There is no question that the extremely strong correlation between the bond market and stock market that had existed during most of November has broken down over the past two weeks.

Therefore, if it breaks below that level in a meaningful way at any point in the coming weeks, it will force us to rethink our bullish longer-term stance on this commodity.
