Did today disprove my thesis that yesterday's gold and silver price drop was occasioned by options expiry? No. True, gold and silver prices dropped a bit more, but not past significant support. The gold price stopped at $900.50 and the silver price at $17.38, rather than breaking down further.
I think that's the last of the downside. Tomorrow should recover a little, then next week should see silver and gold prices rising. Rising dollar index and falling oil make a headwind for silver and gold prices.
Stocks are dead in the water. Time to buy more silver and gold, unless tomorrow sees them drop sharply (below $880 and $17).
Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.
