Live: Thursday, March 29, 2018

Today culminates a short week with a short day. U.S. markets will be closed on Friday for a Christian holiday, and they will end the regular trading session today at 2 p.m. New York time, two hours early.

I have exited GLD for a profit, although below my 50% target. The chart has grown less bearish and I took the opportunity to take my gains off the table. I shall update the analysis with results later this morning.

I have no other exits in sight, and plan no new positions today. So this post will wrap up my trading for the week.

Look for The Week Ahead sometime Saturday.
