The SILVER PRICE backed off 4.2 cents (0.27%) at $15.657. The GOLD PRICE lost $10 (0.85%) $1,159.60.
Today's result is not astounding, and while it's not a completed key reversal, it also was not a loss of all Friday's gains. It's just equivocal.
Remember that $1,180 which for so long backstopped gold will now prove heavy resistance.
When you don't exactly know what is happening, sometimes the best course is just to watch and wait until you do know.
Stocks managed to rise to new highs for the Dow and S&P500 today. Dow rose 39.81 (0.23%) to 17,615.38. S&P500 lifted 6.34 (0.31%) to 2,038.26. These prices are right on that overhead boundary I have been mentioning. Punching through would send both indices running higher, but resistance there ought to be tough and volume is drying up.
US dollar index rose 27 basis points 90.31%) to 87.90. That negates the key reversal from Friday, so it could rise higher. Japanese Yen lost all Friday's gains, no surprise there. Euro nixed a potential key reversal from Friday.

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.
