OK, so I guess GDX really should drop down and retest its SMA(50), so that's what it seems to be thinking of doing right now.

Meanwhile the SPY is silly expensive, but then again Trump's going to save 'Merica, right?

So here's the important news:

Vice - new Lana Del Rey single will save us all. Quote:

She has acted as a symbol of our secret desires, our excesses and our failings, simply by exploring her own character.

But with Love, Lana has given up on narcissism and stretched out her hands to us more directly than she has ever dared to before. She has abandoned the self-examining character she has maintained for five years, and stepped out of the hazy fantasy world of her own construction. In Love, Lana discards her favourite subject (herself), and instead talks about us, the audience, and the real world.

Love speaks with uncharacteristic directness: "Look you kids, you know you're the coolest. The world is yours and you can't refuse it."

Lana is looking directly into our eyes and addressing us. Throughout her work, Lana has maintained the Del Rey character fastidiously, never breaking out of her solemn, brooding persona for fear of ruining the magic of her image. In Love, she grins openly at the screen, exuding warmth and winking knowingly. She seems to be whispering: "Let's stop playing games for a minute. This one's for you."

It's a great video, I can't stop watching it.

"Don't worry, baby" Lana beams, and her soothing reverb floods us with warmth ­- ultimately, she wants this song to comfort us. Yes, to a degree, she wants to shake us out of apathy, and remind us that the apathy she exudes in her character is merely an act at the end of the day, but she also wants us to know we're doing a damn good job of coping with the world we're living through.

Lana's Love it seems is all about navigating the harsh, unforgiving landscape we find ourselves, and if it's a pointer in the direction she's heading in, maybe her new era will be all about lifting us up.

Thanks for coming to save the day, Lana!

May as well give you the video already:
