“By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”

    -- John Maynard Keynes



It looks like the Dollar Rally is getting near a top, the gold sell off (XAU, Gold Stocks) is nearing a bottom, and the Nikkei is heading lower.  In fact most equities indexes has reached overbought levels and should come down over the next week.

Among new trade sgnals, ERTS, Electronic Arts, another shortsell signal.  And MKL, Merkle, is giving a buy signal.
