After a scintillating vacation into the hills (Lake Tahoe) cum snow, etc., and a Birthday celebration (76 today) I'm ready to catch up.

Not much happened last week in Sentiment although the market did its usual volatile swing. Following through with new highs the technicals are getting Bullish - I usually use 3 closes above previous highs/Resistance, so we're not ready to jump in with both feet.
Insider selling has abated, mutual fund flows show a return to MMFs (money markets), but commercial future traders in Gold still show large selling, although word is China is buying Gold.
