SILVER and GOLD PRICES began yesterday the correction they have been hinting at. The GOLD PRICE should not drop further than $1,020, maybe not further than $1,030 or thereabouts. I do not expect a long correction -- short and brief. Dollar's weak performance yesterday gives the lie to the notion that the silver and gold price hang only on the dollar. They're marching to their own tune. Correction should end not later than 30 October, maybe sooner. Take this chance to buy more silver and gold, and especially to sell any remaining stocks.
The head of the European Central Bank tried to talk up the dollar yesterday, in vain. Dollar index closed up 5 gigantic basis points. Stocks managed to punch through 10,000, as long expected, but can't follow through. Watch Dow 10,375, which is a 50% correction from the Oct. 2007 - March 2009. Stocks will probably fail around there.
