The pseudogap phase of the cuprate superconductors is argued to be characterized by a hidden broken symmetry of d-wave character in the particle-hole channel that leads to staggered orbital magnetism. This proposal has many striking phenomenological consequences, but the most direct signature of this order should be visible in the neutron scattering experiments. The theoretical underpinning of these experiments is discussed.
