Can anyone tell how to trade ?
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 :

Trade Gold Using Currency Correlations (based on dailyfx article)
Secondly, the AUD has a high correlation to gold due to Australia’s
extensive gold mining operations. As gold prices fluctuate, this
increases or decreases the amount of funds transferred into AUD to make
purchases of the metal. These transfers essentially change demand for
the currency and can directly cause changes in the AUDUSD currency pair
Trading the Correlation
The key to trading positively correlated assets, is finding a direction
from one of the underlying assets before making a trading decision. If
traders are seeing the AUDUSD push to lower lows, this could easily be
the catalyst for a bearish bias on Gold. Conversely if gold is trending
upwards, this can also be a signal of a new uptrend on the AUDUSD.
As you can see, this information is very useful to traders that have a
general fundamental view of the market. If you have an opinion on Gold
or the US Dollar this can be relayed into a trade idea. Often traders
that are bullish on Gold choose to trade the AUDUSD instead of the metal
itself. The Aussie Dollar carries a 2.50% banking rate, meaning traders
can earn additional interest while executing a buy order on a
positively correlated opinion of Gold. If a trader is bearish on the
AUDUSD currency pair, traders can in turn sell gold to avoid
accumulating interest on their trading balance.

Trading the Gold Silver Ratio :
For the hard-asset enthusiast, the gold-silver ratio is part of common parlance, but for the average investor, this arcane metric
is anything but well-known. This is unfortunate because there's great
profit potential using a number of well-established strategies that rely
on this ratio.
In a nutshell, the gold-silver
ratio represents the number of silver ounces it takes to buy a single
ounce of gold. It sounds simple, but this ratio is more useful than you
might think. Read on to find out how you can benefit from this ratio.
How the Ratio Works
When gold trades at $500 per ounce and silver at $5, traders refer
to a gold-silver ratio of 100. Today the ratio floats, as gold and
silver are valued daily by market forces, but this wasn't always the
case. The ratio has been permanently set at different times in history -
and in different places - by governments seeking monetary stability.
Here's a thumbnail overview of that history:
How to Trade the Gold-Silver Ratio
First off, trading the gold-silver ratio is an activity primarily undertaken by hard-asset enthusiasts like "gold bugs". Why? Because the trade is predicated on accumulating greater quantities of the metal and not on increasing dollar-value profits. Sound confusing? Let's look at an example.The
essence of trading the gold-silver ratio is to switch holdings when the
ratio swings to historically determined "extremes." So, as an example:
For those worried about devaluation, deflation,
currency replacement - and even war - the strategy makes sense.
Precious metals have a proven record of maintaining their value in the
face of any contingency that might threaten the worth of a nation's fiat currency.
Drawbacks of the Trade
The obvious difficulty with the trade is correctly identifying
those "extreme" relative valuations between the metals. If the ratio
hits 100 and you sell your gold for silver, then the ratio continues to
expand, hovering for the next five years between 120 and 150, you're
stuck. A new trading precedent has apparently been set, and to trade
back into gold during that period would mean a contraction in your metal holdings.
What is there to do in that case? One could always continue to add
to one's silver holdings and wait for a contraction in the ratio, but
nothing is certain. This is the essential risk to those trading the
ratio. It also points out the need to successfully monitor ratio changes
over the short and medium term in order to catch the more likely
"extremes" as they emerge.
There's an entire world of investing permutations available to the
gold-silver ratio trader. What's most important is to know one's own
trading personality and risk profile. For the hard-asset investor
concerned with the ongoing value of his or her nation's fiat currency,
the gold-silver ratio trade offers the security of knowing, at the very
least, that he or she always possesses the metal.
