Here's a gold price chart on the right:
No surprise, the GOLD PRICE sliced through its 20 DMA today, so gravity and momentum are weighing heavily. If it doesn't stop at that $1,175 area that stopped it before, it is doomed to drop to $1,162, the last low, or $1,140, the March low.
The volatility is killing me. The Greek crisis gets blamed for it, but it arises out of markets that are nervous, greedy, scared, and confused. That's why they dump the dollar for 118 points one day, and buy it for 118 the next, why stocks lose 200 in two days then take back 100. All the unknowns and the fearful suspicions are weighing markets down, especially the suspicion that the Fed just might be stupid or lying about the economy.
I would say, Look for a sudden, sharp turnaround as a buy signal, but we've had too many of those that have fizzled lately.
Exampling how volatile and spooky markets are -- thanks to stabilizing central banks -- the US dollar index today rose 118 basis points (1.25%) to 95.70. On what news? What changed? Somebody discovered how to make electricity for free in the US? Nope, one Fed Reserve governor named Jerome Powell made a speech claiming the US economy "could" be ready for a rate hike in September, followed by a second in December and the US economy is set to strengthen in the year's second half.
What I don't grasp: the Fed has NEVER yet, not once, correctly forecast the US economy. Why would anybody believe any of their shills today? Beats me.
Dollar began rising last night, and opened today (24 hour day) about 94.80. Then it steadily rose until 9:30 eastern, then flattened the rest of the day. Silver and gold prices pretty much painted the reverse of that.
In spite of rumors the Greek crisis is solved, stocks could hardly put one foot in front of the other today. Dow managed to climb 24.29 (0.13%) to 18,144.07. S&P500 added 1.35 (0.06%) to 2,124.20. Volume is not falling but also not growing. Can still inch higher.
|Dow in Gold|
Here's the Dow in Silver on the left, It is reaching for its upper gator jaw, but not quite there at 1,152.96 troy ounces. Same vision applies here. A price bottom is coming for silver, whether now or two weeks, it's coming.
Aurum et argentum 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.
