Gold Shorts Trying To Exert Their Muscle On Hourly
XAUUSD is in the bearish area as per the daily chart on the left. The hourly on the right: gold bears are trying to push price down and the EMAs have crossed bearishly in this regard. However, we note the previous candle has a buying tail, indicating that the bears are fighting support at current levels. Angle and separation to the downside by the EMAs and a bearish cross potentially align short-term traders with the daily. If signals occur, movement of stochastic to 20 level and maintenance of that level increase chance of a successful trade. Trend following indicators may be useful in this case as a potential exit tool. Stop above hourly high in conjunction with risk management techniques.
