How to trade the trading range




I find pretty interesting the Gold chart, please have a look below, it`s 1 hour chart.

I remain bullish on gold and retracement are good buy opportunities.

You can see the trading range and this is a breakout strategy so I placed a pending order just above 1215 and it has been triggered. To be considered a good signal we need a breakout with high volatility and volume and this was a good example.

Trading Ideas on GOLD




The bearish trend seems to be over on Gold and during bearish market we might see a run up on gold and silver.

A breakout strategy might give some good results on commodities, always keep in mind that the stop loss is the best friend for a trader and be ready to change your view if the market is going in a different direction.

We entered this trade at the breakout of area 1218, pullback and a new run up. We might open a new buy > 1225 and target the previous high near area 1236.

This might be a good strategy especially in presence of a weak stock market.
Where would you place your STOP LOSS?

You can place you STOP LOSS in area 1205 or few ticks above your entry price and avoid a loss while your trading is in profit.

Theresa May is trying to fight after attempts to eject her from the government, warning that Brexit could be cancelled




Theresa May has insisted she never considered resigning despite facing a coup from dozens of her own MPs furious about her Brexit deal.

She warned the plotters they risk Britain’s future — claiming that if she gets toppled, the country may never end up leaving the EU.

The UK government, and particularly PM Theresa May, are still to face some bumps ahead. So far, 24 members of May’s party have written no-confidence letters, half the number needed to challenge her leadership. The rebellion was a result of most Tories thinking that the Brexit agreement sealed in the Cabinet last week doesn’t honour the Referendum result.

The Brexit news has obviously affected the GBPUSD and those next 7 days will be very crucial, and we are expecting to see big movements and large volatility.

The technical analysis readings have been aligned with the fundamental background. The GBPUSD is showing bearish signals. The 20 DMA, 20 SMA, 200 EMA are indicating a down trend for the GBPUSD.

Renewed selling pressure below the 1.2800 level could see the pair retesting last week’s low at 1.2723, and even extending its decline beyond the yearly one at 1.2690, particularly if political turmoil in the UK deepens.

Support levels: 1.2810 1.2765 1.2725
Resistance levels: 1.2845 1.2890 1.2530

Increased chances of a leadership challenge and a ‘no-deal’ Brexit: how this is impacting EUR/GBP




EUR/GBP rallied hard on Thursday, making for one of the biggest session’s gains.

The move comes as the U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s leadership has been called into question following the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab cabinet minister Esther McVey resignations less than just 24 hours after she PM May had received the approval of her cabinet for a draft Brexit plan.

This has increased the chances of a leadership challenge and a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. subsequently, investors can demand greater risk premia of UK assets, which they say could mean another 3 to 4% fall for GBP. That would then be sending EUR/GBP back towards the 0.91 region – (this makes sense given that sterling positions were shorter than they are now, according to recent futures market data, than they were back at the start of 2017).

“International investors now have to weigh up the chances of a leadership challenge against the Prime Minister, Theresa May, in addition to the (seemingly declining) chances of the withdrawal deal being approved by UK parliament in December.

EURGBP eyes further upside pressure on bullish rally. A violation if seen will turn risk towards the 0.8930 level. Further up, resistance comes in at 0.8990 level. Area 0.8710 could be considered a good support area near the EMA 100 on a weekly chart. At this point we can expect the start of a new uptrend and retracements in these cases can always be assessed as good opportunities to open new positions.

On 4 hours chart we could consider a good entry point > 0.8780 for new long positions.
