This is a sample entry from Don DeBartolo’s email newsletter, Trade Spotlight: Futures, published on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.


There is a trade opportunity based on a Trend Line and potential M.E.T. breakout in the December 2017 Gold futures market. A very short-term Double Bottom Formation is in place with lows at 1262.8 (10/06/17) and 1263.8 (10/27/17). The market closed above an upper trend line today. A break of today’s session high would just about be a break of the 20-day Moving Average as well. There is a seasonal tendency to be long Gold futures through the first part of November.

Buy the December 2017 Gold futures contract on 1282.0 using a stop order, GTC.

Entry is a break of today’s high / Initial Margin = $5,390 Maintenance Margin = $4,900 / FND is 11/30/17

If filled:

Stop loss: Place sell stop at 1268.0, below the 10/31/17 session low, GTC (Initial risk: $1,400)

Target: Place sell limit at 1308.0, below the 10/16/17 session pivot point high, GTC. ($2,600)
