  • Gold Forms An Inside Bar Setup | Oct. 15th 3 comments
    Oct 15, 2012 6:51 PM

    Today, Gold has continued its sell-off, losing its luster as it shed over $15 breaking a key support level at $1739. In the process, it hit an intraday low sub $1730. Before the major sell-off today, it formed three inside bars, and then started the impulsive sell-off on the break of their lows. It has since then formed another inside bar, so a pullback towards the prior swing lows might offer an selling opportunity.

    Bulls on the other hand will look for a corrective pullback into the $1730 lows which is showing a strong pin bar on the 1hr chart, which is part of the longer rejection from the large bear candle and selling pressure today. This may be signaling buyers picking the metal up on the dip, so there are plays on both sides.

    Would you show a chart for what it looks like when the breakout is happening? I feel like many of these price action analyses depend on hindsight.

    Author’s reply » Hello Yajoe,


    I actually make a lot of trade comments and suggestions before they happen in my daily articles, but if you want to get some ideas of what to look for on a chart when a breakout is happening, please take a look at an article which shows some of the things I look for when a breakout is happening, which you can find below called '3 Keys for Identifying Breakouts'



    Hope this helps.


    Kind Regards,

    Yes, agree with post. Today, most of the things are getting loss and closing the marketing value. Many pubs are also selling due to recession.
