I'm curious: Any spot or gold futures traders here? I've spent years avoiding gold simply because I disliked the idea of a metal that had more value attributed to it from perception of value than actual utility (something like only 18% taken out of the ground is used industrially.) ..but in the last few weeks I've been taking a hard look at how it trades around dollar and political sensitive events, and so far I like what I see. So, any gold traders out there? Scalpers? Swingers? What's your general approach? So far I've had a little luck scalping on short time frames, based only on seeing recent price moves and sequences repeat, but obviously the risk of getting run over by the herd of stampeding traders during a critical event is rather high... so I'm still refining my trade rules for it..
