This is a buy signal in gold.  (And the other metals.)  This may be the beginning of a blow-off.  We would move our stops to 3% under yesterday’s low.  Depending on your appetite for risk (or desire for profits) this would be an add on place.

In our impatience to avoid a flushing action in the indices we were too clever by half in selling and now have to reestablish our positions.  We pointed out to readers that it was a trading tactic and recommended against it for readers.  Now you see why.

This is a buy signal in the major indices.  This wave refuses to die, or even to retract enough to allow the construction of a proper trendline.

    Hope the gold signal/movement stays positive for a while rather than the whipsaws we have seen in other instruments.
