Hello Everybody

To learn more about my Fat Pitch ETF Advisory, please click here.

Trade Actions:

Buy one more GLD @ 92 or Better
Buy RJI (ET Note for Commodities) @ 5.75 or better

Market Outlook/Potential Opportunities:

The strategy was right. The timing of it was off. Again we left profits on the table but we still came out ahead as of Fridays close. Now what ? I feel that we are now in no-wheres-vill. We certainly cannot sell the sock market. We have to look to buy but only on good corrections. I feel that it is going to give us a much better entry on some long positions. If I find opportunities during the week, I will shoot out an update during the week. If nothing changes we will keep the weekly format.

GOLD !!! We are Bullish. The 884 level was a major catch point on the weekly and monthly chart. We should go much higher now but to be on the safe side we can now put a stop in. If you wanted to add to the position then a price of 92 would be a good buy.

Inflation is the name of the game for now. Therefore we are going to try to buy an Exchange traded note for Commodities.

It looks like I finally updated my performance and will also start posting and maintaining that.
