    Hard-hit silver miners making the switch to gold

    The Jakarta Globe
    Pure-play silver miners – a niche investment market popular with retail investors – are moving up the endangered list. Buffeted by a 68% plunge in the price of silver since 2011, miners who traditionally made most of their money from silver are diversifying into gold, buying mines and looking for more. The trend is reducing investment avenues for those wanting to take a bet on a commodity that often outperforms gold when bullion is rising. Large primary silver miners have increased their gold output by 19.4% a year since 2009 to 2 million ounces. That makes them faster-growing gold producers than gold miners themselves.

    AUDNZD stops going through here as 1.0315 triple top breaks post Stevens speech.

    *STEVENS: NO COMMENT TO OFFER ON RATES POLICY AHEAD OF MEETING

    The street interpreting this as a lower chance of a rate cut next week. I guess it shows there are still plenty of wavering AUD shorts out there still.

    On that note Eurusd sold down to 1.0870 as Euraud is sold in sympathy with AUDNZD.

    We are approaching a key resistance area on the AUDUSD itself. 7887 the 100 dma, 7928 top o' the daily cloud, 7938 previous daily high.

    Combined with market reports of a China QE (buying local govt bonds), a daily close above these three levels ahead of the FOMC sets the stage for more tears for AUD bears topside.

    Hi there,

    Watching currency strength readings on the GBPUSD these past few days, here is a good and clear read of why the GBPUSD is still climbing. It looks as if there is still some GBP strength into the elections, and continuing USD weakness these last few days.

    The following two screen-shots show strength during the course of two hours since the start of the US today (27th) and of the hourly chart over the past week or so.

    GBPUSD H4.
    Some of the smart money as on April 27, 2015. All chaotic structure is essentially polyphonic. It evolves not in a single line of thought, but in several superimposed strands at once. Hence, creativity requires a diffuse, scattered kind of attention that contradicts our normal logical habits of thinking. Creativity is required on several levels of decision making. Creativity is required for strategists and analysts alike. Strategists are responsible for spotting trading opportunities, Analysts are responsible for making a synthetic picture of different strategies possible and visible on the market. They are differently involved in risk taking. A trader risks money, an analyst risks his name (only?).
    The chart attached has been washed out of all sort of unwanted and obsolete artefacts. Believe me that
    was a lot of them finally damped as garbage. So right now I am presenting a synthesis of crucial developments from February till today, almost making three months.

    I am sure that the formula linking F and F(alpha) constants is entirely a new finding.

    GBPJPY H4 chart....Something about the Dollar made me close all the trades running an hour ago and now looking at JPY pairs for setups. The green-buck looks like its being pushed down a spring board and could sharply push back before falling again...till then, watching AUDJPY and GBPJPY pullback for longs
