They might as well have closed down the silver & gold markets today & stayed home and drunk martinis. The SILVER PRICE had a 30 cent range with a $16.05 low, the gold price ranged over a thrilling $10.70.
That left the GOLD PRICE closing barely below the uptrend line I've been watching, the one climbing up off the November low. Yet it showeth no ambition to fall further. Silver remained above the trend line I'm concerned about, a line connecting the shoulders of that upside-down head and shoulders formed November through December. Tomorrow that stands at $16.05.
Silver and gold prices lack momentum and direction, except that since the 23 January tops their trend has been down. Unless they gainsay that some way, it will remain down. "Gainsay" means the gold price closes above $1,220 and silver above $16.80.
Stocks are sicker'n e'er a dog. That jubilatin'-est high lately may have been the Big One. Dow below 18,050 turns it seriously down. After losing 85 yesterday, Dow lost another 106.47 (0.58%) to 18,096.90 today. S&P500 lost 9.61 yesterday and another 9.25 today to end up 0.8955 lighter in two days for a close at 2,098.53.
In spite of gold & silver's weakness the last two days, both the Dow in Gold & Dow in Silver have jiggled down again. Could be a top but to early to say.
US dollar index mildly surprised me with a 54 basis point (0.56%) rise to 95.99, a scootch higher than the January high at 95.85. As yet that sayeth naught, because it could be a double top or it even could be another leg up. I doubt that, but it's possible. Euro hit a new low at $1.1079 (-0.86%).
WTIC rose 1.75% to $51.53/barrel. Refusing to break down. Maybe oil has sunk all it intends to.
Sorry I missed y'all yesterday evening, but Susan & I had to drive down to Corinth to see a friend there having sudden heart surgery today. Then I had to drive up to Kentucky this morning with my son today to pick up two Hereford sows. I've driven through more blindin' rain than Noah in the last 24 hours, so I'm going to make this fast & straight.
World right now is like a ball a kid throws straight up in the air. Y'all know how it seems to hang there just a split second at the top of its arc, right before it comes crashing back down and hits the kid in the face? It's that kind of pause. I've been reading somebody lately who has shed new light on the monetary & financial questions for me. First new viewpoint I've seen in a long time, and it shocked me. That has returned me to a longer term outcome, & I simply can't avoid saying it: the central banking monetary system is doomed. Just like that ball I mentioned above, it didn't come down in 2008 & it has paused in the air, but you trust gravity and not central bankers, because that ball is coming down. The world will change suddenly and painfully.

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.
