Strong push after Powell's mon pol statement today, looking ahead to the recent highs of 1439 but due a pause to avoid exhaustion.

That open drop last monday cost me $2100, if only i had the nerve to hold it for a couple of days, would have made a approx $1500 profit, but thats the game we play.

As the thread has been removed I can only go by memory but there are some important points.

The algo was working without stop losses, it was not shutting down trades that were going deeper and deeper into the red, the gold trade had lost 10% of the whole account in the last pic posted and was still climbing, never mind not losing more than 3% on a trade.

The gold price continued to go against, the algo was waiting for price to reverse again but what if it never did, the effective stop loss on the trade was the account balance hitting zero. 

That's why I asked if the algo had malfunctioned because such a system is guaranteed to blow the account, just a matter of time.

it seems there was a 1500 point stop loss, but im guessing it was hoping for a price reversal before that took effect. what that big jump down did do was achieve the take profit on the 4 old positions that were sitting at almost $4k loss on paper, but were triggered with good results in the end. the trade that lost me the 2100 was a manual placed order i put on, which then i panicked and sold instead of keeping, even knowing the charts were suggesting hold and wait longer term for the price to go up. but thats the game.

Thanks David, for telling what is a very interesting and revealing story, shame it got jointed or butchered by the lawyers but that also raises the point there must be other IG clients also using the system and they should have concerns. Especially around the stop loss, I think you said your account for the experiment was 10k and the algo let the aggregate gold trade go 4k into the red when price turned and did return all the way past the entry and into profit. If the algo was not malfunctioning then it's constantly walking a tightrope of death for the account.

Gold is coiling up with multiple recent support and resistance levels to overcome whichever direction it goes.

That 'game' sucks.  It's pure gambling and nobody but a billionaire with cash to burn can live that way.

Gold H4 and the coiling continues to get tighter but the break when it comes usually leads to a strong move, never quite sure which way the break will go but most chart patterns are continuation patterns.

Gold searching for support, may find it here at prior low 1415 otherwise it could be all the way back down to 1400.

Agreed - looking for breakout but will be range bound until FOMC with possible short term spike on rate decision. However, now that FOMC 25 point is expected (rather than 50 point) I expect gold to pull back to range again thereafter.

What do you think?

Sounds a reasonable summing up, FOMC this Wednesday and Powell unlikely to do the unexpected, don't think too much is expected from the US/China trade talks this week and NFP Friday, July's data doesn't usually throw up big surprises.

The call in yesterday morning's post for a retest of 1400 was spot on to the tick but missed the bit about then going on to test 1450, could be a waiting day today to see how the indices perform and what NFP brings this afternoon.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
