Will Platinum lead the way for the other metals?

METALS: 1/25/11: Higher for copper and gold while lower for silver and platinum. Although copper has been making lower lows and highs since the beginning of January its overall trend is still higher. It’s important in my opinion that the March contract holds the 42500 area. Silver made its lowest low and close since November 29th and gold its lowest low since November 3rd before rallying to settle higher in reversal type action. Silver has actually struggled since December and gold since November even with making new contract highs along the way. Both these markets have acted overbought for a while helped along by the public being basically long in my opinion. I look for very volatile markets to continue but the overtrend to be down for a while. Platinum settled lower but is still in a BULL FLAG in my opinion leading the way for the metals. SIGNALS FOR COPPER AND PLATINUM. SELL SIGNALS FOR SILVER AND GOLD.CALL FOR DETAILS!
