Very good observations. Your approach and findings are consistent with what I have proposed from a different method. I have seen this as a Phase I of a new bull and in that phase stocks return to "known Values" which I have suggested are around HUI 350, where the point of recognition was in both the preceding bull and bear markets.

Oil: $55 - $60 Here We Come

I have been "all in" in the PM sector since early FEB. Regarding oil I am somewhat neutral, but on sidelines. I don't think bear market is over yet is my analysis, but not interested in playing downside since upside PMs is the place to be right now.

Wow, does Gary realize his tone of voice is extremely condescending to those on the other side of the trade?
