As gold and silver move into the consolidation phase, we continue to see attempts to buy and sell. The rotation of new money will drive investors and traders crazy. This phase of all markets is also known as the torture chamber of investing.

After Friday’s rally in the metals, Monday brought some heavy selling and this morning we see higher prices. The confusion that traders feel is the one of uncertainty.

The simple fact is the healthiest and most bullish action is to see what we are seeing now. Gold held the 1280 support and is now churning which should eventually lead to a breakout to the upside. Only time and the pattern will tell.
