Setups for This Week:
Primary View:
  • Last week, the price managed to escape a flag pattern, which triggered a buy signal.

Alternative View:
  • If the price retreats back within the flag pattern, it shall signal a sell scenario.
Primary View:
  • Gold experienced a substantial rise last week due to the inverse head-and-shoulder formation and a bounce off the 38.2% Fibonacci level.
  • Despite the week concluding with a minor correction, the buy signal on gold remains on.
Alternative View:
  • Should the price dip below the 38.2% Fibonacci level, it will act as a strong signal to go short.
Primary View:
  • The previous week culminated in a significant bounce off the long-term up-trend line (green). Despite the prevailing strong downtrend, this presents a compelling opportunity to go long.
Alternative View:
  • A price breach of the green line would suggest an opportunity to go short in the long term.
