cryptotraderstarted @wjw22 commented that Bitcoin is not money. Money is something that can be transferred or used in exchange for goods and services. Bitcoin (though not widely accepted - in fact miniscule acceptance at this stage compared to FIAT) can be exchanged for goods and services in certain places across the globe.  They then go on to state that Bitcoin is not a store of value. These are just words. Since Bitcoin's inception in 2009 if you invested £1000 of your hard money into both Bitcoin and Gold then Bitcoin would have proved to be the better store of value than Gold. This is even after numerous 70% to 80% corrections! Bitcoin is not only the best performing asset in the whole world in 2019 but it is the better store of value since its inception. If @wjw22 has any evidence to support otherwise then please do provide.  They then state Bitcoin is a Ponzi and a pyramid scheme. Again these are just words. The European Commission, UK Government and many large Government and corporations are looking at Cryptocurrencies and how it can be applied in certain jurisdictions across the globe. We are at a very early stage. These things take a lot of time. Evidence from a credible source needs to be provided to support such statements as otherwise they are just words which originate from bias, ego, stubbornness, etc.  @cryptotrader, in case why you are wondering why I am not responding to your thread, it is because I want to avoid any aggressive discussions and arguments. We all have different levels of understanding and experience in this area. We all read different literature and research papers on this area. We all have different levels of knowledge in this area. Another reason is because I have done what you have a year or two ago in either this thread or the Blockchain Trilogy thread, cannot remember and it is pointless unless there are balanced arguments presented with credible evidence from credible sources.  People first compared Bitcoin to the Tulip Mania. Now that it has blasted through that people are now comparing it to the Internet boom and bust. Why must we compare it to anything? The Bitcoin boom and bust and boom again could be new future being created without any copying of past historical incidents. Future performance does not have to be based on past historical performance. From time to time new history is created that is different from the past. Bitcoin is a new asset and a new revolution which will create a new history and a new future.  Now @cryptotrader your thread was about Bitcoin specifically based on your title. Not about Cryptocurrencies in general. Yes a lot of Cryptocurrencies are junk. If Bitcoin's store of value is laughable then its store of value performance in terms of protecting capital and increase the value of the capital is astonishing when compared to Gold in the same period of time since Bitcoin's inception. Someone is buying Bitcoin hence the price is going up. A normal person does not need buy one Bitcoin at $13000. They can buy a fraction of it using FIAT money. That is the beauty. Countries like China and Russia want to end the US Dollar being the Reserve Currency. It is unlikely that the world will go back to the Gold standard. In this coming 'Digital Revolution' Bitcoin is one of the favourite to be groomed as the worlds first digital reserve currency which is not linked to any one specific country like the US. During US-North Korea, Bitcoin went up more than Gold. During US-Iran tensions, Bitcoin went up more than Gold. Therefore times are changing. People and countries do not want to store their money in something which can be manipulated by central governments and priced in US Dollars. Times are changing and power is shifting from the west to the east and countries like Japan have embraced Cryptocurrencies. I respect the views of others but what tends to happen is that if someone is negative towards Bitcoin then they highlight the negative and do not offer a balanced argument. Likewise if someone is positive towards Bitcoin then they do not highlight the negatives. Even I am guilty of that. I accept there are negatives and flaws in Bitcoin and other Crypto's.  
    • @cryptotrader wrote (in Silver Bullet thread): "I've always thought that cryptos are completely unrelated to other asset types which is why they're so difficult to price. Everything else has the inter-connectivity between themselves (Fed IR effect USD 'value', which knocks on to USD denominated assets, which leads into equities, re-positioning etc) but always thought crypto is a world unto its own. Linked to cost of production - electricity, CPU costs etc." I think the notion that crypto is something apart from the rest of the financial world is a concept that pervaded the first internet boom; the idea that the internet was going to change the nature of business and society by providing free access to everything and there for traditional business models would fail.  Instead the first internet boom failed, well hardly surprising as all those budding entrepreneurs forgot that you have to make money by charging for goods or services to become a millionaire (although a few clearly did purely off the back of selling out early enough - which is a watch out now on crypto for anyone invested for the long term).  Out of the ashes rose the second internet (or tech) boom but interestingly the winners were those that effectively adopted traditional business models (i.e. the need to make profits and generate positive cashflows - duh!).  The share prices are now massively over inflated of course but that is just financial market forces (the markets can remain irrational longer than we can remain solvent, kind of thing) rather than anything intrinsically wrong with their business models.  Now that these businesses are profitable and hold masses of cash (masses!!!) they can withstand a major downturn, perhaps better than some other more traditional sectors, and be positioned well for the eventual recovery.  It is this recover where I think we will see the really discontinuous tech disruption, the next leap forward.  This is what happened after the first internet bubble burst.  It is after the crash and clear out that we will see Crypto, or rather the blockchain type technology, become mainstream in terms of replacing physical cash, this is the end game, not some nirvana of a non FIAT collective new age hippie dippy free of politics currency (or set of currencies) that everyone will use free of government control - you might as well just howl at the moon as think that is ever going to happen. As regards you comment about Crypto being apart, well how do you buy or invest in Crypto?  With cash of course.  And how it is currently "valued" in the markets?  In USD, hmm... The real problems at present for Crypto, and the reasons it will all end in tears until the next iteration are (for me): There are too many Cryptos, until it is mainstream (i.e. the tech backing electronic FIAT currency, which is the root of the concept of currency right back to the earliest days of non precious metal currency (i.e. the right to exchange a paper bill for gold) it is the wild west. Ordinary people are not using Crypto as a currency, it does not have wide adoption It will not get wide adoption until it is better understood and backed by something normal people recognise as sound (i.e. governments) There isn't sufficient liquidity for wide adoption and consequently the price of a bitcoin is too high for a normal person to use it (similar problem with Gold BTW, which is why I prefer Silver for true disaster insurance and consequently hold physical silver coins) The price is too high and too volatile, it is in the hands of speculators - hence it is a mania The idea that Crypto is a store of value is laughable.  When the $£!& hits the fan people will buy Gold and Silver and USD and Yen, things they understand and can cling to in an uncertain world.  They will not buy bitcoin.  Even if they wanted to how can any normal person buy bitcoin at $50,000 per coin?  Barking mad the whole thing - but this is what I expect at the end of the cycle so carry..!    
    • Unfortunately i am no longer able to continue giving these updates. Alas our fun journey ends here, my fingernails are intact @Caseynotes, lol I will be here still in the forums. Thanks all for your input. DJ
