And lately it has been very reliable for entry and exit strategies on gold. Watch our latest video from MarketClubs Adam Hewison on how he has used the Williams indicator for trading gold.
In December Hewsison told us "On charts, gold cut early losses, bouncing off lows at around $1,362 an ounce, a key support level in line with a series of lows set in December". Hewison also said "gold's bounce up from session lows signals that it has found support after falling this week. Every time when gold had gotten down to these levels, it's very close to making a reversal higher. Gold has risen toward its record $1,430.95 an ounce level three times since November but failed each time." Let's go to the video and see how Adam will trade gold using the Williams indicator.
