Popcorn Ready … Asylum Freaks Out
You would think everybody’s escaped.
Those who’ve been monitoring this site already know, today has been in the planning stages for months.
This post was the first one to discuss the target area for a reversal in gold (GLD).
So, here we are.
So-called inflation is running rampant and it looks as if everybody’s in agreement.
Turns out there’s a guy in the Pacific Northwest, a ‘boots on the ground’ type that sells lumber for a living.
Uneducated Economist never waivered on the fact, prices are rising as a result of supply constraints and not inflation.

Steven Van Metre has given his take on current monetary policies; they’re deflationary.
It’s a minority view.

It looks like we have a test of the original Up-Thrust (reversal).

Everyone has their own investment/trading time-frame and method.
There’s no doubt, gold (GLD) is at the danger point. Price action can go either way.

As of this morning, we’re already positioned short this sector via DUST (not advice, not a recommendation).
A push below today’s DUST low of 17.27, does not necessarily negate the trade but it does (or will) bring it under scrutiny for potential exit (not advice, not a recommendation).
