Strong Performers Hitting Resistance

GLD is trading near the 50 dMA and the lower trendline.  I see no fundamental, technical or sentiment reason to sell at this point.  I continue ot hold the metal but have recently sold half my position in the mining index.

MS moves fast and has been a good trading vehicle, although not as volatile as WFC.  Today I added some near the day's low and expect this to make a run for 30

FCX continues its upward trajectory off a solid base with the next 
resistance level at 45.7.  Materials in general are working off the best developed basing pattern.

IYM has a beautiful base and may be developing an inverted head and shoulders now as it approaches some resistance.  This may take a couple weeks to break out, but with the violent moves, who knows?

SMH is likewise struggling with some overhead supply after a 20% run.  This is due for a pull-back.  I recently took some profits in CY, but will re-enter on any correction.  MRVL also could be a buy with any pull-back.
