What’s up, fellas. Our forex trading signals on Gold did remarkably well. We made hay while the sun shines two times. Firstly, by shorting the Gold near $1,245 before FOMC and taking profit on it near $1,240. Later, the priced in Gold reversed and help us secure profits on our long-term trading signal with a target of $1,256. Check out our quick entry here for today…

Why Gold Reversed On Fed Rate Hike?

Fellas, let’s recall our Pre-FOMC update entitled Considering Multiple Scenarios – How to Trade Gold Today?The 1.50% interest rate was already priced in.

Since the Fed release came as no surprise, the investors exchanged the oversold metal with the greenback.

Technical View – Gold // XAUUSD

As discussed earlier, the Gold already hit our two targets $1,251 and  $1,259. But now, Gold seems to take a breather below $1,259. So, here is our chance to cash the opportunity. The Doji candle on the 4-hour chart is extending additional support to the selling bias.

Gold // XAUUSD Trading Idea

Fellas, I’m not placing any long-term position in Gold for the moment. It’s better to wait for the market to absorb this shocks given by Fed. However, I just shared a forex trading signal to open a sell below $1,256 to target $1,251.50 with a stop above $1,260. Good luck!
