Dow and Gold both trading in extremely overbought ranges

|Includes: DWDP, SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD), GOLD
 
 
The first wave of selling has completed and the markets are racing upwards on very light volume; this is a very bearish development. Worse yet this Monday was one of the largest one day point gains for the Dow in years and yet the volume was at best mediocre. A very clear signal that the smart money is selling into strength and not buying the crap that the economy has entered into a new paradigm. The problems of Europe have not vanished and we have a bank and real estate bubble brewing in China. Thus the potential to get hit from all sides is rather strong.
 
Rising volume, lower prices and rising prices and lower volume are both very negative developments. At this point of the game it appears that we are still not out of the woods.
 
Gold
Has also moved up strongly but its extended its gains when it is already trading in the very overextended ranges. The current pattern could produce more price gains but it is also a very dangerous pattern for when it reverses it could lead to very strong pull back. Caution is warranted in the short term.
