Let's focus on the GOLD PRICE, because silver is the follower right now. It reached up and touched the downtrend line from the October 2012 high. Nearly reached the 200 DMA at $1,133.64, but not quite. Expect the price of gold to show itself strong tomorrow. Very strong. Maybe strong enough for the Nice Government Men -- bless their tinted-window white Plymouths! -- to want to hit gold on the head. Doesn't matter, the gold price is ready to rumble.
Y'all have had your signal: you ought to be buying silver and gold.
Again today the Fed illustrated its ability to roil markets. With the usual mumbling the Fed blew hot and cold out of both sides of its mouth. Stocks had held up well until the Fed statement at 2:00, when a giant vacuum cleaner hose snaked up out of the Earth's Core and began sucking them down. Dow lost 222.77 (1.38%) to 15,944.46, casting any rally in doubt. S&P500 dropped 20.68 (1.09%) to 1,882.95. Bad, bad juju, Janet. You ought to just keep your mouth closed.
US dollar index also hit the skids, dropping through the bottom boundary of that rising wedge (bad, bad) and closing at 98.95, barely above its 50 DMA (98.89) but below the 20 DMA (98.97). This is not yet fatal, but another 20 basis points and it will be. Euro rose 02.24% and may have broken out upwards, but the Yen dropped 0.2%. Go figure.
That central bank socialism really works, don't it? Just like a rattan steam engine.

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.
