The GOLD PRICE sank $8.70 to $1,294.70 and the SILVER PRICE lost 6.9 cents to 1969.0c. Disaster? Not quite. Today's range with a 1958c low touched the downtrend line form the April 2013 high, same line silver broke through skyward in April. This constitutes a kiss back to breakout, and should hold -- should.
The GOLD PRICE low at $1,291.20 brought it nearly to that 50% correction at $1,287, which is the neckline of the upside down Head and Shoulders gold broke through in February. Gold has now tangled its feet in the 50 DMA ($1,303.8) and 200 DMA ($1,299.41). Today's trading pretty much hit my targets for this decline. Now we might from here get a rally, then one more touch back to these levels.
Of course, I will be shown once again to be no more'n a nacheral born fool from Tennessee should silver and gold prices drop sharply. Fool or not, I don't see that on the chart.
Here are the highlights. Stocks continued to deteriorate, although the closes didn't show the full view of it. Closes were near yesterdays, but the lows were a lot lower, so the range was much lower than yesterdays. Whoa! S&P500 broke DOWN out of that even-sided triangle we've been watching. Dow lost 4.76 (0.03%) to 16,264.23 while the S&P500 slid 3.52 (0.19%) to 1,849.04. Should follow through lower and lower.
US dollar index finally stood up and gained a whole 16 basis points (0.2%) to 80.28. This leaves the chart hopeful, but nothing to brag about. Euro looks like it ate a pound of bad meat, dropped 0.32% today to $1.3741, not far from turning very negative by falling below its 50 DMA ($1.3715). Yen lost 0.14% to 97.87 c/Y100, still treading water.
Argentum et aurum comparenda sunt -- -- Gold and silver must be bought.

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.
