Gold & Gold Miners Are Closing in on a Major Bottom
A Bullishness Vibe in the Air as Traders Mover From Bonds into Stocks
This week may provide some trading opportunities for us if all goes well now that most traders and investors are all giddy about stocks again. Last week we saw money move out of bonds and into stocks and the bullishness vibe in the air reminds of many market peaks just before a 5%+ correction in stocks.
Volatility Bounces Bottom Awaiting Bad News or Selling to Strike!
Over the past 5 months we have seen volatility steadily decline as stocks and commodities rise in value. The 65% drop in the volatility index is now trading at a level which has triggered many selloffs in the stock market over the years as investors become more and more comfortable and greedy with rising stock prices.
For the first time since the last week of December of 2011, the S&P 500 Index closed lower on the weekly chart. Recently I have been discussing the overbought nature of stocks based on a variety of indicators. However, the real question that should be asked is whether last week was just a short term event or if we see sustained selling in coming weeks.

Happy New Year, from everyone here at The Crude Oil Trader!
We hope this week's price action didn't catch you off guard? It was profitable but you really had to be on the ball to pocket the gains.....
Anyways, we just wanted to wish you a New Year and thank you for being part of my success in 2011 before it’s too late.
Typically, the week before Christmas, stocks and commodities drift higher due to the lack of participants. Light volume favours higher prices, which is why stocks want to rise going into the holiday season.
The big money players, like hedge fund managers, are finished for the year. They’re sitting on the sidelines enjoying the holiday season while waiting for their year-end bonus checks.
Precious Metals, Equities and Crude Oil Long Term Outlook Part II
Is This December Similar to 2007 & 2008 for Gold & Stocks?
Thus far in 2011 the overall stock market movement has been much different from what we had in 2010. This year we have seen nothing but sideways to lower prices with wild price swings on a day to day basis. There just has not been any really solid trends to take advantage of this year.
