I use thinkorswim, now through TDAmeritrade but I got to keep my thinkorswim pricing plan
I have a Scottrade account that has a couple bucks in it but I don't use them anymore. I find their charting tools, analysis tools, and just about everything else to be absolutely crap in relation to what I have available through TDAmeritrade with thinkorswim, and they cost more (yes, I am including the Scottrade Elite platform that I had before I moved most of my money out of there).

Oh, gold is also now dropping with the markets instead of going in the opposite direction of the markets. At least short term, the inverse relationship between the indices and GLD seems to have reversed.

Operation Twist raised the value of the dollar (whether it's ST or LT, we'll see) which moved gold lower. Could be a good buying opportunity depending on ones outlook, and depending on how low it goes.

I would bet short term, furthermore, as we know, all government's plans result in the OPPOSITE reaction, so I would put a year end price of gold of $2100 no sweat.

Great buying opportunity today in case anyone is thinking of scooping up some metal.

Dollar futures (/dx) are up 1.9% since Tuesday's close, GLD is down 9.1%. Gold is not acting in proportion to the dollar or inversely to the markets right now.

The Jan 2012 $140 GLD puts I mentioned buying as a hedge at $1 late last month are now trading at just shy of $4 each btw... not quite a 400% return since I suggested them just over 1 month ago now.

I anticipate it may rise some in the short term but will likely be back to 1400 or lower in the mid-term. My analysis is based on support/resistance levels of GLD coupled with the GLD/SPY ratio historically.

GLD/SPY is now 1.18. SPY gains since I posted that in August is why gold is only down to about 1500 instead of 1400 (and no, I don't feel bad for not giving updated price targets every time SPY moved ). The technical analysis worked out though. For whoever it was that was saying my analysis was wrong because GLD wouldn't fall under it's 200 dma, it's been under it for over two weeks...

Gold is trading around 1550 today.
You would be sweating if anyone thought it was going to be at 2100.

Although, it could change real quick if something happens in the Persian Gulf with Iran.

I disagree. The dollar didn't change. The fundamentals haven't changed. The only reason the dollar is gaining strength is due to European problems. The dollar is essentially being propped up. I agree, in the short run, you might see the numbers dip even more, but in the long run, the fundamentals are still at play, and the dollar will continue to decline in value.

It did hit $1900 at one point so I wasn't far off, but the European crisis is helping the dollar. I would still give it a $2100 price, but later in 2012. Time will tell, but I'm not in the least bit sweating. As a matter of fact, I'm just going to buy more.

F2B drowned in a tank of kool-aid today. Zerohedge stirred it so hard it created a vortex.

With Iran looming, I think the drop is temporary. It will still climb throughout the year.
