Using Price Action to Hedge Around USD While Focusing on Gold

Using Price Action to Hedge Around USD While Focusing on Gold

Talking Points:

- We used price action to line up a USD-Hedge setup across EUR/USD and GBP/USD, under the premise that USD-volatility would likely be a point that we could build around.

- We had discussed the short-side setup in GBP/USD just a day earlier in the Technical piece on the pair. The entry protocol was waiting for a 1.4371 print before getting short, which happened earlier today.

- We looked at the fact that few currencies appear to be backed by Central Banks that would welcome strength into their currencies, and this could further the attractiveness of long Gold setups.

- We spent some time looking at flag-formations, with a specific focus on bear flags that had recently formed or come back into play on EUR/USD and SPX500. We discussed some of the more recent bear flags to develop in equity markets in the early February article, Global Stocks are Working on Synchronous Bear Flag Formations.
