CONTINUED WEAKNESS AHEAD FOR GOLD, SILVER AND COPPER??
METALS: 12/20/11: Lower for copper, silver, gold and platinum but no changes technically that I can see. Copper has been falling since the end of October basically trading between 3000 and 3750 from late September while in a long-term downtrend overall. Also, copper is still near a near term critical juncture to hold(32500). In my opinion a close over 3750 breaking out of its range is necessary to move higher again. On the other hand a close below 3000 would lead to a continuation of its downtrend. Therefore, I’m still standing aside for now but 32500 is the price to watch for now. Silver and gold settled lower both looking weak overall with good resistance overhead and not much support nearby. Platinum also settled lower having a similar chart as the silver and gold. SELL SIGNALS FOR SILVER, GOLD AND PLATINUM. CALL FOR DETAILS!
