After observing the metals markets for years, I've noticed that weekly gains are often made early in the week and selling usually occurs later in the week. The pattern repeats so frequently that I began to wonder if it was not coincidence. Then, the proverbial light bulb was lit and I finally connected the dots. The Evil Empire is trying to hide their malicious intent from the weekly Commitment of Traders report! As you likely know by now, the CoT comes out every Friday but it is basis the previous Tuesday. So, any new short positions initiated by the EE yesterday and today will not show up on the CoT until next Friday. That also means that the EE has until next Tuesday to cover any brand new shorts they just initiated if their raids fail. So...down go metals mid-late week on fresh paper-metal selling; up go metals early the following week if shenanigans fail and shorts are covered before new CoT survey. Below is a 12-hour gold chart that dates back to October. I admit that it proves nothing however, it should certainly give you something to consider.
OK, that's it for now. I'll probably add more this evening after I get a chance to see what Harvey thinks.
