The good news today is that the negative pulsing of the spot gold price is not (so far) doing its usual Monday morning thing when the LSE opens.
The other good news is that some positive sentiment has been murmuring about expectations for gold miners results.
The bad news is that spot gold has been driven into a deep retrace of Intermediate wave (1) and is close to being driven off a cliff if hedging increases and buyers remain so skittish.
The bi-partisan uncertainty of things is also reflected in the gold mining index chart and could easily carry on for years this way. Deception rules.
