If you are a Gold Bull, which without saying you are (else you'd lack the common sense to be reading this piece, let alone own Gold directly or by right), then this is your kind of market "correction" wherein price rather than falling is...
What? Apparently there was a major StateSide election just nine trading days ago? Are we sure about this? Did someone tell the world's most important markets? If one did not know, surely one would not think so. To wit the primary BEGOS...

The notion inherit of our prior two missives remains intact: that a Team Red election victory is "priced into the market". Rather were the tilt be to Team Blue, as we'd penned "...Gold would by now have soared and the stock market by now...
