First Gold: A mere seven days ago we were singing Gold's praises as its price for two consecutive weeks moved higher in bold defiance of the otherwise Short weekly parabolic trend. "Like salmon spawning upstream" we wrote; that was Gold's...
Gold's settling out the abbreviated trading week this past Thursday at 1977 was the yellow metal's second-highest year-to-date weekly close, bettered only by that ending 11 March at 1992.
Obviously the gold line is Gold, the anticipated geo-political spike 'n fade starkly giving it away. But you WestPalmBeachers down there may be stuck as to the other line, the colour of which is green (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge...)
