A Look At The Current Gold & Oil Trading Patterns Unfolding In The Market (USO, GLD, SLV, UGL, AGQ)

March 29, 2012 1:30pm NYSE:AGQ NYSE:GLD

Chris Vermeulen:  The past two months we have seen all the focus from traders and investors be on the equities market. And rightly so and stocks run higher and higher. But there are two commodities that look ready to explode being gold (NYSEARCA:GLD) and oil (NYSEARCA:USO); actually three if you count

silver (NYSEARCA:SLV).

Below are the charts of gold futures and crude oil 4 hour charts. Each candle stick is 4 hours allows us to look back 1-2 months while still being able to see all the intraday price action (pivot highs, pivot lows, strong volume spikes and if they were buyers or sellers…).

The 4 hour chart is one time frame most traders overlook but from my experience I find it to be the best one for spotting day trades, momentum trades and swing trades which pack a powerful yes quick punch.

As you can see below with the annotated charts both gold (NYSEARCA:UGL) and silver (NYSEARCA:AGQ) are setting up for higher prices in the next 1-2 weeks from a technical point of view. That being said we may see a couple days of weakness first before they start moving up again.
