Silver struggled as well, down 4%. Copper was down a couple of percent. Crude and Natural gas were both down 1.1%. While it wasn't ugly, a few charts turned over.

This weeks Countdown focuses on the strong oil price at $58.60 and the gold price around $1300. There is a real chance that the next two weeks see explosive moves in commodities stocks.

Crude Is Breaking Out - Should You Buy The Hype

by Greg Schnell

Oil has been breaking out. What to do if you missed the giant rally so far? Should you get on board? Let's work through the charts to see if this is worth participating in. The first chart is US based Oil - $WTIC. The downward trend on the KST is turning up and the KST is just moving above the zero line now.
