Today is one of those days when events force me to suspect that my cynicism is way too optimistic.
Are any rational or semi-intelligent people fooled by the miasmic word-fog that comes from the Fed and Janet Yellen? We're gonna raise rates, we're not gonna raise rates, employment is rising, employment is fallling, economy is heating up/frosting over, just yak out all the self-contradictory nonsense you can imagine. These folks couldn't beat out a straight answer with a ball peen hammer and a crowbar, because they have no clue what the answer is, what's happening, or how to pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.
Why in the world does anybody listen to these fools? I reckon cause they're bigger fools than the Fed fools. Boy howdy, they are gonna be some kind of mad when they figure out how the Fed has scammed 'em! Gonna be decorating lampposts with central bankers.
Stocks broke down today. Dow closed below 18,000 at 17,959.64, down 77.46 and a new low close. S&P500 sank beneath 2,100 to 2,097.94 (down 13.78). Beneath what is there? Only air. Serious avalanching starts soon.
Mercy! GOLD PRICE shot up $20.40 (1.6%) to close at $1,306.80 on Comex. That's not a typo. Silver rose 27.5 (1.5%) to 1866¢.
GO feast your eyes on the gold chart, http://schrts.co/pbxEDM
First look at this: It shot clean through the 50 day moving average and closed above that $1,300 resistance. It has traded back up into the trading channel from which it fell out. (There's a better construction in that sentence somewhere, but durned if I can pull it out.) The MACD is in upward mode and has lots of room to move up. So is the RSI. Volume is good, rising with price. Hellery Clinton's emails are GOOD for gold. This rally will run further.
Silver price chart's here, http://schrts.co/o96FnV
Silver cleared its 50 DMA and has set its sights on that top trading channel boundary. Volume was a little lower today, but was huge yesterday, signifying folks climbing aboard. RSI & MACD still have a ways to run.
About the 8th of November there's a little cyclical top due, which might mark the limit of this run & beginning of a small correction. Regardless, silver & gold prices have begun their next rally, will end the year higher, and will jump into 2017. Better buy.
