Keeping an Eye on the GC

It’s Wednesday, Daily Direction readers!

We’re halfway through the trading week. And with tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I wanted to wish you all a happy holiday. Be sure to take this time to rest, reflect, and spend time with family and friends.

As far as the markets go, we’re still keeping a careful eye on gold futures (GC). The market has retraced back to the channel’s bottom. We’re now waiting for a positive reversal to occur. When that happens, we’ll start looking for ways to buy the market!

We’re out of the GC unless we see that counter trendline break and bullish push. But when it happens, we can expect a +1800 tick push!  We’ll wait for the next bullish push following the current sell-off.

Our best chance is to keep a watch on our timeframe charts and monitor the GC when it makes its next short-term shift.

Daily Timeframe Analysis

As indicated by the channel in our daily timeframe chart, the GC’s long-term trend stays up. That means, despite a slew of ups and downs along the road, the market is marching to a new high price.

Expect the market to prep for a new bullish rally soon. Don’t worry, the sell-off is just a brief dip.

Daily timeframe
We’re waiting for the GC to make a bullish push toward 1977.4

Again, this is only a blip on the radar. Once the price reduction stops, we expect the market to bounce to a higher price.

As soon as that happens, we’ll turn to the one-hour timeframe and start looking for opportunities to get back into the GC.

One-Hour Timeframe Analysis

The market has reached the bottom of the channel in the one-hour timeframe and is ready to recover toward a new high price. The short-term direction for the market remains down until that U-turn develops.

Following the pullback, a new positive recovery is expected. Remember, the long-term trend is up, thus the short-term sell-off will reverse, giving us a great chance to purchase the GC on the way back up!

The Bottom Line

Mindset Advantage: Breathe

If you’re not breathing, you’re not focused. If you’re not focused, you can’t see the market. Opportunities slide by in an instant. Hazards reveal themselves only when it’s too late.

You need to breathe. Breathing exercises have proven to reduce stress and increase focus.

Sure, you’re already breathing if you read this. But when you trade… you need a breathing regimen. Whatever it is: Through your nose, out your mouth counting to 10 or 100. Find a method and routine that works for you.

You’ll find balance, clarity and focus when you trade. Your heart rate will come down and you’ll just feel better.
