“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

Silver Chart notes

Silver is responding to the "Free Money" environment being maintained by the Fed to keep the US economy limping along as it shot higher when the Dollar dropped lower and fell below the 79 level on the USDX chart.

It is once again knocking on the door of a heretofore very stubborn level of chart resistance that begins at today's high and extends into the region just north of $35. If silver is going to mount a breakout move and start a trend higher, the bulls must beat back the selling that is going to come in at this level. If they do, they have a very good shot at a rather quick move to $40.

Downside support is coming in from dip buyers who are currently attracted to the metal near $33.



Turning to the Dollar chart, note that the price has now decisively broken down below chart support at the 79 level.

  3. I don't know Dan. I'm very disappointed in the price action and volume. Once the party is over with equities, I think maybe we'll see some hot money head into gold and silver, but for now - we're at the mercy of the cartel, "allowing" PM's to rise when conditions warrant (but not too much).

    Volume was sickening today. I fear they are setting another bull trap. Rally in dollar? Down she goes... CCI takes a dive? Down she goes. Until the specs rejoin the party like the good old days, the cartel has too much power to control the action. They are going to suck the life out of every last bull, while making a shitload of money at their props desk in the process. F'ing criminals.

  4. Dan, the war continues. It is going to continue..

    As a person trying to buy/sell mining entities, and make some cash, this is a very difficult market to manage. However, at some point, the Levy breaks.....

    Carry on Danno, I love your Patriotism, your outlook, your continued service. I certainly am defining this in a altruistic and/or love of service... Keep it up. Certain FBI articles today are certainly bizarro. I mean, just because the truth hurts does not give these people rights that will take advantage of. Fear is no reason to violate the TRUTH. God bless you Danno.

    Hell, I have spent the last two months attracted to $29.
