LOOKING AHEAD TO FRIDAY BY REFLECTING BACK ON THURSDAY'S ACTION

Gold and Silver are displaying small Bull Pennants; Bonds & Notes look technically Strong

METALS: 09/11/09  Higher close yesterday for silver while slightly lower for platinum, copper and gold. All of the metals continue to be in uptrends with gold and silver in small BULL FLAGS. Copper and platinum also continue to be strong with nothing affecting these metals after closing down.

FINANCIALS: 09/11/09 Higher settlement Thursday for the bonds and notes while lower for the eurodollar. The eurodollar settled slightly lower in a very bullish market while the bonds and notes had strong closes higher keeping my buy signals in tact and looking like, especially the notes, that they will take out their last highs.
