    Theta Hypothesis Testing at present !

    LME back logs have long been a contentious issue to Aluminium producers. Whilst the world majors such as Alcoa, Rusal and RIO et al have been reducing their manufacturing capacity to reduce supply and maintain base prices the World Bureau for Metal Statistics show China has increased production facilities...old high cost inefficient plants have been closed due to the populace complaints of environment issues but new coal fired (indigenous cheap fuel) aluminium smelters have started and are increasing production !! Supply is increasing faster than demand so caution if you think we have reached a nadir in this market we may yet see a big drop !

    1873.75 and 1865 are the key supports today in the S&P 500 Futures (June '14). We have now posted 7 green candles in a row. You may have seen me talk about the "Rule of Nine" before, a rule that says you don't get more than nine green candles in a row, and a rule that's generally very reliable!

    Obviously the key support is 1892.50, the recent high, with 1932 the target above here, being channel resistance.

    Silver just broke below the 19.22 support that's been propping things up for a week or so. Let's see if this level now does a job as resistance on the retest. The next supports of note at 18.72 then 18.17, the latter being the big one as this was the low/bounce last June, and the lowest print since 2010..
