“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

4 Hour Gold Chart

Gold continues its range trade and has now moved to the top of that range between $1500 and $1480 - $1470. A strong push past $1500 would be a psychological boost to the gold bulls and would unnerve a few of the weaker shorts as well. We could expect to see their short covering provide enough fuel to take it to $1510 should that occur.

It will take a close through $1520 to let it challenge $1530 and give it the potential to then attack $1550.

Downside moves towards $1480 - $1470 continue to attract buying and with the Dollar fading from near the 76 level again, that buying should continue. I would not expect $1470 to give way unless the USDX were to be able to push towards 76.50.
