The election is now behind us and I pray our elected officials can come together and make quality decisions to move this country forward in a positive direction.

Kimble goes on to say, in part:
Over the past 10-years the U.S. Dollar has lost over a third of its value, inside of a falling channel. Earlier this year the Dollar broke above the 10-year falling channel [see chart below] and then fell in price as investors became too bullish on the Dollar (80% Bulls).

Traders have created a rather large “fish mouth spread pattern”again in the US dollar Index. In the past this fish mouth spread was spot on in suggesting that a Dollar rally was close at hand…Will the results be any different this time?
Gold could become very bullish once it breaks through the upper horizontal resistance line at $1,800/ozt. Likewise for silver once it breaks through $36. Once these prices are surpassed the HUI should also take off. Check out my technical analysis below for details.
