"I personally sold all my gold and gold stocks yesterday," I told a crowd of 500 gold bugs at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium in Vancouver at the end of July. The crowd was shocked… But my timing was nearly perfect. Gold is down 12% since the beginning of August. And gold stocks – as measured by the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners Fund (GDXJ) – are down more than 30%. That's a serious fall in just four months. Since then, I've checked in with you about once a month to tell you if it's time to get back in… And now, at last, we're seeing signs of a change for the first time in four months. Today, I'll tell you the two things we need to see going forward… The reason I sold was simple: By some measures, investors were more optimistic on gold than they'd ever been. In short, there was nobody left to buy. And when there's nobody left to buy, the price can't go higher.

Finally on Friday, General Electric (GE) will provide an update on its turnaround efforts, while Honeywell (HON) will update investors on its breakup plans. Cramer said he’ll also be watching Procter & Gamble (PG) and Schlumberger (SLB) , two more long-time favorites.

Although many stocks haven’t rallied in response to positive earnings numbers yet, one exception was American Express Company (NYSE: AXP) last week. Shares had a nice response to earnings, jumping more than 7 percent. One reason could be AXP’s decision to raise guidance. General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) also got a boost Friday when the company left guidance unchanged instead of lowering it, as some analysts had feared. Honeywell international Inc. (NYSE: HON) raised guidance and found some traction in the market Friday, too. As we noted earlier this month, many investors appear more interested in the future than in what companies accomplished last quarter, so positive guidance from any company might receive a hearty reception.
