Probably our worst month for trading gold and silver, and
much of it can be attributed to having an expectation of a
breakout bias. What a bias does is color one’s objectivity

aspects of market activity that supports the bias and missing
In the first part of the month, we were unfortunate enough
to have selected a few false breakouts, and the combination
of false breakouts and a bias accounts for the results.
