The Fed controls the gold market. The manipulators control the gold market. The “swaps” control the gold market. The hedge funds control the market. Yes, I have heard about how everyone is controlling the gold market.
In fact, I even hear such ridiculous statements as, “The banks are pushing us down so that they can buy at lower prices.” The problem with this is that the banks have been long for weeks – yet they are still pushing us down?
There is so much misinformation about the gold market, it is truly astounding. A new investor into this complex is probably reeling from all the garbage that is being presented to them about how this market works.
But, I have news for you. This market works just as all other markets work. Once you can calculate appropriate support and resistance points, and understand market structure to identify which one is going to be targeted next, that is all you need to know to understand how to trade the market.
