This morning, around 4:00, gold hit the top end of the range near $1,860 April futures and quickly reversed, dropping almost $30.00 in 30minutes. This action was classic for a market that is in a downtrend. Until the trend reverses, we are sellers of resistance.
Silver's action was similar to gold but not quite as dramatic. The trend in Silver remains down and should be traded the same way. Platinum has held major support continuing its uptrend and overwhelming strength over Gold and Silver for now.
