US equities remain moderately choppy, in what is still holiday trading mode. Price structure on the hourly chart is offering a bear flag, suggestive of weakness into the Yellen event. Meanwhile, metals are a little higher after overnight declines, Gold +$3, with Silver +0.5%.
re: Gold. Further downside to the GLD 114s still seems probable, not least as we saw 115s overnight.
Miners are already under pressure, GDX -1.3%

notable weakness, FCX -2%... struggling around the 200dma.
