    A QUICK SUMMARY !!


    Stocks finish strong week on negative note following Greece downgrade !!!!


    Stocks failed to sustain early gains following the strong jobs report and finished with losses on the day while still tallying nice gains for the week.

    Investor attention turned midday to lingering concerns about Greece after S&P downgraded the country's long-term sovereign-debt rating, and a euro zone official said Greece faces a Feb. 16 deadline to apply for an extension of its bailout program.

    The strong jobs report also has raised expectations for eventual Fed rate hikes, and higher rates could peel some investors away from stocks.

    Treasury bonds tumbled, with the 10-year yield surging 12 bps to 1.94% in the biggest one-day increase since Nov. 2013, and the yield on the two-year note added the most since 2009.

    Investor participation was above average, with 900M-plus shares changing hands at the NYSE floor.

    Nymex crude jumped 2.4% to $51.69/bbl, capping its biggest weekly gain in four years (+7.2%).


    ARE WE GOING TO SEE HIGHER RATES SOON ???

    I have been very surprised that with a strong dollar and a market rising gold hasn't tumbled as most claimed it would.

    Still feel that physical is the best way to invest in the PM'S.. Found this interesting ...

    "try to get your heads around the astounding fact that in the first three weeks of January alone, withdrawals of physical gold from the Shanghai gold exchange were a staggering 201 tonnes, worth more than $8 billion. In 2013, global gold production was roughly 3,000 tonnes; so based on the weekly withdrawal rate of 58 tonnes, Chinese demand in the first three weeks of January was more than the entirety of global production. And better yet, since the Beijing free trade zone launched in September, additional gold has been imported that doesn't make it into official statistics - which, consequently, now chronically understate demand."

    Seems someone likes it !!

    My 2 cents...NUGT would be the better play if you want to reach the top 5..

    Gold was hammered this week so a little bounce can make a bigger difference in NUGT..

    Your the coach , i am calling the passing play here :)
