Wednesday certainly seems the day for a move recently. Our indicators are bullish in Gold, Silver, Copper and10Year. Bearish in cattle. Follow these markets in the direction indicated. With President Trump’s strong statement to North Korea, the fundamentals apply to precious metals, Treasuries and stocks. Even as OPEC discusses cutting output, the unusual action is in the crude which is barely higher on the day.

Any escalation and the moves in all markets above could easily continue. Trade with protection as there could be volatility regardless of what happens. Unfortunately the option risk parameters are not meeting the markets timing again this week, so the Power Ranking option trades cannot participate. However, if you would like to participate, please call for alternative strategies.
