The past few weeks have been rough for precious metals. Gold had climbed all the way to $1297/oz but the other parts of the sector (Silver and the gold stocks) failed to confirm the move. They have since fallen off a cliff. Over the past 14 days, GDX has lost 15% while GDXJ has declined 20%. Silver during that span has declined every day. Yes, Silver has declined 14 consecutive days. Gold still has some "catching down" to do (with the rest of the sector) but the gold stocks and Silver are oversold and nearing a bounce.

We plot the daily bar charts of our in-house junior gold index and GDXJ below along with GDX. The junior sector has been hit especially hard partly due to news that GDXJ, because of massive inflows will be cutting its stake in various juniors and investing in larger companies. Regardless of the why, the charts are the charts and much damage has been done. However, both junior indices have a bit more downside potential before testing strong support. GDX has good support roughly 4% below Thursday's close.

Silver, as we noted, is down 14 consecutive trading days and nearly 13% over that period. This week Silver has lost 5.6% and sliced below key long-term averages. While the broader trend is lower, Silver is very close to testing strong short-term support from $15.90 to $16.13. That is another 1%-2% lower for Silver, which could then face resistance from $16.90 to $17.20.

Germany-FranceQuestion: Martin You said the turning point will be on monday 8th may. Could it be in connection with the result of the french election on may 7th? If it isMacron, the turning point will be up. If it is Le Pen, it will be down. Or?

ANSWER: The French media is portraying Macron as a centrist. It is expected that Macron should be able to attract a wider spectrum of second-round voters than Le Pen, pulling in left-leaning voters from Hamon and Mélenchon as well as those leaning to the right that voted Fillon in the first round. The polls put him at 65%.

Our computer projected that the “populist” vote would win.  Indeed, for the first time in modern French history, the runoff vote will not feature a single presidential candidate from a mainstream party. The Conservative and Socialists all lost.

The elite want Macron to win but this will be the nail in the coffin for the EU.

Optimized-grapheneWhile there’s been plenty of focus on apps and cloud computing in the technology space, advances are also being made in hardware-focused sectors such as nanotechnology. Uses include everything from more efficient drug delivery systems to tiny transistors that allow for smaller and more powerful computer chips.

To be sure, the markets for nanotechnology products and nanotechnology uses are set to grow in the coming years. A report released this past December from Research and Markets states that nanotechnology “is a rapidly growing technology” and the global industry has been forecast to grow annually by 17 percent up to 2024.

Similarly, BCC Research has said that the global nanotechnology market was valued at $39.2 billion in 2016 and should grow at a CAGR of 18.2 percent, in order that the market will reach a believed $90.5 billion by 2021.

Still, for investors just starting to look at nanotechnology stocks, it can be difficult to know where to to begin, as nanotechnology uses are so varied. As a starting point, here’s an overview of six of the top areas in which nanotechnology uses are making a big difference today.

Market Summary

The stock market is on track to rise by more than 5% during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, outperforming Ronald Reagan's 1% loss and Barack Obama's 2.8% gain, as reported by CNBC. The benchmark Standard & Poor's 500 Index (S&P 500) has climbed roughly 5.2% from January 20 through April 25, according to Google Finance. "Trump is the second-best Republican and third-best President since World War Two," said Sam Stovall, describing the S&P 500's performance under our latest president during an interview with Investopedia. "He can boast that his 100-day performance exceeded that of Ronald Reagan, his role model," added Stovall.

Last week, the benchmark S&P 500 index advanced 1.5% and ended April .9% higher. The blue-chip DOW Jones Industrial Average gained 1.9% last week and 1.3% over the month. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index logged a 2.3% weekly and monthly gain. The smaller cap Russell 2000 and MidCap 400 indexes are up for the week 1.49% and .88% respectively. Note that the Nasdaq has taken over as the leading asset class which seem to confirm the overall markets current bullish move.

Kitty Hawk is the “flying car” company that’s financially backed by Google founder Larry Page, and today it has published the first video of its prototype aircraft. The company describes the Kitty Hawk Flyer as an “all-electric aircraft” that is designed to operate over water and doesn’t require a pilot’s license to fly. Kitty Hawk promises people will be able to learn to fly the Flyer “in minutes.” A consumer version will be available by the end of this year, the company says.
