Gold WEEKLY chart for your review below.
This Sunday night I got the first weekly sell signal since the end of 2017. You can see the little red arrow along with the current bar marked in red. Just because a signal happened, does not mean we will see a sell off but for me personally it is a good probability that the pressure is stronger to the downside. I like some of the option plays one can do using vertical put spreads.
The chart above includes some proprietary studies/ALGOS.
These ALGOS along with a 15 minutes one on one session is available for a free trial.

Dear Traders,

What are the Best Approaches for Long-Term Gold Futures Price Forecasting?

Author: Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker at Cannon Trading Co, Inc.

There is no easy answer to what the best strategy is to predicting price movement in gold futures, much less any other commodity. Given that rather glum starting point, there are approaches that analysts and economists use to forecast prices. One most commonly employed is the use of broad-based commodity indexes – in which prices of food, energy, other metals, lumber, etc. are aggregated to gauge overall commodity price inflation – or the lack thereof.

Another strategy is to look for trends in the economic measurements of major developed and developing countries, such as business and consumer confidence, retail sales, interest rates, production of energy products (unleaded gas, heating oil, jet fuel, natural gas) and industrial metals (steel, aluminum).  These can also be aggregated to provide a broader reflection of global inflation.

Dear Traders,
Gold: At the Crossroads of Fiscal and Monetary Policies
Twice this year implied volatility in gold options spiked from 9% to around 13.5%. Proportionally, that represents a 50% rise and seems like a big move, at least by the standards of recent history. What is more remarkable, however, is how calm the gold market has generally been. For the past two years, implied volatility on gold options have been near the lowest levels in recent memory and are a far cry from the 17% average levels that prevailed in 2015 and 2016, much less the spikes above 30% in 2011 and 2013 (Figure 1). So why has the gold market been so placid and what will likely drive volatility?

Gold Futures VS Gold ETFs (GCL, IAU) by Matt Kang

April 30th, 2018 Filed under Gold Futures, Metal Futures | Comment (0)

By Matt Kang, Senior Broker @ Cannon Trading Co, Inc.

Gold is the most actively traded precious metal and it is a good hedge against inflation that is why many individuals and institutional investors are investing in gold  to keep their assets by declining dollar and US stock values. Retail access to gold trading has broadened substantially through the futures and gold ETFs.

Let’s take a look at the key difference between gold futures and gold ETFs.

  • Where they traded?
