I think gold amidst a needed pullback and should get a panic boost as vix is calling for another 5-10% ? longer term bearish yes..
the vix is really really ripe, weekly bollies are frikkin tight, bulls tread super carefully next few weeks..lower bolly 8.45 on weekly today. so another lil push up or two on the indices, and then ....

STEP 1 = BULL (unless there’s a crash before the close today)

Reference:
Hirsch, Almanac TRIFECTA has three markers for bull/bear:
1) Santa Rally, which is the seven-trading day period beginning on the open on December 22 and ending at the close on January 3. This means that by the 1/3/18 close, the SPX must be higher than 2684.22 (which was the open on 12/22/17) in order to call it BULL. “A positive Santa Claus Rally is the first step toward a positive January Indicator Trifecta which historically has preceded well above average performance in past midterm years.”
2) As the S&P goes the first five days in January so goes the year, which means that Monday’s close (1/8/18, the fifth trading day of the year) must be higher than the open on 1/2/18 (the first trading day of the year which opened at 2683.73 SPX), in order to call it BULL
3) As the S&P goes in January so goes the year… close of the last day of the month must be higher than the open 2683.73 on 1/2/18
“trades with cats” notes: “My hardcopy almanac makes it clear (page 12).. January barometer has .746 correct. 10 of the last 17 midterm election years followed January Barometer. *8 of those 17 followed the first 5 days of January rule.”
