So the GOLD PRICE makes two, three, or four bucks a day. Not much, until you throw in some $10 days and add a pound of relentlessness. Gold is headed higher still, overbought though it be. Physical demand for investment gold is relentless, too.
The SILVER PRICE battered away again today at that old 1486 high that stopped it four days ago. You think this rally has been exciting until now? Wait until silver crosses 1500, when, in the words of John Milton, "all hell will break loose." Yes, buy now.
The gold silver ratio looks like it has turned down again, so perhaps we won't get to swap gold for silver at 58:1. The ratio won't climb above 55.5.
The US Dollar Index hit a new low today at 76.24, but managed to close higher at 77.449. Now in the late (18:37 Central time) aftermarket it's down to 76.393. It just keeps on grinding lower while silver & gold grind higher. Believe it or not, the Dollar Index is not so oversold that it can't go lower. Of the last 10 days, 8 have been down days. Avoid all investments that promise to pay you dollars in the future.
STOCKS look ready to plunge through Dow 13,400 & freefall. The Dow needs a close above 13,963 to prove that conclusion wrong. If it weren't for the Nice Government Men on the Plunge Protection Team, where would the Dow be now? The DOW IN GOLD DOLLARS, a more honest & reliable indicator, has broken down and today closed at G$346.45 (16.760 oz). It shows no signs at all of levelling off.
Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.
