The Dollar Dips Again After The Opening Bell

Nearly every trading session when the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX-M2) are stronger before the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) they will sell off after the open.

Gasoline Nears Six Month Highs, Here Is The Reason

Nearly everyday we hear about the problems in the Middle East with Iran.

On December 16, 2011 the United States Gasoline Fund (NYSE:UGA) was trading as low as $45.17 a share. This morning the UGA is trading higher by 0.64 cents to $53.14 a…

Don't Believe The Hype

Nearly everyday since December the media reports how good things are getting in the economy. This report was better than expected, that report is better than expected and everyone is working again. While the economy might be healing in some way investors must ask themselves why the Federal Reserve is continuing to promote low rates until late 2014. The central bank is clearly dangling the carrot in front of the institutions to buy equities and inflate this market higher. Gold is the…

Can The Market Inflate Without Gold?

At this time, gold and the major stock market indexes are synonymous. When gold rallies higher the major stock market indexes seem to rally higher as well.

Just look at yesterday's market action, gold traded higher by more than $25.00 per ounce and the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished higher…

Gold Can Tell The Future

What would you give to know the future? Well it appears more and more that gold may be telling Wall Street just that. It has happened many times over the last few months and yesterday it happened again. The markets were looking ugly heading into Monday morning. Fears from Europe continued to pound Wall Street traders and the Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were setting up for a 200 point decline.
