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

Comments for Thursday, March 25, 2010

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


Lower closes yesterday for copper, gold, silver and platinum. Copper is still in a BULL TRIANGLE unable so far to get through a good resistance area. My stance on gold and silver has now changed to down-trends for both. Also gold and silver have been making lower highs and lows since their highs last December. Gold has been moving basically sideways since last January in the short term. Finally, I now have a SELL SIGNAL for gold but just missed one in silver but am removing my buy for silver. Platinum was hurt by Tuesday’s close and is now forming a possible top. BUY SIGNALS FOR COPPER AND PLATINUM. SELL SIGNAL FOR GOLD. CALL FOR DETAILS!
