XAUUSD shows signs of increasing downside momentum

APAC Sales Trading Desk / Saxo Capital Markets
Instrument: XAUUSD
Price target: 1,140.00
Market price: 1,211.50

XAUUSD found resistance just under the 200 day moving average at 1,230 last Friday, July 7.  Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) continues to indicate increasing downside momentum since reaching its recent peak at 1,295 in June 2017.

The close below the 1,220 level completes a bearish double top chart pattern, with a price target of 1,140.

Question: why are you selling @1195 when the current price is 1211? If you short it from current price you'll have a higher margin of safety
Edmund Liu Edmund Liu
Hi Blange, it is because we only want to sell below 1200, the idea is that if it breaks 1200, it should go lower. On the other hand if it goes higher from here, then the trade idea is off. I hope it clarifies!

All clear Edmund!
