Five day/15 minute charts went a little lower than I wanted, but did not violate the lows seen on Monday. Whoa! So we have a bottom, followed by higher highs and a higher low, an embryonic uptrend.
I bought silver yesterday and a little gold today. I may end up choking on it, but at least I eat my own cooking.
Markets are dead in the water ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. floor traders might try some tricks in Friday's thin markets, but that won't stick, up or down.
Stocks sawed back and forth without gain. S&P500 lost 0.27 to 2,088.87 while the Dow Industrials gained 1.2 to 17,813.39. No movement, no significance.
US dollar index climbed to a new intraday high for the move since October at 100.23, and a new high close at 99.82, up 24 basis points. These are marginal moves, and clearly for now the dollar is stalled. Vulnerable to a sudden drop if spooked. What might spook it I couldn't say, if Turkey, arguably a surrogate for the US, shooting down a Russian warplane won't do the job, and it hasn't. It appears, by the way, that Obama and Company are in fact stupid enough to embroil the whole world in a war. Better pray they wise up fast.
Euro lost 0.25% to $1.0618. Yen lost 0.14 to 81.48. Just looking at their charts makes you want to reach for the wastebasket and puke.

I mention these two inflation markets because most everybody in the world, including ventral bankers and their economists, who don't know an economy from Adam's off ox, expects what they call "deflation" and lower commodity prices. What if the market surprises everybody? What if we are watching now not only bottoms in silver and gold prices, but in other commodities as well? No turnaround has appeared yet, just these little clouds the size of a man's hand on the horizon. One thing that might tip it over is the Fed failing to raise rates in December. That would pull the plug out of the dollar's heel and send commodities flying.
May you all enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving and a grateful heart for all God's mercies.

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.
