Skaaptjop, do you think our gold industry is safe with the current government? With the news I've heard about future nuclear power stations being built in SA and the Russians operating it. For all you know the Chinese might be given control over our gold mines and leave us with nothing.

There is still the Greek parliamentary vote to go , with the" no "referendum , could be a sharp but short sell off before the parliamentary decision closer to the 48 000 level.

Crunch time. Can topi break through 47500 or is that the right shoulder? Across the seas can the Shanghai stay above 4000 or is that a huge right shoulder? Will the $483bn Chinese bailout do the trick?

Was never interested in gold. But this special year of 2015 it's starting to glitter for me.

So, ALSI came off just before 47711, possibly back into the 45000 levels to complete the reverse head and shoulders pattern( Elliot multiple corrective patterns). Lots opportunity coming up.....still overweight in Cash.
