Back In The Saddle

Fri, Jun 17, 2011 - 3:54pm

I apologize for my absence over the past 24 hours. Mrs F and Mrs Sweetness planned a little, overnight golf and gambling extravaganza for Sweetness and I last night. The location was rather remote and I had very little internet access. Doesn't look like I missed much, anyway.

Here are some updated charts. Crude is quite intriguing as the spread of WTI vs Brent is about $20 or 21+%. I don't know if that is some kind of record but it has to be pretty close. Gold is trying to escape the clutches of that nasty "dome" pattern that it found itself in earlier this week and silver is about as exciting as Free Metamucil Day at Ridgecrest Manor.

Lastly, Trader Dan has found that his limited free time is making his blog difficult to keep current. When he does post, however, its usually a doozy. He just wrote a terrific summary on several of the items we cover here. I encourage you to head over and check it out.

I promise a more "extensive" weekly review tomorrow, complete with some interesting longer-term charts. That's it for now, however. Turd needs a nap. TF

Yeah, I think that "Dome" thing is already busted.

Trader Dan and Turd

Maybe you guys should combine blogs and share the work? Just call this my extremely stupid idea of the day. Both of you are probably too ruggedly independent though.

Friday, Time to open a Samuel Adams...

Friday, Time to open a Samuel Adams and kick back with Kid Rock. The new site is great which is now my #2 favorite starting with DRUDGE REPORT, TF Metals Report, Zero Hedge, USA Watchdog, SurvivalBlog, several YouTube favorites and Bloomberg before hitting the sack during the work week. The weekend is 'off the grid' time.

Thanks for starting the new site.

resistance levels

$1545-1550 level is a very big deal. Once breached with authority, $1600-1700 is in the bag, and probably quickly.

Sounds like the Turd is hungover again. C'mon Man! The weekend is just getting started!

Gold priced in all currencies.

I have often looked at turds analysis while also looking at other currencies. When turd has pointed out possible negative chart patterns in USD I simply checked out other currencies. It usually calms my fears. Im glad dan mentioned this perspective also. Gold IS acting as a currency and in a global contest for monetary debasement all currencies should be closely watched. I think it would be great to see turds analysis of gold charts in other currencies at least once in awhile. Love the new site and all the work you've done.

Some other Juniors doing the same

@ Blue Sky

Yes, I've noticed that several juniors were up significantly at the very last minutes of the trading day on very high volume (Record breaking volume on the charts that I was looking). This could mean that some of the shorts are beginning to cover or maybe somebody big is stepping in (or a fund buying).

Mining Stocks

I am stubbornly hanging onto my mining shares (TKRFF), fearing that I might miss the announcement of drilling results and the immediate pop in price that is expected. But holding is painful. Thanks for the post from Dan Norcini, Turd. Sometimes I forget to go over and read his site.
