Buy gold in 2014
Market Condition Evaluation based on standard indicators in Metatrader 5
newdigital, 2013.12.27 16:01
All short-term developing/forming patterns are showing downtrend (M6 - H8 timeframes) but we may see the bullish trend for long term situation (timeframes started with H12 to MN1). Thus, we may see downtrend immediate after News Year for example, but it will be uptrend in general for long term situation (end of January, February and so on).
Trades who invested the money in gold - may have good profit in 2014, and the trades who are still keeping their short positions - they will have possibility to close it with profit in the beginning of 2014.
M10 timeframe - forming pattern '3-drives' for downtrend :
H8 timeframe - forming pattern 'Retrecement' for downtrend :
W1 timeframe : forming 'Retracement' for uptrend :
MN1 timeframe : forming 'Retracement' pattern for uptrend:
Week 1 - 6H Chart Update: Ranging Bearish - I believe that once price will go inside an overbough situation on WPR oscillator probably we can see finally an inversion of bearish trend.

Technical Analysis for GOLD (adapted from dailyfx article)
are markedly higher this week with the precious metal rallying nearly
2% to trade at $1236 ahead of the New York close on Friday. The advance
comes amid thin holiday trade with bullion rebounding off key support at
$1179 ahead of the close of 2013 trade. Does this rally suggest that
the beaten metal is turning the corner in 2014? The technicals suggest
that in the near-term, that may be the case.
Next week traders will be closely eyeing the return
of the US data stream with ISM non-manufacturing, factory orders, ADP
employment, trade balance data and the release of the minutes from the
latest FOMC policy meeting all on tap ahead of the much anticipated NFP
report on Friday. Non-farm payrolls are expected to show the addition of
193K jobs last month, slightly softer than the blowout 203K print seen
in November, with the headline employment rate seen holding steady at
7.0%. Look for strengthening US data to limit advances in gold with our
broader outlook remaining weighted to the downside below $1268/70.

Gold in 2014
Gold price set for ‘modest recovery’ in 2014
Gold is expected to see a “modest recovery’ in 2014 after last year’s dramatic decline in prices, according to market analysts. The
precious metal lost nearly 30 percent of its value in 2013, its worst
decline in decades. The end of the 12-year bull-run came ahead of the
U.S. plan to reduce its monetary stimulus. Jeff Rhodes, founder
and managing consultant for Rhodes Precious Metals Consultancy DMCC in
Dubai, said that 2014 would be “a year of consolidation and modest
recovery” in the gold market. “My feeling about 2014 is that you’re likely to see the market consolidate and stabilize,” Rhodes told Al Arabiya News.
“I see the market year-on-year higher than the end of 2013, but not dramatically so.” Rhodes said he forecasts an increase in the gold price of around 15 percent by the end of the year.
But other analysts said that the increase in gold could be short-lived.
Edward Meir, metals analyst at brokerage INTL FCStone, told Reuters that
a stronger U.S. dollar and lower crude oil prices could put pressure on
the precious metal.

2014-01-06 15:00 GMT (or 16:00 MQ MT5 time) | [USD - ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI]
if actual > forecast = good for currency (for USD in our case)
U.S. Service Sector Unexpectedly Expands At Slower Rate In December
Activity in the U.S. service sector unexpectedly grew at a slower
rate in the month of December, according to a report released by the
Institute for Supply Management on Monday.
The ISM said its
non-manufacturing index edged down to 53.0 in December from 53.9 in
November, although a reading above 50 still indicates growth in the
service sector. With the drop, the index fell to its lowest level since
hitting 52.8 in June.

Can anyone tell how to trade XAUUSD !!!

How to trade? Are you asking or what?
About pips for XAUUSD in your statement ... for example : 1239.59 - 1223.78 = 15.81 right? So, it is 1581 pips (because it is gold related to USD - if i am wrong so sorry). But what you provided by statement (91 pips ... 88 pips) ... are you making scalping using lot size = 50 or 100? :) :)
Just an example :

Yellow Currency This Year
Despite gold biting the dust last year, some analysts are the most
bullish in a year on speculation that investors are reducing near-record
bearish bets after the biggest plunge in prices since 1981. It is to be
noted that gold suffered one of the worst performances in 2013 and fell
to the levels that was seen only three decades ago.
According to a survey investors and some analysts are willing to take
risk as they believe that gold will rise this week despite the fact that
gold retreated for the first time in 13 years in 2013. This is
happening as an improving economy spurring speculation the Federal
Reserve would curb stimulus.
China is one of the largest consumers of gold and according to analysts
purchases may rise before China’s Lunar New Year festival on Jan. 31.
India which is the largest importer of gold could not import it more as
the government imposed heavy duty on the imports, as it was causing huge
drainage on the Forex reserves.
The poor demand from India was though compensated by Chinese demand for
the yellow metal; it was not enough to boost the prices. However, this
year, some analysts believe that Chinese demand will help boost prices
to a great extent.
