Monday brainstorming

1. Sentiment is again very bullish except for the ISE averages on the put call ratio which are at neutral territory around 120. We enter the earnings season reporting with plenty of after hour swings which will make a volatile market. In the short term we can expect a brief pullback to the 1300 SPX level before the attack above 1350 is very likely and we should top out finally around 1375-80 levels within 4-5 weeks. The spotlight though is on metals who climb to record levels on a daily basis and Silver should retest the Hunt high around 50 within 5- 6 months does the monthly chart tell me.
