Just something about 'Where the price will go to' in the beginning of January 2014
All developing/forming patterns are showing downtrend in the beginning of January (and in February too).

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:
'Where the price will go to' in the beginning of January 2014
Just about EURUSD
Timeframes up to M30 timeframe - uptrend, starting from H1 till MN1 - downtrend.
Why timeframes are important in our case? Well ... MN1 is monthly timeframe. One bar in MN1 timeframe = one month. Means : new bar is open in 1st of January 2014 and close in 1st of February ... so - if MN1 timeframe is showing uptrend - it is long story for at least 3 months or half a year (long term situation). M30 timeframe? One bar in M30 timeframe = 30 minutes. So, if we are having forming pattern on this timeframe - this pattern may be confirmed for half a day for example.
What is confirmation for forming pattern? Example with formed/developed pattern (for EURUSD) - Gartney 5-0 for uptrend :
Do you see pattern? right ... and do you see how the price went to uptrend after this pattern? it is confirmation - this pattern was formed (because it was confirmed) - we expected uptrend and we see - real uptrend. It is too late to open buy trade as everything was done here. This is formed/developed pattern.
next example with forming pattern :
We see that this pattern (Retracement) is showing downtrend. But it is forming pattern as we do not have confirmation for this downtrend. When we see this confirmation so it will be too late to open sell trade sorry ... that is why I am analysing forming patterns.
Thus, we may have uptrend in the very beginning of January 2014 and downtrend in general for this pair for at leats half a year.
It was technical analysis only. And technical analysis is providing on the way as "if the price/resistance/support/indicator will go to ... it will be upward ... otherwise - downtrend ...".
Why we are providing technical analysis in so approximate way? because technical analysis is not whole the story ... The whole analysis = technical analysis + fundamental analysis.
What is fundamental analysis? This is news events (economic calendar in MT5). Nut fundamental news events are very unpredictable by actual data ...
That is why we can not tell exactly with high probability about 'Where the price will go to' in the beginning of January 2014
That's all news
Just about Gold (XAUUSD).
Chinkou Span line came to be very close to historical price on D1 timeframe price to be ready for good breakout. But the price is still below Senkou Span A line (which is the border between primary bullish and primary bearish on the chart). So, I expect tha rally may be continuing, and the price may be stopped near 1275.83 resistance or 1298.43 resistance level. Otherwise - we may see ranging market condition within primary bearish.

Well ... what I am explaining here by text and charts - it is understandable for traders. But there are traders and coders on the forum. And I think we all know that they are using different "forex english" in some cases. So, I am just translating some terms/words I am using for technical Ichimoku analysis onto "coding english" language :) :
Tenkan Sen / Kijun Sen Cross
The Tenkan Sen / Kijun Sen Cross signal occurs when the Tenkan Sen (Turning line) crosses the Kijun Sen (Standard line).
A bullish signal occurs when the Tenkan Sen crosses from below to above the Kijun Sen
Kijun Sen Cross
The Kijun Sen Cross signal occurs when the price crosses the Kijun Sen (Standard line).
A bullish signal occurs when the price crosses from below to above the Kijun Sen
Besides, there are many signals of Ichimoku indicator
to open the trades. I know about 6 signals (but it is much more signals
in combination with each other):
The combination of all those 6 signals = Ichimoku indicator
