The GOLD PRICE burst the top bound of its range ($940) but as yet hasn't been able to burst through $955. Last two days it's trapped between $955 - $945, so our "must beat" close is $955. Chart says that gold will run at least to $990. Will it then burst the bounds of $1,000? Can't say, but if not soon, then later. Gold's MACD turned up 13 July and has a long way to rise. RSI is a little higher, a cautionary sign. All in all, gold has plenty of room to move higher. Today on Comex gold closed $946.60, down $1.90.
The SILVER PRICE was stopped at $13.75 cents. It has left a V-pattern in July's chart, falling from $13.60 to $12.45, then rising back to $13.75 in six days. ΩWhew! Time for a rest. Rest, however, should not drop lower than $13.45 close. Targets in front of us are $13.80 and then $14.00.
Friends, while the summer doldrums are here you'd better stock up on silver and gold. Fall will be neither gentle nor kind. Gird up your loins and get your house in order.
The US DOLLAR INDEX has fallen nearly to its June low at 78.33. The rollover top suggests twill re-visit 77.70, maybe 76. Trading right now at 78.781, down 5 basis points.
STOCKS have risen seven days running. How long can that last? Not much longer. Yet the real question here is, Does this rally to 8,900 form a double top with June, & therefore cap stocks rally, OR will the Dow march further toward 9,700? Regardless stocks should correct in the next couple of days, and once that correction passes, we will see the longer term direction. Dow today rose 67.79 to 8,915.94, and S&P 500 closed 954.58,. Up 3.45.
