Some volatility..

in the commodity and precious metals patch. At least the slow grind upwards is punctuated by some violent gyrations. This is partly summer trading already, with low volume and big programs that can do whatever they want on a given day. Bullish side really tryung to get things going. Its Friday the 13th and the behavior of the dollar will continue to dominate markets short-term.  There is really not much to do unless the SPY convincingly breaks 133 or 137. Within that trading range, you are just helping market makers get rich.
