The SILVER PRICE has formed a flag, and flags always fly at half staff. That implies a silver move to $17.86 before it quits to breath hard. Today closed above the 200 dma.
If y'all have been waiting to buy, stop waiting and buy. I ain't kiddin'.
A reader kindly sent me a news item from today about Walmart's 10% plunge today when the company slashed its growth outlook. Walmart stock's worst ever one day decline, and he biggest percentage fall since 1988. My friend asks, right trenchantly, "If folks can't afford to spend money at Walmart, what does that mean for the rest of retail?"
Stocks held up one day longer than I expected, but the Dow eased off 50 points yesterday and tumbled 157.14 (0.92%) today to 16,924.75. S&P lost 9.45 (0.47%) today for a 1,994.24 close.

Dow in silver closed at a new low since the July peak, 1,050.12 oz. against the lowest low, 1,068.65. Mercy, y'all, it's fixin' to sink out of sight!
Dow in Gold isn't quite as dramatic, but closed today down 1.87% at 14.35 oz, against the August low at 13.74 oz. Both the Dow in Gold and Dow in Silver are firmly headed downward, as their position below their 200 day moving averages screams.
I expected the US dollar index to move lower, but I didn't expect it to jump off a cliff. Lost 88 basis points (0.92%) to 93.92 today. That's below the last intraday low at 94.19 About the only dignity it hasn't left in the gutter is that last panic low at 92.52. It looks plumb broke now, but a close below that 92.52 will break its back sure enough.
Euro made some headway in a rally today, up 0.77% to $1.1470. Yen jumped 0.76% to 84.14. Both have turned up against the dollar. Both.

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.
