A Day Late...

and $1,000.00 short. Due to my desktop computer blowing up on me ( my first traumatic time) and buying a new one with countless hours of mental anguish, this comes on Tuesday this week.

Post-holiday ennui set in with sellers taking profits from the record highs, yet sentiment grew more complacent. Put/calls went from 52 to 60, although the VIX did rise. Declines vastly outnumbered the advances, with New Highs still positive.Inv. Intell Bears dropped to the 15 handle, not seen in awhile. Commercial gold traders foresaw something last week with record selling - 166K, a new high, and gold dropped $30 on Monday, 10 more today. Must have been the Barron's bullish interview!

  1. Silver is usually trading in sync with Gold but silver often gets more volatile than gold.
