Forex Trade Setups Commentary: Spot Gold Fakey with Pin bar setup, 12th September 2012

Posted on

Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:


The Spot Gold market finally found some resistance today after pushing up to a high of about $1747.00 and then reversing sharply to end the day with a loss over yesterday at $1730.00. We can see a fakey strategy with pin bar formed today as everyone tried to buy the break higher thinking the uptrend would continue higher in the linear fashion it’s been moving in, only to have the bigger market players push the market lower. If today’s counter-trend setup comes off, we could see a retrace lower, perhaps into the key support around $1700.00, at which point we would look for price action buy signals to rejoin the uptrend.
