The Latest Scoop On Gold Futures

Good morning, Daily Direction readers!

In today’s edition, we’ll follow the gold futures market (GC) as we actively look for opportunities for smart trades!

Both the long-term and short-term directions are up for the GC. With a daily Fibonacci extension of 2114.6, there’s an opportunity for plenty of ticks above the current market.

Investors are still dealing with volatility in the market. And as the headlines continue to make many traders nervous over uncertainty, the gold market stands to make some gains.

When we face this sort of trading environment, the important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t let your emotions dictate how you trade. That’s a recipe for making money-losing mistakes.

Let’s take a closer look at our timeframe analysis to see how we should follow the GC as it moves:

Daily Timeframe Analysis

As you can see in the daily timeframe, the GC market is currently moving along an up channel.

The market pushed above the top of the channel, dipped back down, and should push back up to higher prices again.

Don’t forget that the market will make these stair-step moves as it continues on an upward trajectory. Our strategy allows us to find low prices within that overall upward movement so we can buy the market and sell at a higher price.

Currently, our limit for this setup is 2114.6, with a stop at the 1727.6 price point. These tools prevent us from risking too much and overleveraging our accounts.

Mindset Advantage: Ignore The Headlines

Put the news in its place – once and for all.

Sure. They’re entertaining. They have a lot to say. And yes, they bring you information.

But when it comes to your trading, those talking heads can cost you a lot of money.

It’s their job to entertain and retain viewers – not give you the entry or exit you really need, let alone an insight that will provide an advantage.

Let’s face it: by the time it’s coming out of their mouth, the market has already responded.

So don’t let them whip you into a frenzy.

Don’t take the information they provide and place a trade on it. Forget those talking heads!
