Wasn’t it just last week I thought the market was finished?  Well, never mind, as the rally resumed, making anyone uber-bearish regret their stance.

I don’t think we’re quite out of the woods yet – I’m permanently fearful! -- but for now the market is on firm ground.

I’ve noticed more and more commentators talking about gold lately, both for and against.  I’ve never been a fan, but respect its great run.  That run looks over, although the goldbug community sees this as a great buying opportunity.  

If I saw support anywhere, I might agree.  Instead, it looks like a lot of downside still to come.

You can’t talk about gold without also talking about the dollar.  There, the future looks brighter. However,  I’d wait for a close above that resistance before jumping in.
