I intended to take a few weeks off. However, as the Dow Jones Index closed the week up only 1.69%, just three hundred points from making a new all-time high, I was motivated to make a few comments on the stock market.
Nothing significant happened last week on Wall Street. The Dow Jones chart below looks identical to the one I could have published last week. And as we haven’t seen any days of extreme market volatility since March 1st , the Dow Jones’...
The gold market has been under considerable pressure recently from the “policy makers.” Gold’s step sum has dropped a net of six down days since March 7th, but despite all that selling, the price of gold has been holding up pretty well.
Some positive developments for gold at the COMEX need to be noted. Since January 29th Open Interest surged 137,249 contracts (Blue Plot) without retarding the advance in the price of gold (Red Plot) as much as it would have in the past.

The bulls made some progress this past week. But they have a lot to prove before we can believe the bull market in stocks has resumed. Just look at all the BEV Zeros below (new all-time highs) from January 2013 to May 2015; that’s what...
How did the market perform this week? No extreme days of market breadth or volatility. That’s a positive. And the Dow Jones was off its lows of last week. However since January 12th it has yet to break above its BEV -10% line in the...
