Gold Wednesday II 08. Aug

xau 5 days cont

This chart is just a continuation of today's earlier post for Gold Intraday. As displayed above, the 17:50 mark proved very significant this Wednesday. By looking for a larger move just after that timewindow based on the last 5 day average, made it possible to enter a position with a tight stop loss, and minimizing the downside risk to a trade. At present, you could thereby moved a stop loss to your entery level, of exited the entire or parts for the position with a solid profit. Note that the 17:50 o'clock window proved to be an inverse move of the last few days. Today's graph is an example of the importance of time, rather than direction.

As you can see, the last days shows very little movements until about noon. The next timingpoint of significance seems to be around 16:40, an hour and ten minutes after the US open. The US lunch time just after 20:00 also stands out where renewed strenght comes into play for the remainder of the sessions.

It is importaint to note todays set timing points not necessarly presists in the future, and that these points in time very easily may change due to different factors. Be aware that significant timing points or certain times may act as support or resistance to a pricelevel, and history shows that these pricelevels could be triggerpoints to acceleration of an already existing trend - for shorter or longer.

09:30 appears close to a price highpoint three times of the five days, and close to a price lowpoint two times.

The 15:00 o'clock mark could look like an accellerating time where more sellers steps in ex. yellow line.
