Morpheus Trading: Since breaking through an important support level at $150, SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEARCA:GLD) has been in distribution mode. Over the past five months, $GLD has formed a bearish base just below the declining 10-month MA, which is like the 200-day moving average on the daily chart.

Going into today, we are placing $DZZ on our watchlist for potential swing trade entry. Subscribing members of our swing trade newsletter should note our exact entry, stop, and target prices for this setup in today’s full report.
