After a whirlwind wedding in Redding, I settled in to do the latest Sentiment readings:
Commercial gold traders still remain high in selling - down slightly from the prior week; insider selling of stocks is still also high - both officers/board and 10% owners.
The AAII Bulls jumped up 6 % points, Bears down slightly.
I shall be off again on vaca next week with no means to update this column.

With record numbers of dollars coming out of Money Market Funds, mostly into the crowded trade of short term bonds, anyone who has a minimal knowledge of covered call options and/or an interest in hedging stock market exposure might want to check out: brentleonard.com for an alternative strategy that is low-risk as well as highly rewarding. For those of you wanting more details and actual trading results, a new book is available for $14.95 at Amazon.com: Zero (IN)Tolerance
