Avoid These 3 Rookie Gold Trading Mistakes Now

George Georgoudakis, 2016.08.23 03:43

Sometimes the best trade is no trade at all. The gold market continues to languish within a developing triangle pattern on the daily chart as traders await comments from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Friday at the Fed summit in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Not a whole lotta action right now.

Could Janet trigger a triangle breakout? As nearly 500 million people in advanced industrialized nations remain mired under negative interest rates policies –what if any answers do global central bankers have for the current sluggish growth prospects? Will Fed Chief Janet Yellen have any answers this week? Read more here.

In the meantime, as the gold market lumbers quietly in a tight range, it may open the door to several trading mistakes. Do any of these sound familiar?

Trading Mistake #1: Sometimes sheer boredom can trigger you into a trade.

  • Looking for some excitement? Don't look to the markets for that. Don't take unplanned trades. Write your trades down ahead of time, with your entry points, objectives and stop-loss levels.

Trading Mistake #2: Trading outside your timeframe.

  • Are you a short-term intraday trader?

  • Are you a multi-day swing traders?

  • Are you a long-term investor?

One of the elements of a successful trading and investing plan is to know your timeframe and stick to it.

Trading Mistake #3: Getting stuck and trading your "opinion."

The markets will tell you where they are going –all you have to do is watch the charts. The markets –gold or otherwise – are not going to change direction just because you doubled down on a losing trade. Good traders listen to the markets – and follow price. Markets don't care that you "know" gold has to go up right now because of XYZ.

Triangle update: Comex December gold futures remain stuck in a developing daily triangle. As a reminder, triangles are most often "continuation" patterns, which means upon a confirmed upside breakout, gold would resume its previous uptrend. See Figure 1 below.

What you need to know now:

  • The triangle has not been confirmed

  • The short-term picture within the triangle is weakening as gold dropped below its 20-day moving average.

  • Momentum is weak-ish and lackluster.

  • Watch the triangle support and resistance trendlines –it would take a sustained rally and close above the top triangle trendline to confirm an upside breakout.

Technical Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

H4 price is located above 100 SMA/200 SMA for the bullish market condition: the price is on ranging within the following support/resistance levels:

  • 1.1354 resistance level located above 100 SMA/100 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 1.1270 support level located near and above 100 SMA in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.
The bearish reversal level is 1.1130 support, and if the price breaks this level to below on close H4 bar so the reversal of the intra-day price movement from the bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.



Daily price
. United Overseas Bank is expecting for EUR/USD to be continuing with the bullish market condition:

"While stops for s/t bullish view is still intact at 1.1240, the recent price action is lackluster and the odds for extension to the 1.1430 high seen on the day of Brexit are not very high. EUR has to clear the recent 1.1365 peak in an ‘impulsive manner’ before a sustained up-move can be expected."


  • If daily price breaks 1.1365 resistance level on close bar so the bullish trend will be continuing.
  • If daily price breaks 1.1109 support level on close bar so the reversal of the price movement to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
  • If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.

Technical Targets for GBP/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

H4 price is above 100 SMA/200 SMA for the bullish market condition: the price is breaking 1.3185 resistance to above for 1.3209 target to re-enter.


Daily price. United Overseas Bank is expecting for GBP/USD to be continuing with the bullish market condition by 1.3186 resistance to be broken with 1.3255 bullish target:

"GBP touched a low of 1.3034 before rebounding strongly. While short-term downward momentum has waned with the strong recovery, we still believe that the current pull-back has scope to extend lower to test the 1.2940 support first. That said, a clear break above last week 1.3186 high could lead to a quick move towards the key 1.3255 resistance."


  • If daily price breaks 1.3319 resistance level on close bar so the local uptrend as the bear market rally will be started.
  • If daily price breaks 1.2794 support level on close bar so the primary bearish trend will be resumed.
  • If not so the price will be on ranging within the levels.

USD/CNH Price Action Analysis - rdaily correction to be resumed or the bullish to be re-started (adapted from the article)

Daily price is located above 200 period SMA and 100 period SMA for the primary bullish with secondary ranging between Fibo support level at 6.6125 and Fibo resistance level at 6.7166:

  • "The hold above 6.6500 seems likely to shift focus to intermediate resistance at 6.6860 followed by the 6.7 figure."
  • "A break and hold above those recent highs may be required for bulls to really take control again."
  • "A move to the downside may target the 6.6500 level again, followed by the July lows at 6.6224."


If daily price breaks Fibo support level at 6.6125 to below so the local downtrend as the secondary correction will be resumed.
If daily price breaks Fibo resistance level at 6.7166 from below to above so the primary bullish trend will be continuing with good possible breakout of the price movement.
If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.

Technical Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

H4 price is located above 100 SMA/200 SMA for the bullish market condition: the price is on ranging within the following support/resistance levels:

  • 1.1365 resistance level located far above 100 SMA/100 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 1.1244 support level located near and above 100 SMA in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.

The price is testing 1.1296 resistance level together with ascending triangle pattern to above.


Daily price. United Overseas Bank is expecting for EUR/USD to be continuing with the ranging bullish market condition within 1.1190/1.1370 range:

"As highlighted yesterday, unless EUR can move and stay above 1.1310/15, the bullish outlook would shift to neutral. While further EUR strength would not be surprising further out, the current price action suggests that this pair has entered a consolidation phase and only a clear break out of the expected 1.1190/1.1370 sideway trading range would indicate the start of directional move."


  • If daily price breaks 1.1365 resistance level on close bar so the bullish trend will be continuing.
  • If daily price breaks 1.1109 support level on close bar so the reversal of the price movement to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
  • If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.
