Live Day Trading Gold – Early Overnight Session 7-7-2017

The gold market had a swift and surprising sell-off in the overnight market at approx 7 pm et. Trading in the direction of the swing auction two short orders were placed. Only one was filled as the market came to within 2 ticks of the higher short entry order. The sell-off after the entry took the market down to where we expected (near the low of the session). The first contract was filled at a plus 15 tick profit. The second contract was stopped out for an 8 tick profit. The net result was a 23 tick profit ($230).
