Gold Retrace Triangle but which way will it break out?


Mercury

Recommended Posts

The 4 Hour chart Triangle that I have been tracking for a breakout may have an alternative lower line so the breakout may not yet be on.  In fact I prefer a break of the lower support level to trigger a Short as another leg up within the Triangle is quite possible, especially if Stock indices go on a retrace down.

 

Is anyone trading Gold or Silver right now?  What is your view?

Hi Mercury, I share the same view, have been keeping a close eye on this now for a while but gold does not seem to be a tradable commodity right now as it is clearly stuck in this triangle, however it will break sometime and I possibly think a small rally to the top of the triangle might be just that final touch to complete W-e before heading lower riding the W-c.aud usd 2h.png

I guess it doesn't much matter whether it rallies within the Triangle or not  so long as we are positioned for a breakout either way, although at present I am biased towards the downside.  The longer things go on though the more likely it is that my bis will chance, rather depends on other markets I feel, in particular stocks where we may be on the verge of a top but will we see a retrace and rally before that or not?

There is a general "rule" is classic chartism that a price gap through a major boundary line (i.e. geometric pattern line or Support/Resistance line) should be treated as a breakway gap (i.e. that it will not be filled as per usual).  This signals a strong move away from the gap.  We could have such a Gap on Silver.  I was initially wondering if we might get another gap back up leaving an island formation (a strong Bullish signal in this case) but so far it looks Bearish.  If Gold and Silver remain broadly aligned then we should see a bearish move on Gold too and today we have a break of my lower Triangle line (4 hour chart this time).

 

The only fly in the ointment is Yellen's post Jackson Hole speech at the end of the week.  It seems that the entire marketplace is waiting for a clue on US rates...  **** irritating or what?!?

Hi Mercury, you are absolutely right about the Jackson fed meeting has really stolen some of the essential momentum of the markets this week, which has been somewhat frustrating, however looking at this trade, I feel that gold has already began W1 of W5 of the C move, which commenced on the 18 august. Therefore if we see a bullish statement, it will without doubt be a retracement in gold only, unless any of us see an alternative wave count, which right now I cant.

Hi  and 

 

Looks like its breaking down the triangles one by one. There is last one has support at 1320 then final flat line at 1310. I think there could be another very sharp leg up to 1340 area to clear some shorts before wave C.  

 

I think 1330-1340 area are good for shorts with the target of 1280.

 

Where is your entry points and targets ?

 

Cheers!

They could be some clearing out in a brief retrace rally alright  but you can't rely on that, the best trades never retrace the initial break.  Having said that because this is most likely a larger time frame retrace rather than a trend change it may not have the same momentum as a motive wave so small retraces are very possible.

 

I am short after the break of my Triangle line on the sharp 12.00 drop through yesterday (similar on Silver but at 14.00) with Stops above key resistance levels.

    • Yep - If the major cycle working out since 2016 repeats as its done for the past 225 years then the USA Indices are UP, UP,UP until the mid 2030's - corrections will be nothing like 2000-2009 corrections  Although chart is up to date - I wrote the below pre 2015 (can't remember exactly when) - as an absolute min I'd expect 22-25,000 for the SP500 to end on in 2034
    • Have to say Casey, your contributions on the on going Covid story (monumental ballsup) have been a tonic. Was sceptical for sometime but am more sympathetic to your premise regarding the pandemic and the reaction to it. Vaccines are such good PR, it is a shame that the general population are being used as guinea pigs for DNA altering drugs with as yet unknown and potentially damaging long-term consequences and side effects. Doubly bazarre,the governments of the planet are prepared to take the risk in the name of exigency. AZ is particularly dirty and incomplete, if not down right dangerous as to be considered a lethal weapon to some of the unfortunates unlucky enough to experience the more unpleasant side effects of being injected with it. Such is political expediency and exigency at the altar of public health. Forgive the unPC comments, but they are borne from experience, as my wife has had long-term reactions to the "cure". Most folk don't want to hear anything but the popular narrative, even if it vere's heartily away from some inconvenient truths. So thank you Casey keep up the good work, it's appreciated.
    • Don't think the bull run has ended, just a correction is very much on the cards. Timing of which suggests we have some room to manoeuvre but would not be surprised at all if the market tops out within the next couple of weeks, or anytime around 21/06....Suggest it is more a profit taking exercise than genuine full scale correction, which could/should be later in the year. Only mentioned this as markets have been red hot for months and swimming in liquidity, sooner or later some of that will be taken out in the form of profit taking. Suggest it may be a 10% er or even more. In the past have purchased  ETFs that short the market and like to buy the Vix at less than 20, as it's a fair form of insurance (Imho). Psychologically, the oil markets have a problem with WTI being over the $75, which at current rates of progress is due to top out sooner than later. Just mentioning it.
