Are You Buying This Pullback In Stocks?

After hitting the magical 17,000 level just around the time America was celebrating our country's 238th birthday, stocks and indexes have seen a pullback on quiet volume. The question is, are you seeing this as a buying opportunity?

As always, we welcome your feedback on this video or any markets that you are following.

Have a great trading day everyone,

Please enjoy the article, visit Gary's blog, and let the COMMENTS FLY!


In July of 2008 it was my pleasure to provide the INO Traders' Blog this look at ratio charts and the edge they can provide as they often tell a not readily apparent story regarding inter-market relationships.

Today, as we look at the market revival I have been calling Hope '09 and some ratios I consider of paramount importance, gold ratio charts are heavily in play.

The first chart I want to look at is the price of gold divided by units of the S&P 500.
