Now don't take that title too negatively: 'tis nothing short of marvelous to finally find Gold well up and away from The Box (1280-1240) which had been its centerpiece trading area for the last six years, let alone just four weeks ago...
Greetings this time 'round from Squaw Valley, where -- as has Gold piled onto price throughout these past seven weeks -- the snow depth for skiing still is piled seven feet high at the 8,200-foot (2,500-metre) level. Skiing in July? Get it...
Two weeks ago Gold ~finally~ surpassed the long-sought level of Base Camp 1377: check off that milestone box! Then during this past week, Gold met (per the above opening Scoreboard) our "conservative" forecast high for this year of 1434:...
