Gold sellers are dominating

Gold sellers are dominating. Last 3 months selling on rallies was dominant strategy for positional intraday traders. Occasional longs are possible only with the strict timeframes such as 15m.

W H4 and 78.6 are making a confuence close to the previous top. 1919-1922 is the POC zone where we might expect sellers to react. If the market gets higher above 1934 then sellers will be in trouble. I expect rejections off 1911-13 zone and 1919-22 zone. Targets are 1892 and 1882. Read More...
