What’s Up, What’s Down: Spotlight on Metals

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


Lower for copper, for gold, silver and platinum. All of the metals continue to be in uptrends overall with platinum still leading the way. Copper settled lower again continuing to struggle in its attempt to get through its resistance area. Gold has really been going sideways since the middle of last December now forcing me back to a neutral position at this time. It’s never able to close over 1150 basis the April contract which would have confirmed my buy signal. On the other hand silver’s poor close is now settling up for a possible sell signal. Platinum was hurt by Friday’s close but still looks strong overall. BUY SIGNALS FOR COPPER GOLD, SILVER AND PLATINUM. CALL FOR DETAILS!
