Monday Morning Chartology
The S&P remains in its short and intermediate term uptrends. It is nearing its 50 day moving average (red line).
GLD is moving higher slowly, but remains within a very short term, a short term and an intermediate term downtrend. I continue to avoid.
The long Treasury continues to drift higher, but remains within a short term trading range and an intermediate term downtrend.
The VIX was up but is still meandering within a short term trading range. It is also in an intermediate term downtrend.
