For the Ladies – Gold and Cotton

The women I know love clothes and gold and I think both at least at the wholesale level will be going on sale in the very near future. Cotton prices have been dancing the up-sloping trend line for the past 6 months as seen on the chart below. Current prices have July futures higher by […]

Gold is currently $225 off it lows established in late June, mounting a very impressive rally in the last two months. The gold bugs are back in the media as a bull market may be re-emerging. My stance is prices appreciated too fast and too much. Does this mean I am a bear…NO…it just means […]
