Thank God, the tornadoes didn't blow us away last night. They never got closer than a county away, passing generally from Memphis (3 hours west of us) to Nashville (2 hours north). One destroyed a school in Savannah, about an hour west, but we just got a bang-up wind & rain storm. Thanks for your expressions of concern.
For now it looks as if I got it right yesterday when I said the GOLD & SILVER PRICE charts showed reverse head & shoulders bottoms. Both climbed today, the SILVER PRICE rose 20.50 cents to $16.508 while gold climbed $14.80 to US$900.70. I like that close above US$900, even pennies. But this isn't over yet.
Progress must continue -- the gold price has to close above $905, then $915, and the silver price needs to close above $16.95. Alongside the bull market we keep climbing a wall of worry.
US STOCKS (represented by the Dow) droped only 65 points today to close a 12,200. As long as this level isn't broken, it acts as support. The snap-back rally ought to resume now. Use -snatch - every opportunity to swap stocks for silver & gold.
US DOLLAR INDEX held onto its gains, closing up a mere two basis points but holding on nonetheless. Slowly, slowly the buck is building a base.
Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.
