Gold Trader - Trade 6

26/5/2016: GOLD TRADER TRADE 6: LONG GOLD AT $1,228; STOP AT CLOSE BELOW $1,210. POSSIBLE DC1 DAY 1, NEW IC. HOLD FOR 6% GAIN OR MAXIMUM OF 15 TRADING DAYS.

16/6/2016: Gold Trader trade 6 closed this morning at $1,308 for a profit of +6.5% bringing the total return since inception to 7.8%. I entered trade 6 at $1,228 on 26 May 2016 with an objective of buying the start of DC1 of a new IC and holding for a 6% gain or a maximum of 15 trading days. The stop was placed on a close below $1,210, which did not trigger. (Gold PowerTrader had a hard stop, which triggered intra-day on 30th May 2016).


 
 

I have been following the short-term (daily) and medium-term (investor) cycles of the gold market for over 10 years and have identified specific patterns, a rhythm, to the market that repeats with regularity as the daily and investor cycles ebb and flow. The consistency of these patterns peaked my interest and I started recording more detailed analyses of the cycles starting back in 2010. Today, I have data on over 60 daily cycles and those strong, repeatable patterns are clearly visible. Gold Trader and Gold PowerTrader have emerged from many hours of data analysis to test the trading signals my research has uncovered. Gold PowerTrader is a geared version of the Gold Trader investment strategy. Both strategies have the potential to deliver very strong returns for investors over time, in a risk controlled way. I have summarised my analysis in the table below.


Gold typically moves in daily cycles (DC's) of 20-28 trading days per cycle. There are generally 4 or 5 DC's in each medium-term "Investor" cycle (IC). In bull markets, DC1, DC2 and DC3 are strong, followed by selling in DC4 as sentiment is re-set and price returns to the longer-term upward sloping moving average. In bear markets, DC1 and possibly DC2 are positive followed by heavy selling in DC3 and DC4 as the major trend is down and the bear market pulls the gold price lower.

Gold Trader and Gold PowerTrader focus on capturing the strongest and weakest parts of gold's daily cycles, buying daily cycle lows, selling daily cycle highs and holding for 10-15 trading days, depending on the cycle count. Identifying the daily cycle highs and lows allow me to effectively manage my risk on each trade. The strategy aims to capture +5% to 6% profit per trade while risking just 2% each time and has a win rate in excess of 70%.
