News
Those telling themselves stocks, bonds, gold, etc., should be this high or low, most likely are not listening to the message of the market. For example, the majority was quite bearish on gold when it entered a focused bull opportunity on 02/09/16 (see COT Matrix).

The following comment, a warning to subscribers to respect the power of the invisible hand, was copied to all gold reviews after 02/09:

Gold's trend, a relatively fresh up impulse with plenty of skeptics, could be leading these events. The bullish focused up impulse; therefore, must be respected until it flips. A transition from up to down impulse could last weeks weeks or months.
