This is what you need to know today.

Inauguration Day

Opinions among institutions on what is next for the markets are split down the middle.  This is causing simultaneously jubilation and anxiety in the markets.

The insight here is that The Arora Report portfolios are positioned correctly under these market conditions.  Only day before yesterday we raised hedges and cash.

Gold has survived more bear attacks indicating continuing underlying demand.

Oil Higher

HOUSING STARTS RISE AND JOBLESS CLAIMS FALL AS SIGNS OF GOOD ECONOMY, GOLD SURVIVES BEAR ATTACKS

This is what you need to know today.

Good Economic Data

Housing Starts came at 1226K vs. 1190K consensus.  We pay more attention to building permits as they are a leading indicator.  Building Permits came at 1210K vs. 1210K consensus.

Gold Survives Bear Attacks

Since yesterday Morning Capsule, gold has survived several bear attacks.  In the very, very short-term, gold is overbought.  There has been a lot of good news; each time good news hits the wires bears see an opportunity to short considering gold is vulnerable due to overbought condition.

The mere fact that so far gold has survived these attacks shows that buyers are waiting in line to buy on pullbacks.  Of course, if such buyers become exhausted and bears continue to attack, gold has a $100 down side.

ECB
