Sept16/14 - Gaps in the major funds all closed. I am perplexed however. There are still gaps in relative charts compared to major Western currencies. Nonetheless, CEF has put in a clear hammer yesterday. A bounce is a high probability. We will have to observe the action hence forth but it looks generally constructive.

Aug 9/15 - Whilst GDX has closed the gap, GLD is $2.04 and CEF is $0.02 away from doing so. There is a divergence in the EUR/CHF price action... bears watching.The US$ has broken out of its 4 year range but I am waiting till end of the week for confirmation

Aug 5/14 - The US$ is sporting positive divergences. Conversely other currencies are being squeezed. The big news is that GDX has closed the gap and that CEF is only $0.20 from closing its gap.

If this should happen, we'll observe the character of the advance but, so far, things are looking constructive...

Jul 21/14 - Amongst Western currencies, the Canadian $ is the one closest to breaking long term support. The oil price has broken down on the daily and is due a bounce. Bullion funds as well as precious metal funds are all sporting gaps some 5% below current levels.

July 8/14 - I am finding negative divergences everywhere I look in the oil segment. Oil companies, service providers, refiners... everywhere! On top of it, the market does not seem to believe the latest news that ISIS (or the Islamic State) is now in possession of nuclear material in Iraq.... something is definitely rotten in the oil patch....

June 24/14 - It is my opinion that the price of oil is key to maintaining the derivative pyramid standing. The technical picture of the price of oil is horrendous however. The fundamentals are even worse. In fact, the fundamentals of oil are so dismal that not even

Oct 7/13 - This is the power of the Fed. By simultaneously giving trillions to the banks and keeping interest rates artificially low, it can induce corporate re-financing thus boosting the nominal value of the stock market. The direct ramification of this policy is the devastation of purchasing power thus abetting inequality.
