The key reversals upward posted last Thursday in SILVER and GOLD PRICES
prices remain in place. The silver price is weaker and must not close below $9.20, but it should manage. I suspect today's lackluster metals performance (the gold price up 50 cents and the silver price up 16 cents) stemmed from shorts returning form their weekend and placing new positions. Expect higher silver and gold prices this week. As long as that key reversal holds, you can safely buy, because the bottom has been made.
There was no big news today, other than the new announcements of massive layoffs, auto manufacturers bailout, and more bank bail outs, but something sure made both stocks and the US Dollar index sick.
Stocks appear to have contradicted their key reversal last Thursday by closing below Thursday's 8,835 Dow close, down today 224 to 8,274. The Dow tried twice to pierce 8,900 and failed twice. It closed today virtually on the day's low. Unless it reverses upward tomorrow, the Dow is headed much lower.
Some force is hammering the US DOLLAR INDEX above 87.5. With two lower tops (88+ & 87.5) the dollar has the look of having topped. Only a rise above 88 would put the fear of lower prices behind the buck.
