Golds Wyckoff Price Road Map

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018 Aug 25, 2018 - 06:31 PM GMT

By: readtheticker

Commodities

Applying Richard Wyckoff and Richard Ney logic. (A wealth of knowledge on this subject is disclosed via the RTT Plus service found at readtheticker.com)

Question: Is there evidence to suggest a accumulation within gold.

First, we must understand gold is controlled large positions of : futures longs, futures shorts, futures calls buy and sell, futures puts buy and sells. Each of these will be large and must be positioned before a powerful move higher or lower can occur.

1) The sharp sell off during 2013/14/15 allowed the shorts to profit, short covering occurred late 2015/16/17. The short trade from the 2011 high is done! This is good news for bulls as these positions are mostly cleared.



2) The two very sharp sell offs in 2016 and 2018 (from $130 to $110) allowed large professionals to accumulate futures longs positions during a down swing. This is important as the professionals do not want to build a position when price is making new highs, well they can but the average cost basis will be poor plus they would have to compete with unwanted public demand. Professionals use bad news to buy from the weak hands. Plus these sharp sell offs are well timed to benefit from futures option trades, nice! Buying gold using cash secured puts is good business.

3) Early 2018 the gold price did not make new high (ie MSOS), it was held under $130. Therefore gold did not create break out news headlines in the media which would have attracted the public masses. The informed do not want the public to build up a position, they wish to do this for themselves. New 5 year highs attract the public and professionals do not want this yet. The pubic are used to build positions against or move price to a target cheaply.

4) The opposite to (3), if the professionals really wanted to build up a large futures gold short position it would have been very beneficial to get to gold break out to at least $145 early 2018 to attract the uninformed public masses, thus allowing the professionals to take the other side and crushing the public long positions when price fell.

5) The actions completed by the professionals in (2) and (3) have been done so with little damage to the chart. The professionals who are on a accumulation campaign do not want to break the chart as it to expensive to repair. This is very bullish.

Price action is a history of position preparation for a larger move. The above 5 points suggest gold is enduring an accumulation (unless other evidence emerges in the near future).



Sure fundamentals do matter, and so does market timing (entry, stops and exit), here at readtheticker.com we believe a combination of Gann Angles, Cycles and Wyckoff Logic is the best way to secure better timing than most, after all these methods have been used successfully for 70+ years.
