Difficult to quantify the following, but interesting nonetheless. Sentiment clouds that identify where the crowd [unquantified] are looking. Thus, providing areas for further research.


First off, a general, macro-economic cloud. We can see the themes that still predominate…gold, banks, financials, dollar.

Then go to stockcharts, and view their ticker cloud, GLD for gold is their largest interest, and has been certainly through last week.


Again, gold has appreciated by 2.1% over the past week, but more intresting is that over the last 52 weeks, it’s appreciated by 10.3%, which apart from the US dollar, is the only bull market in the chart.

Gold is in a bull market. Where it will end is the question.
