    GBP sold off on profit-taking -- in other words, the defeat of the Scottish referendum was already baked into the index.. Some wagging tongue at the FED thinks U.S. interest rates could go up as soon as next spring, so everyone wants more worthless USD's. UUP going nuts -- check today's volume vs. their normal avg.

    Trust me, this is nothing more than ALGORITHMIC TRADING & funds still dumping commodity positions. Big capitulation sell-off coming (may be in-progress) as retail holders throw in their towels. More shorties getting suckered in -- the mother-of-all-short-covering in commodities is on the horizon, but I'm not a market timer.

    Be patient, just keep writing those covered-calls & make $$$$ while quietly waiting.

    UPDATE for BAGHOLDER naked shorties:

    Latest numbers out of Scotland: 58% "No", 42% "Yes". Now I thought this election was supposed to be to-close-to-call? You guys do realize what this means for the GBP right? Now I wonder, wonder where will currency traders get the money to buy more Pounds? Oh, that's right -- SELL THOSE SAFE-HAVEN U.S. DOLLARS. And if the dollar sells off -- even just a little bit -- PM's will pop up. And what will that do to our SUCKER shortie friends? Someone is going to be filling their bagpipes with something brown when they try to cover in the morning, aye laddy?


    Laddies and Lassies, we interrupt this warning to SLW shorty BAGHOLDERS to announce that the U.K Telegraph has called the referendum vote in favour of (blaring trumpets and drum roll, please) ----- "No".

  • I'm warning all my poor sweet BAGHOLDER shorties that the last of the institutional / ETF money is just now leaving the PM's; the declines of late are being driven more and more by scared RETAIL sellers along with computer-driven short-term (as in nano-second) algorithmic trading.

    A weak GDP will NOT support the USD at current levels; true, the U.S. economy is technically in a recovery mode -- but just barely. 2013 avg. GDP was 3.13%. Q! 2014 was NEGATIVE 2.1% but Q2 showed a decent 4%. Never-the-less, avg GDP over last four Q's comes out to only 2.5% -- that's (4.5 + 3.5 - 2.1 + 4.0) / 4 = 2.47%.

    Since Q1 2011, quarterly GDP breached 4% only twice with nine quarters coming in below 3% and six quarters below 2%. Sorry BAGGY PANTS shorties but that's NOT a recovery, King Dollar has no clothes even though currency traders are praising his new wardrobe anyway.

    Recent USD gains attributed largely to declines in the Pound and EURO; in other words, the "strong" USD isn't based on any organic economic strength, just market-driven technical strength as traders seek a TEMPORARY safe haven parking lot for their cash.

    Naked shorties better cover up soon, don't want to market to catch you with your BAGHOLDER pants down.
