    Hey bud­dy good afternoon ?

    Ques­tions on Gold:

    1. On the H4 TF. would you con­sid­er the last 10 can­dles con­sol­i­da­tion or inde­ci­sion ? or does the bull­ish engulf­ing, fol­lowed by the inside bar sep­a­rate those can­dles into two groups ?

    2. all this action is going on just below the D1 Qhi. how does that weigh on that price action ?

    3. when you said wide Qhi Qlo in the email , are you refer­ing to the prof­it mar­gin multiples ?

    4. I per­son­al­ly feel this is alot of inde­ci­sion, how does that match up to your thoughts ?

    5. The 1HR TF is cre­at­ing alot of over­lap­ing demands, might that indi­cate a pos­si­ble rever­sal back into 1D Qhi to test the sup­ply above ?

    I hope all these ques­tions hurt your brain 🙂

    I just real­ized that I was look­ing at micro gold and the Q points are dif­fer­ent. Mup­pet meter is tick­ing upwards !!

    Hi Juan,

    Thanks for the ques­tions. I love hard ques­tions so keep them coming! 🙂

    1. I referred to the price action as Phase 1 / 3 meaing price needs to break from this range before a more direc­tion­al cue can be tak­en. So there is some accumulation/distribution going on but no break yet. Open with­in Val­ue is not help­ing either.
    This direc­tion­al cue can be had if D1 breaks low­er (as is usu­al­ly more prob­a­ble after a (Invert­ed) Ham­mer is formed com­plet­ing a DBD formation.
    Usu­al­ly ham­mers spell con­tin­u­a­tions rather than rever­sals. Again trade loca­tion is important.
    Since I use VWAP in my analy­sis as well this goes counter the pos­si­ble D1 DBD nar­ra­tive as D1 VWAP is right below and price is still in an uptrend. It seems the LN ses­sion does not want to make a move so this direc­tion­al move could come dur­ing NY.

    2. It’s actu­al­ly not ‘just below the D1 QHi as price already moved low­er from it last Mon­day. The higher/lower you go up/down into a dis­tri­b­u­tion curve or swing high/low the more prob­a­ble it becomes that there will be a rever­sal. Right now it could go either way just based on the Swing High nar­ra­tive for the day. Although on a longer term a QHi rejec­tion usu­al­ly implies a move towards QLo. Although the ques­tion always remains which path it will fol­low. TBH I also don’t like that price just bare­ly missed test­ing the W1/D1 QHi and the rejec­tion move clos­ing low­er could just have been a short term reac­tion to D1 200MA. When­ev­er this lev­el gets touched for the first time (rel­a­tive­ly speak­ing) there is usu­al­ly some reac­tion. Now the ques­tion is if that reac­tion is sus­tained or if price will go and test it again.

    3. No a Wide QHi/QLo refers to the actu­al dis­tance of the swing high/low. Not mea­sur­ing the dis­tance between but rather the top quar­tile a.k.a QHi from its top to where the QHi is placed. I’ve attached an image for your convenience.

    4. I agree

    5. Apart from doing that it is also con­tin­u­ous­ly test­ing H1 200MA in UT and H1 50MA in DT is con­verg­ing in what I like to call enter­ing an apex. Sim­i­lar to a tri­an­gle in “con­ven­tion­al” chart pat­tern read­ings. Usu­al­ly when a test of a lev­el hap­pens (SD, VWAP, MA, etc) it usu­al­ly means that that lev­el gets bro­ken. Obvi­ous­ly you need price action and trade loca­tion to con­firm. Just as a side­note I do not weigh in H1 analy­sis high­ly into my trad­ing plans as you might have noticed. For me it is just there so give a slight­ly more nuanced con­fir­ma­tion or nega­tion of a pos­si­ble nar­ra­tive that I might be stalk­ing. Also, in my expe­ri­ence when price behaves some­what “errat­ic” pos­si­bly through a tighter ASR the H1 becomes slight­ly more lead­ing in my analysis. 

    I hope all my answers hurt your brain! 😀

    Is it a con­tin­u­ous con­tract that you are look­ing at?

    Globex Feb 2023(GCEG23) on AMP futures it was the one with the most liq­uid­i­ty. It looks like the Qpoint cal­cu­la­tion might be off for some reason ?

    It’s pos­si­ble the dif­fer­ence between Futures and me trad­ing spot prices. I’d still like to see the dif­fer­ence if you can send/post a screen­shot though.
