“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

Not much going on today (Thursday). A slow day with nothing having changed for gold which remains in its recent range.




Ditto for Silver which is also working in a range with $36 or so on the top side and $33 down on the bottom.




The Continuous Commodity Index was lower today surrending a large portion of its gains from yesterday but is attempting to hold above the broken support line on its weekly chart. We would want to see it be able to do so tomorrow (Friday) as a strong finish to end the week would bode well for gold and silver next week. The flip side is a weak finish would see pressure on the metals to start off next week barring any unforeseen geopolitical events over the weekend.
