GOLD AGAIN FLIRTS WITH PREVIOUS RECORD HIGHS
METALS: 2/24/11: Higher for silver and gold while lower for copper and platinum. Copper closed lower for the sixth trading session in a row making its worst low and close now close to a sell signal while needing to hold the 42500 area basis the May contract. Silver made a new CONTRACT HIGH CLOSE helped along by the trouble in the middle east. Gold had its best close since January 3rd now very close to a breakout and a buy signal although not far from its contract highs anyway. Platinum continues to fall with its worst low since January 11th also close to a sell signal. There is good support for platinum around 1750 (April). BUY SIGNALS FOR SILVER AND PLATINUM.
