Volatility up, dollar rally, commodities down. Time to make some money?

Today is interesting as the trend is continuing. I am doing my trades in EUR. Look at the SLV - Silver. Volumes and dip quite strong. Coupled with the Dollar rally against the Euro, this makes it even stronger for me. Time to buy on the dip? Time to sell gold as the dollar makes this attractive for accounts labeled in EUR? But both are coupled. Value of the dollar up, precious metals store less of it. So value of precious metal down. Well, if you believe that QE2 and the printing press mania really makes the dollar valuable. I dont. The in times like this, one can have a view on things like the VIX. VIX is the volatility index. VIX is up when the world goes down. These days, the VIX is up again after a month or two of down trend. But the upwards dynamic is quite strong. This is the times where one can really make a great deal or two provided he/she has the guts. My motto: buy on dips, sell on rallies. Looks like I can do both right now to good effect.
