This is my week­ly out­look on GOLD. Basi­cal­ly the lev­els that I will be look­ing at where it has 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 — Slight­ly Bearish

  • MN-C‑D 1876.079 formed through Bull Engulf in Decem­ber with no fol­low-through. Instead a test and reac­tion off MN-C‑S 1965.605 (2nd test, first in Novem­ber). Month of Jan­u­ary clos­ing down with­in MN demand although not retrac­ing more than 50% with price cur­rent­ly trad­ing low­er although still 3 weeks to go into the can­dle close. 
  • Pos­si­ble Phase 3
  • Price took out under­ly­ing demand at 1764.835

Week­ly — Bearish

  • Price broke below W1 50MA in UT through a DBD (giv­ing W1-C‑S 1818.073 BASE) react­ing off W1 VWAP CAR although some retrace­ment leav­ing some buy­ing wick behind

Dai­ly — Slight­ly Bullish

  • After tak­ing out larg­er time­frame demand price formed a Bull Engulf cre­at­ing new demand D1-C‑D 1778 above pre­vi­ous demand

H4 — Slight­ly Bullish

  • Con­sol­i­da­tion with strong Bear Engulf fin­ish­er with no direct fol­low-through instead some consolidation.

Sen­ti­ment sum­ma­ry — Slight­ly Bearish

  • Due to larg­er time­frame demand being tak­en out and a break below W1 50MA in UT sen­ti­ment is shift­ed to bear­ish. Although due to the same demand being tak­en out we could see more buy­ers com­ing in as that tends to hap­pen at huge SD ZOIs. This could trans­late into a retrace­ment before con­tin­u­ing down or tran­si­tion into form­ing a new demand around these lev­els. Although the next larg­er time­frame demand is at 1729.5 so we might set out to test that. Will need more intra­day price action to guide sentiment.
