The US DOLLAR INDEX hit 85.18 early today, then fell the rest of the day. I can't figure it out. There's some BIG seller at 85 - 85.20. Or maybe the Nice Government Men don't want the dollar to climb? But why? I thought it looked ready to challenge 86.50 again, but today's flop calls that into question.
Here we go again. The Dow nearly makes a new high but the Dow in Gold Dollars fell again today. It stands below its 50 & 17 day moving averages, and only about G$12.00 (about half an ounce) above its 200 DMA. The chart shows a series of 3 loser highs. Any close below G$390 (18.86 oz) or the 200 DMA will make a breakdown. Get out of stocks before they get you.
Swap stocks for silver & gold. I get peppered continually for panning stocks, so I looked at the charts harder today for encouragement, but couldn't find it. Yes, an uptrend is in force that keeps edging up pennies a day, but how aged it looks. I think holding 11,200 is the key. A big break is due here soon, even if it does not mark the top.
