ΣL Gold Composite - 6th October 2023 | @ 56 Days
Last trade: + 4.23% | 'A' class signal detected in Sigma-L Gold composite (XAU vs USD/EUR/CAD/GBP/CHF/AUD/NZD/SGD/JPY). Avg. wavelength of 56 days - 13 iterations since Aug 2021. Currently troughing
The beacon in Gold continues to beat in a sublime fashion as price moves to the next trough iteration shortly. The larger periodic component around 140 days is pushing down so watch for a possible early peak (left translated) in this shorter wave as we approach the end of October.
Summary of the most recent trade enacted with this signal and according to the time prediction detailed in the previous post for this instrument, linked below.

Time Frequency Analysis
Time frequency charts (learn more) below will typically show the cycle of interest against price, the bandpass output alone and the bandwidth of the component in the time frequency heatmap, framed in white. If a second chart is displayed it will usually show highpassed price with the extracted signal overlaid for visual clarity.
Current Signal Detail & Targets
Here we give more detail on the signal relative to speculative price, given the detected attributes of the component. In most cases the time target to hold a trade for is more important, given we focus on cycles in financial markets. Forthcoming trough and peak ranges are based upon the frequency modulation in the sample (learn more).

Current Signal Phase
This is ‘how far along’ the cycle is in it’s period at now time and is related to the predicted price action direction.
Current Signal Frequency Modulation (FM)
This is how much, on average, the signal detected varies in frequency (or wavelength) over the whole sample. A lower variance is better and implies better profitability for the component. Frequency usually modulates relatively slowly and over several iterations.
Current Signal Amplitude Modulation (AM)
This is how much the component gains or loses power (price influence) across the sample, on average. Amplitude modulation can happen quite quickly and certainly is more evident than frequency modulation in financial markets. The more stable the modulation the better.
