It's Thursday afternoon and I thought that, with today's bounce back rally in the Comex metals, we should update the charts and give you some levels to watch into Friday's close.

It was another brutal day for the stockroaches as the global markets continue to contract faster than the Fed contracts its balance sheet. And it looks like next week may hold more of the same.

So we begin today with these two charts. The first is a weekly S&P and the second is a...

The week begins with all kinds of nervous volatility in the "stock market". And did you see crude, too? But this combined to send the Comex metals higher and that's just fine with all of us.

A lengthy general discussion led to a discussion of these charts in order:...

There's so much going on today that I'm not sure where to start. Stocks plunging. Bonds rallying. Brexit talks. Economic data. Trade war. The list seems endless so where do we begin?
