This is the Sort of Hint Silver and Gold Give When Turning Around

I'm sure SILVER & GOLD PRICES could have performed better today, but I don't know how. This is the sort of hint they give when turning around. Silver blasted up strongly (22.3 cents) to close above 1305 resistance that before had stymied it. The GOLD/SILVER ratio dropped abruptly (50.665 to 49.863). Yes, gold might not have closed above resistance at 661, but precious few days bring everything good. Silver is warning that a rally lies ahead. Whether it be strong enough to breach 1500 and 720 for gold, we'll see, but in any event here's the strength I was expecting. Tomorrow should bring higher prices as silver leads gold forward.

The US DOLLAR INDEX today fought off an early morning attack, fell back to 82.05, then rallied back to 82.35-ish. Dollar's pattern is now higher lows and higher highs, but it is stuck at 82.35 resistance. Must be an awful lot of people who distrust the dollar out there, all waiting to short it again at 82.35. At some point the dollar will win, at least for its little rally for the next few months.

STOCKS remain as overvalued as ever, & climbed a meager 14 points today (Dow 13,521.34). Tomorrow the Dow will try to reach its last high at 13,564. See what happens then -- if it fails, then it places a double top over the market. Whatever happens, swap stocks for silver & gold.

Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.

"Buy Silver and Gold Coins at the Best Prices"

To avoid confusion, please remember that the comments above have a very short time horizon. Always invest with the primary trend. Gold's primary trend is up, targeting at least $1,250.00; silver's primary is up targeting 16:1 gold/silver ratio or $78.13; stocks' primary trend is down, targeting Dow under 2,900 and worth only one ounce of gold; US$ or US$-denominated assets, primary trend down; real estate in a bubble, primary trend way down.
