The Glittering Gold Trade to Make Now

Good Tuesday, Traders!

With US stock and bond markets still in turmoil on any given day or week, one of the best alternative assets is providing some great trading opportunities so far this year.

Gold is the ultimate trading hedge for many traders and has been glittering with opportunities and actual trading gains so far this year. 

Year to date, gold on a cash basis alone is up by nearly 8% in price, with gold futures contracts (GC) amplifying that gain by multiple folds. 

And periodically this year, including from Jan. 21 through March 8, gold has soared even more, gaining nearly 12% alone for that trading period on a cash basis.

Recently, gold has traded back from the gains into early March and has been range-bound for a while. 

But that’s changing this week with gold gaining again and setting up a great trade idea for the week for gold futures contracts.

The Step by Step Trade Setup

And here’s how the trade should set up according to the research…

The Gold (GC) one hour time frame is in an up channel. The market hit the bottom of the channel and is pushing bullish towards the top of the channel.

Entry: Counter trend line break-bullish above the bottom of the channel.

Stop: 1,928.50

Limit: 2,001.80

As long as the market stays above the bottom of the channel, it will be a good idea to turn to the five minute time frame and to look for Tunnel Trader/Destination Trader long opportunities.

This idea was posted on the Traders Agency website as well as my TradingView page, as I always seek to get plenty of comments and evaluations on my trade ideas each and every week.
