I have never seen a first half key reversal quite like this. All silver and gold prices need tomorrow are closes above today's.
Clearly, there was massive support down below, enough to send silver and gold rocketing up. The SILVER PRICE rose double gold's percentage rise.
Oh, and the ranges! Silver's low was $14.11 [sic] and gold's 1141.70. Think about that, then look at those closes again.
More, the US dollar index gave back its bogus gains from Friday and lost 40 basis points to 80.01.
Of COURSE we need confirmation out of silver and gold, but the promise of this day is far, far higher prices.
I had to take Susan to a doctor's appointment in Nashville, it's been a frog-strangling rain all day, and in 20 minutes I have a meeting, but I just have to write y'all about this spectacular day.
Stocks seemed to turn down today, and probably did. S&P lost 14.12 (0.68%) to 2,052.44; Dow lost 51.44 (0.3%) to 17,776.8. Not too back, but small caps are in trouble. Looks like the peak is behind stocks.
Dow and Gold and Dow in silver staged a definitive turnaround. Peaked to new highs Friday, then plunged today to new lows. Highs were double tops. Headed way lower.
Shucks! I've gotten ahead of myself. On Friday OPEC announced it would not support the oil price, and oil nosedove, down 14% for the week. That spilled over into other markets on what was (remember) a very thin trading day. US dollar index made a marginal new high shile gold plunged, taking silver with it.

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.
