The Markets:


Charts Courtesy of


Oil rose, the U.S. dollar index fell, and treasuries climbed higher on disappointing jobs data that spurred speculation the Federal Reserve will keep interest rates low for longer.


The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P waffled near unchanged and ended mixed.


Among the big names making news in the market Friday were Disney, Home Depot, Transocean, UCB, JPMorgan, BlackRock, and Sears.


The Commentary:


In what will obviously make the Intercontinental Commodity Exchange crow to annoy the CME Group, the London Bullion Market Association announced that it has picked ICE to manage the Gold Fix.

The new electronic fix will commence in early 2015 with 11 firms intending to participate.

This will be interesting to watch as it ushers in a new age for the gold fix and brings it into the 21th century. One can only hope that is functions smoothly and efficiently and above all, with increased transparency.

At this hour, gold is showing excellent chart performance as shorts are getting pushed out. Here is a quick chart. We now have some solid technical support levels that have formed as well as resistance levels that will make analyzing this market a bit easier.


As you can see, it has pushed past the first zone of resistance noted on the chart. The market looks to be experiencing what I and some other long time traders refer to as a "melt up". It continues to work its way higher as one can see groups of shorts covering as the market refuses to give up much ground on the upside. That causes some who come in to sell into the rally to jump back out which then tends to feed the further upside progress.

I am still most interested in how this thing will close today. Mining stocks are having a nice rally as well with their upside performance bettering that of the actual metal. That is a good sign if one is bullish. Also, that HUI/Gold ratio is correctly somewhat today after striking all time record lows this week.

By the way, there are some reports circulating out of Ukraine that Russian tanks are moving. That is keeping some safe haven buying which can be seen in the upmove in the bonds and the unwillingness of the Yen to move lower.- Dan Norcini
