From Tomi Kilgore: The S&P 500 SPX, -0.58% has slipped below the 200-day moving average (DMA) in morning trade Thursday for the first time in three weeks, which could put a bearish spin on the stock market's outlook for some chart watchers. The 200-DMA, which currently extends to 2,750.81 according to FactSet, is viewed by many technicians as a line separating longer-term uptrends from downtrends. The last time the S&P 500 traded below the 200-DMA on an intraday basis was Feb. 14, while the last close below it was Feb. 11. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.56% was currently below its 200-DMA, which extended to 7,479.96, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.81% was still above its 200-DMA, which was currently at 25,125.54.

Strong USD Continues To Limit Precious Metals Price Action

Gold Price
From Colin First:

Precious metals finally edged up from multi-week lows as global equity market is currently seeing bearish price action amid mixed signals from macro data and headlines. However, given the strength of the US dollar in the broad market, precious metals were unable to establish a solid recovery rally. Precious metal bulls are for now making the best of the current market situation but there is little chance for either gold or silver to breach past critical resistance levels. In the current market scenario, gold is still regarded as the most preferred #1 safe haven assets despite dollar gaining strength and political woes stemming from the USA has dampened US Greenback's long term outlook.

Why Silver is the precious metal to buy right now (rather than gold)

long and stacked silver bars
From William L. Silber: Fear drives up precious metal prices. Fear of war, defaults, inflation, civil unrest and anything that undermines trust in government. A week after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008, gold and silver jumped by 15%. Three years later, during the height of the European government debt crisis, when the obligations of Italy, Ireland, and Greece resembled junk bonds, silver more than quadrupled in value, while gold increased 250%.

Why natural gas prices could fall in the near-term

natural gas
From James Hyerczyk: Natural gas futures edged higher early in the session on Wednesday, but prices retreated as the buying slowed and sellers increased their presence. The price action suggests the futures market is being well-supported by aggressive speculative buying, but that weakness in the spot market may be exerting some selling pressure.

Large Inflow Detected in Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)

ETF investing
From ETF Channel: Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
