Same Play – Different Act [traderdannorcini]

Nothing much has changed since my last post which is why I have refrained from posting any recent comments since this past weekend.
Gold is stuck below $1785 – $1800 and Silver is stuck below $35. Until these respective resistance levels are convincingly cleared, the market is going to sit here with the risk of the shorter-term oriented speculative longs getting impatient and bailing out.
Thus far bears cannot break down either market but neither can the bulls blow past the obvious overhead capping action. This week’s COT report will be informative in allowing us to see what kind of , if any, spec liquidation has been occuring.
Some sort of trigger seems to be needed for a fresh leg higher. With crude oil getting thumped lower today and now below $90, the initial rush to buy everything looking like a commodity on the heels of the QE3 juggernaut, has obviously dissipated. Both of the precious metals need the inflationary expectation psyche to advance strongly. Crude oil weakness is currently undercutting that; so is weakness across the grain complex I might add.
