If markets follow through on Monday their work begun today, then things are coming unravelled for the financial system & the US dollar.
STOCKS had a strange day that could have been manipulation or a market ready to rally. Dow made a new low at 10977.68, then about 2:45 (?) "somebody" started buying and it closed the day down only 128.48 points (at 11,100.54) rather than down 250 points. I reckon that's some kind of success. Forget all my pointless talk about a shallow rally, stocks are getting ready to be flushed down the pipes. Get OUT of stocks.
DOW IN GOLD DOLLARS broke to a new low since the 8/1999 high, G$239.15 (11.569 oz)
US DOLLAR INDEX closed barely above 72 after dipping below that level. Now in the aftermarket (6:00 p.m. CDT) it's trading at 71.89. A lower opening on Monday sends the dollar down to 60, or even 55. Get OUT of dollar paying investment -- CDs, annuities, bank deposits, life insurance, & hedge your pension some way with silver & gold.
SILVER and GOLD PRICES ended my suspense today by closing much higher, and through resistance at $945 & $18.25 - $18.35. The gold price closed up $18.60 at $959.50 and the silver price up 50 cents at $18.745 cents. That's it, we're off to the races. This move in gold and silver will leave you disbelieving & gasping. You will underestimate it at every turn.
There are times when a market is "high" that you don't want to buy it. At other times when a market is high, you DO want to buy because it is going HIGHER. Silver and gold just broke out after a long correction: buy the breakout.
Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.
