LOOKING AHEAD TO TUESDAY BY REFLECTING BACK ON MONDAY'S ACTION
Bullish on the Metals and Treasury Sectors
METALS: 08/25/09 Higher closes Monday for copper and silver but lower for gold and platinum. All of the metals continue to be in uptrends overall in choppy daily action. Copper made its highest close of this move so far. Gold sold off while silver closed higher in what looks like spreading action between the two. Platinum settled lower but still should continue to work higher overall along with the rest of the metals.

FINANCIALS: 08/25/09 Higher closes yesterday for the eurodollar, bonds and notes. The eurodollar continues to be in a uptrend making another new contract high and close in the September contract and a new contract high close in the December. The bonds and notes both rallied to close near their session's highs this time. Both have held up well in spite of the indices moving higher which tells me interests will not be rising for some time. I hold Buy Signals for both Bonds and Notes.
