Stocks And Precious Metals Charts - China Returns From Holiday Next Week - Stock Option Expiration On Friday

Stocks were weak again overnight and in the morning, but managed to drift higher and turn green in the afternoon after the rest of the world had gone home for the weekend.

There will be a stock option expiration next week. The calendar for this year is included below.

Gold and silver managed to move higher along with the Dollar, which is again rather interesting. 

This seemingly contrarian strength in gold and silver was especially remarkable because this was a holiday week in China, a period which is historically weak for the precious metals.

China will be back for business next week. Let's see if their renewed presence in the markets can break this stalemate in the metals, which have been hovering just under key overhead resistance. Or not.

Have a pleasant weekend.
