yeh @TrendFollower,  that's the most obvious support level on the chart and so that's where buyers can be expected to band together and try to rally. Though the news re; trade talks continues to be good though guarded I think the big news last week was the 2.6% US GDP beating the forecast 2.2%. Match that with US PMIs consistently in the 55s-60s shows the US economy is stronger than thought.

This was supposed to be just a throwaway thread but Gold just got a big boost from the very poor China exports data.

Agreed @elle, with trade talks in Beijing today and reports yesterday they were down to line by line fine tuning Gold needs to find solid support.

Gold bears continuing their attack today on this strong support level having been beaten off yesterday. This 1280 looks to be in serious trouble.

As the article below points out, the fact that retail are scrambling to take on longs is probably the kiss of death for gold.

The big push through may well have been more of a big pull through as the 76.9% retail net longs had their stops taken out. (From the article linked above in this mornings post)

"Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 76.9% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.33 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.3% higher than yesterday and 9.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.4% higher than yesterday and 4.5% higher from last week."

Gold looking to test 1280 from the under side, if 1280 becomes resistance gold will have no choice but to look lower for support.

Gold has bounced back above $1271. Are the Bulls buying a bargain?

Gold made a strong attempt to get back above 1280 but beaten back, interesting given the current strength of the USD and Oil.

Gold slides back up through 1280.65 to 1286.30. A close above 1280 could lead to further gains next week.

Interesting 1:00 pm hourly candle where the US GDP beat sent price straight down to 1273 but was then bought back up again just as quick.

Interesting point, always going to be very subjective as the description will always depend on what you are using to view the object with and how you are going to interpret what you are seeing. For instance the chart below is using a triangular moving average with atr bands and though looks similar to your BBands shows a very different picture, neither is right or wrong, just different. You pays your money and takes your choice, price is not obliged in any way to respect either of them.

To go a step further, having such a large selection of tools available and personal choice as to which to use at any particular time one of the most important but difficult lessons to learn is being able to discern when to completely ignore what any of them might be telling us.

Reuters article claims gold will be heading to 1322 this year and 1369 next.

https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-metals-precious-gold-poll/gold-poised-for-gains-as-global-markets-brace-for-turmoil-reuters-poll-idUKKCN1S80UV

Why?

Does anyone actually think that if the international economic system collapses, they will be able to visit the gold vaults and cash in their bits of paper for real gold?  Not a chance.

Worth updating the daily chart and gold retested 1266 yesterday and got a bounce but the hourly inset doesn't look so convincing.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
