What’s Up, What’s Down: Metals in the Spotlight
Comments for Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Monday’s Price Action
Futures and options trading is speculative in nature and involves substantial risk of loss. Futures and options trading is not suitable for all investors.
Higher closes yesterday for copper, silver, gold and platinum. All of the metals were hurt by last week’s action but are still in long term uptrends overall. Each metal made a new recent low before closing higher. Platinum looks the weakest while at the lower end of a support area and the closest to a sell signal at this time. Remember to keep an eye on the dollar which has been setting up for a possible rally. This could knock down the metals along with many other commodities that were helped higher by the weak dollar including the indices. BUY SIGNALS FOR COPPER, SILVER, GOLD AND PLATINUM. CALL FOR DETAILS!
