I will be out of town tomorrow, so am sending y'all the weekly report today.
The US DOLLAR INDEX has made one, two, three tops since 22 January. Yes, it remains above its 50 day moving average (DMA)but keeps grinding downward. A close below 83.89 will send the fall into high gear. I am no longer looking for dollar's rally to reach 88.
The GOLD/SILVER RATIO has broken 72 -- good, good, O, very good! Ratio should drop quickly toward the 200 DMA at 65.62. That implies that silver is about to leap, and leap much further and faster than gold. Fasten your seatbelts.
Look at SILVER'S huge 60 cent gain this week, 5%. Silver has targeted its 200 DA at 13.54 at a minimum, but more likely it will scream through 14.00 or higher before it runs out of gas. Next week should see big doings in silver.
GOLD is now knocking on the door of 920 - 940 resistance. Tomorrow or next week will break through and challenge the July high at 980. This can unfold very fast. Once Gold pierces 980, it will begin a run for US$1,200. Expect a big party in gold next week, so wear your party hat.
I suspect both gold and silver are entering the last leg of this particular move. Sharp sudden rises are possible in silver and gold prices next week, but a rest ought to follow after that. Looks like we've seen the last of silver below 1200 and gold below 900.
On this day in 1937 Pres. Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the US Supreme court with pliable judges who would allow his radical fascist takeover of the economy by the federal government. He proposed to simply increase the number of Supreme Court justices. If Roosevelt had been pushing harder and harder to see when the country would finally say NO! he found that point with his packing scheme.
Y'all have a great weekend.
