I will just share this. I have returned to share trading after a long absence so due diligence guys... 

However I recall a situation where there was a reverse head and shoulders then the Triangle just like you see now in gold shares. Now an inverse head and shoulders signals a strong move up but I found that when it was combined with a triangle it was explosive. Is history repeating itself? I put my money into gold shares on this basis.

    • Hindsight bias How does 'hindsight bias' affect traders? Hindsight bias in trading is the tendency for individuals to express that they 'knew it all along', once they know the answer to a question or the outcome of an event that was previously uncertain. The consequence of hindsight bias is that it often leads to a false sense of confidence. IG's survey found that up to 55% of traders believe that they are very disciplined when trading – however, this is a dangerous mindset because biases can creep in and lead to irrational trading decisions. A study by Biais and Weber found that those who exhibited the hindsight bias failed to remember how uncertain they had really been before they made their decisions. This means that they may have been inefficient in making choices regarding risk management. From the 85 investment bankers surveyed, all were found to exhibit hindsight bias. How can traders prevent hindsight bias? One way to minimise the impact of hindsight bias is by keeping a trading diary. A trading diary is used to record your progress, keep track of your trading, and plan and refine your strategies. You should also use it to make a note of how you feel before, during and after each trade. By writing down whether you feel confident, afraid, hopeful or uncertain, you will be better placed to get a sense of when you were successful. By mapping the reasons behind trading decisions and comparing them to the desired outcomes, you can use your past trades to inform your future strategy. So, instead of trying to make sense of what happened by oversimplifying the reasons for past events, you can learn from the outcome. Things to keep in mind...
    • Charting the Markets: 20 October Overall indices continue to move higher, but the DAX has struggled as it nears trendline resistance. EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY gain ground, yet questions remain. And gold price recovers as oil price gains slow. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/charting-the-markets--20-october-211020 This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD Price, Chart, and Analysis The Euro remains under pressure from the US bond market. Retail traders remain long EUR/USD but the outlook is mixed. The yield on the benchmark UST 10-year continues to move higher and is now within 10 basis points of levels last seen in January 2020. The latest move higher in yields was prompted by commentary from Federal Reserve governor Christopher Waller who said yesterday that if inflation remained at its current elevated level, then interest rates hikes may need to be bought forward to dampen down price pressures. Governor Waller also said that the Fed should start cutting back its bond purchases (tapering) in November. The markets are currently pricing a 25bp rate hike in the US in September next year with another 25bps fully priced in by December 2022. In contrast, the ECB is seen hiking rates by 10bps in September. The daily EUR/USD chart remains weak despite the 100 pip bounce back over the last few days. All three simple moving averages are negative with the 20-/50-day sma cross at the end of September accelerating the move lower. The pair are currently back above the short-dated sma, which may provide some support, but a move back below would suggest that the recent 1.1525 low would come under pressure again. EURO (EUR/USD) DAILY PRICE CHART OCTOBER 20, 2021 If we look at the weekly EUR/USD chart we can see that the pair are now in a range defined by the 50% and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement levels produced by the January 2017 – February 2018 22 big figure rally. This zone looks set to hold leaving 1.1710 as resistance to any further push higher. EURO (EUR/USD) WEEKLY PRICE CHART OCTOBER 20, 2021 Retail trader data show 63.39% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.73 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.03% higher than yesterday and 1.99% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.08% higher than yesterday and 7.44% lower from last week. We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EUR/USD prices may continue to fall.Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed EUR/USD trading bias. What is your view on EUR/USD – bullish or bearish?   By Nick Cawley, Strategist, 20th October 2021. DailyFX
