  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Gold Intraday trading

I have found no thread for Gold intraday traders,
So I'll try to start one.

I find observation of price action alone to be of utmost importance. Observation of behavior.
Good technical analysis is about observation.

Here is a good link to start the thread off with. The intraday seasonality of Gold, initially begun by a study conducted by Larry Williams.

The link is Intraday Seasonal Cycle Forecast Trading Charts of Major Markets and you can download from there the PDF on Gold intraday.

I would like to keep the thread on an intraday observational trading level,,

Any Gold traders out there??? Please give me a heads up and maybe we can share some insights.

I trade gold. Not doing a whole lot of it right now because of the choppy trade on the daily charts.

gold trading movements

I have been trading gold intraday (mostly mornings) and these are my observations in 2 months of watching it:

it really obeys support and resistance from previous days or pre market low.
it obeys to any support resistance mostly major levels like previous close, yesterdays high or yesterdays low or yesterday's pivot.
it's good to watch all the levels from previous days that it might have to notice major possible S/R.
it likes to see saw people before it tends to go on one direction only. it is best bought countertrend at a previous level of S/R (support resistance) with a bid beforehand as it happens in seconds on a sweep (move abruptly to one side).
it does not care about simple moving averages and it only obeys the 200 sma as a S/R level on the 2 minute chart.
you need to get a 'feel' and stay open of the strength once is near a level to wait.. wait and see if it would break the level or just bounce as it likes to see saw people on big moves that lead to stop outs. pays to wait and by the third side is trying to pick, that most likely could be a good direction to enter a position. always have stops on it near.
I do not trade it on extreme volatility or I wait for volatility to decrease.

Gold Trading

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

I am learning to trade Gold futures intraday - interesting market - nice structure to it and seems to respond to HVNs - I like to trade during the Asian session as I live in Australia and want to learn to trade during our daytime or maybe London session as well. I'm hoping that the traders who already posted here are still around and are there any like minded traders out there?
