Current Gold Prices – The big secret behind gold’s $100 collapse

by Adam Hewison

The question many investors are asking themselves today is, just what happened to the price of gold?

Did the world change? Did the problems in Europe go away? Did all the states manage to find funding to cover their deficits?

No, none of that happened, but gold still dropped $100.

It’s all about market perception and timing, two things we’ve talked about many times before on the Trader’s Blog. I don’t know about you, but I remember when gold was over $1,400 an ounce and all I could see on TV where ads from gold companies extolling the virtues of buying gold as it is real money. Since the fall, I expect we’ll see fewer of these advertisements on TV and in print.

So what did happen to gold?

Well, for starters there were some key technical levels broken. If you’re a gold trader, but not a technical trader, you really need to learn how to read charts and see what other traders are doing.

Secondly, there did not appear to be any other news to drive this market higher. When that happens, markets tend to fall under their own weight, and as many retail investors purchased gold, there was nobody on the other side of the market to support gold.

So the question is, is the move over in gold? That’s a tricky one. I want to show you in today’s video exactly how we’re looking at this very emotional market. Every time we have created a video indicating that there would be some pullback in gold, we were bombarded by the gold bugs saying that we’re crazy. When you see a market pullback as much as gold has, you have to have some respect for the market itself.

If we look at the price of gold today at approximately $1,330, it pretty much equates to what happened in the last 30 years when gold was trading at a high of $850 an ounce. If you factor in inflation over the last 30 years, gold is probably lower now than it was 30 years ago. So how good an investment is gold? I think gold is more of a barometer of fear than anything else. Clearly there are other investments in the marketplace that have better returns.

Let’s get back to gold and what we think will happen. In this short video we analyze the market using our “Trade Triangles,” the Williams%R, and the MACD indicator.

Forex Trading Strategy – Forget The Dollar

Most people immediately think about the dollar when Forex markets are mentioned. Sadly, the main reason is its declining value against the other major currencies. There are several ways to look at the foreign exchange markets and one of them is to compare other major currencies. For example, you could be looking at the euro against the Japanese yen or any number of combinations in between.

In today’s short video we will be looking at the Swiss franc versus the Japanese yen over the past 12 months. I’m going to be showing you a very simple, yet very effective, approach that has proven to be 72% accurate in 2010-2011 when trading this particular cross-rate.

In fact, using this easy to understand approach, you would have made just seven trades in approximately 12 months. As you can see, this is not a hyperactive approach. However, it will put the odds of making money on your side if you stick to the game plan. As in all trading, having a game plan in foreign exchange is extremely important.

I hope you find this video informative and educational. As always our videos are free to watch and there are no registration requirements. All we ask is that you let us know what you think by leaving a comment, talk about us on your blog, Tweet to a friend or share us on Facebook.

Secrets of the 52 Week High Rule: Free Video

Over 30 years ago I learned from a very successful trader, a trade secret I’ve never shared on the web before.  In fact, I only shared this trading secret with a few friends during that time.

I learned this trading secret from a trader named Bill… I am keeping his last name private as Bill is a very low-key guy and shuns any publicity.

Using his special trading technique, Bill made millions and millions of dollars from his office. Now for the first time, I am going to share with you the exact same technique that Bill used so successfully for so many years. The best part is that this technique is still working more than 30 years after I learned about it. Now it’s time for the next generation of traders to learn Bill’s secret.

Bill didn’t even have a name for this killer trading technique. I named it “The 52-week new highs on Friday rule”.
