Over the past 30 days, gold has not made a 30-day high OR a 30-day low. It's just kind of sat there, forming a consolidation 'triangle pattern' after setting new highs in August. Prior triangles typically resolved to the upside, but the next couple of weeks proved key. This is a big tell for miners, which are also consolidating after one of the most overbought readings in decades.; Investors' receptions to IPOs have not diminished lately; they've picked up if anything. The immediate success of the Snowflake offering caused the number of IPO "run-ups" to reach a dozen, the most in 20 years. Other metrics show only 1999-2000 as a comparison, as unlikely as it would be to see a repeat of the aftermath.

After a spike in July, precious metals have calmed down and mostly swung sideways. Some bullish traders see this as a consolidation pattern before gold and silver surge to new highs. Perhaps. Or perhaps not. Chart patterns can always be interpreted in 2 ways. (The beauty of charts is that you see what you want to see.)Regardless, the surge and subsequent flatlining in gold and silver caused their respective Bollinger Bands to widen, and then narrow. Bollinger Bands Width, which looks at the ...

A few days ago I looked at the potential for value to outperform growth. As Bloomberg noted, this month so far has seen the equal-weighted S&P 500 outperform the market cap-weighted S&P 500 by the most in over a decade.
