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 topping at 1429 on this recent rally and will look to test that if indices continue to slump.

Gold daily sees a break of the late June high 1439 that appears to be now acting as support.

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.

    • Mercury, of course, how you label your wave counts is entirely up to you. Corrective waves (according to EWT) are in the following form: ZigZags, Flats (Regular & Expanded) & Triangles. Complicated corrections are usually a combination. A common one is a double Zig-Zag. Triangles can often found in wave 4 or B but never wave 2. Motive waves are usually pretty simple to spot even for a novice. The problem always occur with corrections in my experience. Knowing the substructure count is critical in that respect. ZigZag (5-3-5), Flat (3-3-5), Triangle (3-3-3-3-3). There is often an alternative count (although one will always be preferred) and only subsequent price action reveals which is correct. There are a few rules, but really not many, and some guidelines. With respect Mercury there is no rule nor guideline that I have ever seen that says "the move does not penetrate above the previous high" for a corrective wave!! For those that don't have the time nor inclination you can subscribe to various services. In the hands of an expert, when combined with Fibonacci ratios, trend lines and sentiment indicators it is, IMHO, a powerful tool. 
    • Actually I thought Corrigan was pretty good and pretty much spot on in his general take on a multitude of economic topics, there was no political agenda and of course it was his view so to get balance -er, find someone else with a different econ view?
    • Good piece on copper here from CME focusing on it's strong links with the Chinese economy and the very low current implied volatility. "Copper closely tracks growth in China, yet copper options prices tend to be closely related to U.S. monetary policy. How will Fed rate cuts impact the metal?
