Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:
The Spot Gold market has exploded higher since we discussed the pin bar setup that formed back on August 15th in our members’ commentary. The previous 3-month old trading range that this market was stuck in has now clearly come to an end on this breakout, and traders can now watch for price action trading buy signals on any rotations back down to support. The support zone between $1630.00 – $1640.00 is clearly a significant support zone to watch for buy signals if price rotates lower down into it soon.

In the U.S. markets today, stocks lost ground as investors lost hope for stimulus action in the near-term from the Federal Reserve. Also, disappointing Chinese and euro-zone data weighed on the market.
