With the stock market still challenged and other financial assets having their own ups and downs, gold is gaining trader appeal right now as a viable hedge.
Gold continues to provide periodic gains both this year and last, and it is the subject of this week’s idea, which I’ve just published to my TradingView page.
But the key to profitable trades is to be in at the right entry level as well as being ready to exit at the right level.
So today, let’s take a look at potentially capitalizing on a potential bull market run in the gold futures contract (GC) as this month continues to shape up…
The Gold (GC) Trade Setup
Here’s how the chart shows the potential gain from the gold futures contract (GC)…
And here’s how I see this week’s idea setting up for the Gold futures contract…
The Gold futures contract (GC) one hour time frame is in a sideways range.
The market is near the bottom of the range showing signs of a potential bullish push towards the top of the range.
Entry: Counter trend line break bullish above the bottom of the sideways range.
Stop: In the sell zone below the low before the entry.
As long the market stays above the bottom of the sideways range, it will be a good idea to turn to the smaller time frames and to look for Tunnel Trader, Destination Trader and/or Chandelier Trader long ideas towards 1,882.10.
