Are you on sell on Gold? It seems to be correcting as a result of completion of 9th TD buy sequential but using eagle eye to watch it, i see the consolidation to be limited to 1189 if at all it will get there. Now we are in on the 6th TD buy sequential on 4hr chart and on the 5th TD buy countdown on daily chart and on the 10th week of TD Buy countdown. For that reason, Gold will continue down till 1st January, 2017 first week low to be completed under two week and not less than 9 days. So, your take profit on Gold should be at 1150 minimum. Remain blessed Sell to prevail on Gold

Geri WuvGDragon Monteiroand another thing, it's not a problem to have some red on your account as long as the overall is positive. I just started building up my position on usdjpy since I have some free margin now, I know looks like I'm late for the bull run but I'm confident in the dollar strength now and for the medium term.

That's.. quite a drop. I'll keep those in mind. Thanks for your insight. I'm more of a nervous scalper and prefer to accumulate daily pips and sleep well. Holding long term is not something I'm comfortable with yet. Guess you're looking at around 98 for dxy.

Geri WuvGDragon Monteiro  RSI divergence on monthly gives that target for DXY, so I am expecting it. But it may go even higher, this trade war and the lack of dollars on the markets may push the dollar index even above 100.... But you know everything may change altough I think we will have plenty of time to see the end of the rally and the start of a bear market on DXY, I won't hold my breath waiting for the bear to appear on DX tho...

Just reminding you, next two minutes confirm out 1st TD buy sequential and as a result, if you are a day trader, hold sell for next 9hrs minimum as long as 1.2720 is not reclaimed. Sell to prevail

Becky Mukasa  Don't think so, no sign of inversion yet... No good news, no good data, hard brexit in the cards... Plus $ is really strong, gold falling... Trade war and so on, the world is starving for dollars now and it will go on for the next months probably. So no inversion for me but for sure plenty of little pullbacks and consolidations. Enjoy positive swap and relax
