This article at The Motley Fool site goes into four reasons the author thinks a short term pullback could be in the works.

If markets do pull back in the short term, I see these two as key:

1. Shiller S&P 500 P/E Ratio (all time high.)

2. Stock Buybacks (on the decline.)

I don't know...market crashes don't usually begin with the media predicting a market crash...

This market could melt up for a while....

pretty strong day for AMV,V today. that went up another 30% today.. its over a 10 bagger since i pumped this thing 2 months ago when it was selling for .22, now $2.63.

another good pump was MP which also had a stellar day today up $5.49 or 15%. i pumped that one 6 months ago at $11.50 now $40.75.


my main pump now is MUX. that baby inched up with volume today while gold got hammered. under full disclosure, i have been Mr. Wrong on this one for the past 10 years and i am a very stubborn bastard. i read a book somewhere that told you to redact the name of the equity and do your analysis fundamental or technical without looking at the name. no doubt i didn't listen to my own advice. but that being said right here and right now, if i was looking at this thing for the first time without knowing the name, i would be buying with both hands.

the 13 f filings are coming in now and Fidelity and Wellington are relentless sellers of Barrick Gold. this stock is never going up until these guys are done selling.

Fidelity is also lightening up on their AMZN holdings. i am going to look through the rest of the high flyers as the reports come in.

gold and gold miners have been getting slammed as of late. dating back to 2008 when the same thing happened, it turned out to be a pre-curser to a major top in the S+P.

currently gold and many other commodities including copper, silver and various soft commodities like wheat, corn, soybeans etc. all look great.

if anyone was looking at getting involved in junior minors, i would take a look at Liberty Gold at around $1.40 canadian (support level). Rio2 .70 canadian (support level).

today bitcoin traded with a $10,000 range in one day.. this thing is no investment, a matter of fact to me its completely un tradeable, so as far as i am concerned its completely useless.

Gold looks to me like it's trying to make a bottom. It has been below its 250 day EMA for a few days, and closed above it yesterday. I need to see it close above its 20 MA to get interested. But it's made several of these head fakes in the recent past. Usually, the 250 day has been fairly reliable where it bounces. if the tech sector drags the whole market down, then it may be on.

the way to the money these days is to be selling premiums on options or etf structures. there is tremendous whipsaw action... if you are not in the trade over night, you are not participating in the action.

personally, i have no idea how to handicap premium moves, so i stay away. i know that most of the action is predicated on open interest and expiration. for someone that can figure out where the best place for those options to expire worthless with the buyers losing the biggest amounts, they can score big.

I may have been a bit premature about trying to make a bottom. Gold dropped below its 250 day average for the last four days. It sits closer to a 375 day average, not that it has any meaning. The 8 day EMA has crossed below the 250 day, and the 20 day MA is about to do the same. Wrong direction for a bullish case on gold.

Silver, still looks neutral to mildly bullish in comparison but needs to overtake the high close on Feb1 of $29.42 to make its case. That high on Feb 1, overtook the previous closing high back on Aug 10, 2020, by a small amount. Surprisingly, that was approx. the same date for a high water mark for Gold back in August.

If the dollar continues to strengthen, then the metals both look to continue down (gold) or tread water (silver). All reports on the news is the economy is strengthening, which bodes well for the dollar IMO.
