Last year the GOLD PRICE closed $1,674.80 and the SILVER PRICE closed $30.173, so for the first time in 12 years they both have a down year. The GOLD PRICE has lost $472.90 or 28.2% while silver has lost $10.834 or 35.9%. Bound to happen sooner or later in a bull market.

Don't be fooled, the bull market in silver and gold prices continues. Harken not to the croakers and whiners. Next year the rally resumes.

Today's price movements mean very little, but I am sending y'all this commentary because it has year-end prices, for y'all who track that for your own investments.

May God bless you all with all Christ's tender mercies in 2014 and always, and may he bless the earth with peace.

To avoid confusion, please remember that the comments above have a very short time horizon. Always invest with the primary trend. Gold's primary trend is up, targeting at least $3,130.00; silver's primary is up targeting 16:1 gold/silver ratio or $195.66; stocks' primary trend is down, targeting Dow under 2,900 and worth only one ounce of gold or 18 ounces of silver. or 18 ounces of silver. US $ and US$-denominated assets, primary trend down; real estate bubble has burst, primary trend down.

WARNING AND DISCLAIMER. Be advised and warned:

Do NOT use these commentaries to trade futures contracts. I don't intend them for that or write them with that short term trading outlook. I write them for long-term investors in physical metals. Take them as entertainment, but not as a timing service for futures.

NOR do I recommend investing in gold or silver Exchange Trade Funds (ETFs). Those are NOT physical metal and I fear one day one or another may go up in smoke. Unless you can breathe smoke, stay away. Call me paranoid, but the surviving rabbit is wary of traps.

NOR do I recommend trading futures options or other leveraged paper gold and silver products. These are not for the inexperienced.

NOR do I recommend buying gold and silver on margin or with debt.

What DO I recommend? Physical gold and silver coins and bars in your own hands.

One final warning: NEVER insert a 747 Jumbo Jet up your nose.
