The past few weeks traders and investors have been completely spooked from the surge of negative news and collapsing stock prices. This fear can be seen by looking at the volume on the GLD gold ETF fund.
Gold and Silver have emerged in the last 12 months as the dominant asset group. They led the entire 2000 decade, still gathering disrespect.
Gold has shown impressive strength over the past couple of weeks having risen as high as the $1800 area.

The week was owned once again by talk of a debt ceiling. The markets didn't like it and had a pretty hefty fall and annulled any bullish pattern they had.
I remember my first sin. I committed it when I was six years of age and in first class. I was a shy and skinny kid. Traits I would eventually lose.
It was an exciting trading session Wednesday to say the least… With all the uncertainty floating around it is causing the stock market to be more volatile than normal.
