What’s Up, What’s Down: Gold Continues to Lead the Way

Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Wednesday’s Price Action


Lower closes yesterday for copper, platinum, silver and gold. Copper made its
highest high in nine trading days and then closed lower in reversal type
action. Now the retracement higher could be over and copper resumes its
overall downtrend. However, we’ll just have to see. Gold and silver
both settled lower but no changes technically for either one one of them. Gold
continues to lead the way while silver has been in a choppy market over the
last few weeks mainly do to gold/silver spreading. Platinum made its highest
high in a month and also settled lower in reversal type action possibly
meaning its retracement rally is also over. BUY SIGNALS FOR GOLD AND SILVER.
