The yen, whose behavior corresponds closely to gold’s, began 2019 with a giant leap that slightly pierced the 0.94148 midpoint resistance of the pattern shown. This is bullish but would become still more so if the futures can close for two...
Incredible! The Dow swung nearly 570 points on Tuesday without breaking above or below the previous day’s range.  This is what chartists refer to as an “inside day.” In fact, the blue chip average didn’t traverse even half of Monday’s epic...
Gold continues to make headway in herky-jerky fashion, failing to satisfy bulls but also denying bears something to cheer about. On Monday, the February COMEX contract rallied to within a millimeter of the 1240.20 Hidden Pivot target shown.
