Gold 2021 Week 31 Trading Plan

This is my week­ly out­look on GOLD. The lev­els that I will be look­ing at with a high­er prob­a­bilis­tic chance the mar­ket will start react­ing. Dur­ing the ses­sion I then wait for the mar­ket to hit those lev­els and either con­firm or reject my bias through price action con­fir­ma­tion and order flow. I hope that makes sense. If not, please get in touch with me. I love to talk to peo­ple that are on the same path as me. So don’t be shy and reach out.

Month­ly — Bearish

  • MN QHi reject­ed mul­ti­ple times
  • Last month closed with­in MN con­sol­i­da­tion although closed below 50% mark
  • Price still trad­ing above MN-C‑D 1741.655 that was cre­at­ed at MN VWAP in UT

Week­ly — Neutral

  • W1 QHi reject­ed with no arrival at QLo although some demand was formed right above it and price con­tin­ued high­er slight­ly before consolidating.
  • Last week closed as a weak Bull Engulf 

Dai­ly — Bearish

  • D1 Three Out­side Up giv­ing D1-C‑D 1800.832 just above D1 QLo with a con­tin­u­a­tion high­er to D1-C‑S 1826.301 react­ing through a Bear­ish Inside Bar
  • D1 QLo was rejected

Sen­ti­ment sum­ma­ry — Bearish

  • MN QHi reject­ed mul­ti­ple times although no break from MN con­sol­i­da­tion yet. Last month could pos­si­bly be a base to set up for that break from range although more MN demand (coin­cid­ing with MN VWAP in UT) below it as well. 
  • Even though W1 QHi got reject­ed through a big move there was no con­tin­u­a­tion, instead a pull­back to mid swing fol­lowed by a con­sol­i­da­tion. Price would need to break this con­sol­i­da­tion range to fur­ther con­firm a direction. 
  • D1 QLo was reject­ed but price failed to take out the sup­ply which is mid swing and instead saw a big reac­tion. So unless that gets tak­en out the sen­ti­ment is in line with larg­er time­frame sen­ti­ment and D1 QLo could get tak­en out.

      • Buffer trades (prof­it tar­get >1R) are allowed and encouraged
      • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
      • No social media / mes­sen­ger apps / phone calls allowed dur­ing the trad­ing window
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • With­out forc­ing a trade: aim to take 1 trade a day, if pos­si­ble 2. 
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
