SPX got within 10 points of the recent highs today before pulling back and I suspect before long we will be above those levels- name of the game buy the pullbacks - as long as it keeps working - and they are short and quick.

Note the reuters article on the gold/silver coins posted yesterday was a bit outdated - here is the release from yesterday from the US MINT- about the same except they will be selling the buffalo gold coins.
Still looking to hit the recent highs on the SPX near 1080 - and note the RSI 2 levels near 95 on the SPX and a bit higher on the DJIA.
Equity futures way up this morning as follows:
Overseas markets way up driving the price action while the dollar is down about .6%- gold a new all time high and now trading near 1057.

Very choppy day so far and one full eye focused on the dollar which is definitely on an uptrend on the 30 min chart. Not sure how long it lasts but if it turns down equities probably rip higher.
OFF THE BEST LEVELS
Markets closed off the best levels of the day but with a nice gain never the less- and I did sell some DGP near the end of the day.

RSI 2 levels as follows:
SPX - 82

So markets over bought again and I suspect we rally back to today's highs tomorrow and witness a similar sell off- That is the current plan of attack.
Markets continue to move higher - as the dollar continues to get hammered - SPZ +16, NAZ +34.5 and the DJIA +133.

Dollar whacked at 76.35 and a bounce is no doubt right around the corner.
Looking to take some stuff off the table this afternoon as the RSI 2 levels head to near 90 while the dollar moves to under 10- I suspect that reverses rather soon and brings the equity market lower- also selling more DGP into the rip.
PRE MARKET RIPS

Looking to add to my SSO position on dips as all signals are pointing north and a close near the highs- also looking at adding to DGP as this thing feels like it wants to go to new highs.
Equity markets are set to open higher with the futures trading as follows:
The usual on the fx market with the dollar down a bit the EURO up a bit v the dollar while gold is higher at 1006 and crude is down less than a buck at $69.2.
