hope you are all well and doing good with your businesses.
The above chart shows how Gold has been swinging for the last two weeks.
Please note that I modified the to 88 in order to follow price action above and below 200 .
Violet line are just levels.
Despite the news published yesteraday by Reuters at 17:30 that the US-China trade deal was delayed (such news initially scared the market), Gold has been pushed down by 200SMA because, IMHO, positive news of a forthcoming happy ending are prevailing anyhow.
Despite the delay, comments from both US and Chinese representatives remained very optimistic.
In order to put in evidence where this swing is happening, please find below a screenshot of the 1H chart with parameters unchanged compared to the previous ones used in the 15m chart.
The area inside the circle is the move considered in this post.
Below some questions I am asking myself in this moment:
1) is this chart usefull? what does it say?
2) the swings are self evident imho but where should its center of gravity be placed?
3) will the 200SMA keep pushing down?
4) where are the opportunities?
5) is the period xy a distribution period just ended?
6) could it be unfolding a Zig-Zag?
If you have any questions or comment to add please do not hesitate to post it.
