Gold is also one of my favorite futures markets for many reasons. It gives us plenty of trading opportunities each day, its cheap to access the market with low commissions and you don’t need a big account to trade it.
Gold has great breakouts, and when you can read the tape and ‘feel’ the rhythm of the price action you can anticipate and find reliable trading opportunities from its large price reversals.
We can find reliable trading opportunities every day with gold futures contracts, and its something we will always look forward to trading in the trade room.
