    The GOLD PRICE gained $10.70 to $1,727.20 (up 0.62%), nor did silver lag behind, up 66.4 cents to 3434.8c, a 1.97% gain.

    Solid action, controverting, gainsaying, and nailing the lid on any downside outcome.

    The GOLD PRICE needed to climb over $1,720 – $1,725 resistance. Good enough, well done, but still must wipe away yesterday’s shame by closing above $1,740 — reasonable chance of accomplishing that in the sunny morning.

    On a four month chart Gold has validated the imperishable (Oh, I hope I don’t have to eat THAT word) strength and solidity of that neckline support around $1,705. It leapt up today, vaulting over the 20 DMA (1,722.93) with ease.

    In the teeth of yesterday’s fright, the market has spoken, and it said, “No further!”

    The SILVER PRICE fall yesterday pictures a classic spike bottom Today it began rising at the New York open, and by 9:30 gapped up, then gapped again, from 3390c to 3425c. Made one little dip to 3395 late in the day, unless that is some artifact on my chart, then snapped right back.

    Four month chart tells an even stronger tale, with silver posting its highest interday price since October 11, 3449c. The SILVER PRICE stands way above all its moving averages (50 = 3318, 200 = 3098, 20 = 3277, 300=3127). Little to say here outside, “Next stop, 3550c!”

    Of course, I could be wrong, being nothin’ more than a natural born fool from Tennessee. But y’all know, now, that sometimes in the play the fool turns out to be the wisest person around? Think about King Lear. But shucks! We don’t have no kings in Tennessee, only fools.

    Buy silver and gold. A very big and long running rally is just now starting. Buy.

    Sometimes I feel like the only sane person in the whole durned lunatic asylum. Silver and gold came right back today while Republicans and Democrats dashed hopes of dodging the fiscal cliff by sniping at each other. The corruption, self-centeredness, and self-serving waffling from business, finance, and government are all undermining all loyalty and confidence from the core supporters of US society, namely, the middle class. I sweat bullets and weep thinking about what sort of hideous false prophet they are paving a road for, loudly and repetitively spouting his nostrums so that the weak, weary, and distrusting flock to him — not because he has solutions indeed, but because he consistently preaches the same line, like Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Roosevelt, Mussolini, Peron. Their solutions never worked, they just kept on repeating them so long that folks believed they might, and because they were so desperate to hear ANYBODY with a plan.

    Having hacked up that bone from my throat, I’ll look at markets now.

    The scabby, ragged US dollar turned down again today, having spent all it could beg on yesterday’s drunk. It quickly sank again to the gutter bottom just above 80 at 80.021. Last four days have left behind a head and shoulders top with a neckline bare basis points above 80.

    Eight month chart hovers just above catastrophe. Words like “seismic event” and “Krakatoa” come to mind. 50 DMA stands at 80.08, and just a few basis points under that some long term support. Once the dollar falls though that all those gamblers who had been shorting the euro until the NGM shooed them off will rush to short the dollar. Won’t be pretty. RSI and MACD chant together in a Russian bass “Down down down DOWN!”

    Euro rose a scootch today, up 0.15% to $1.2978. Trying to peek through the downtrend line and stands barely above its clustered moving averages. Likely to run to $1.3150 at least, maybe higher. Will stink just as foully at $1.3150 as it does here, no, worse.

    Yen ended down 0.04% at 121.80 cents/Y100. I imagine some sort of understanding exists among the gentlemen central bankers that the 120 – 118 number is about as low as the yen will be allowed to fall.

    US$1=Y82.10=E0.7705=0.029114 oz Ag=0.000579 oz Au.

    Stocks beat the 13,000 resistance today, and so will run a little higher. Dow gained 36.71 (0.28%) to 13,021.83. S&P500 added 6.02 to 1,415.95 (up 0.43%).

    Gain today was more than revealed by a 36.71 point skip. Stocks broke through the downtrend line left by their October – end-November fall, plus crossing above their 20 DMA (12,890) and 200 DMA (12,995). That sets the Dow up for a test of the 50 DMA (13,209) and resistance at 13,300.

    Investors are all besotted with hopeful economic news, but just like a drunk in a bind, any old alcohol will do, it doesn’t have to be single malt Scotch. Thus the on again, off again fiscal cliffs talk thrills them, or if that fails, housing climbing some meaningless fraction of a point. If it wasn’t that, it’s be stray dogs.

    Maybe I am just a sourpuss. Maybe, or maybe I see that fundamental purging and repairs to the economy have not even been attempted. Just the opposite, the flood of money has prevented them. Yet the answer out of the Potomac swamp will be the same: another wave of liquidity. Print until we die, and after us, the flood!

    Can’t be fixed.

    To avoid confusion, please remember that the comments above have a very short time horizon. Always invest with the primary trend. Gold’s primary trend is up, targeting at least $3,130.00; silver’s primary is up targeting 16:1 gold/silver ratio or $195.66; stocks’ primary trend is down, targeting Dow under 2,900 and worth only one ounce of gold; US$ or US$-denominated assets, primary trend down; real estate bubble has burst, primary trend down.

    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.

    The GOLD PRICE got hit over the head with a baseball bat just about exactly when the New York market opened this morning, plunging in seconds from $1,735 to $1,705.88 by 9:30. Then it began to climb, reached as high as $1,722, and traded the rest of the day above $1,715. Closed down $25.80 at $1,716.50.

    Filter out the noise. On the 4 month chart the GOLD PRICE merely fell back to the neckline of that upside-down head and shoulders. Yep, it fell through its 50 DMA (1,740.90) and the 20 DMA ($1,722.51).

    Two outcomes are possible: lower or higher.

    If lower, gold will breach $1,705 tomorrow and trade toward $1,670. If this marks gold finishing the correction begun in October, it could fall all the way to $1,640, where the rising uptrend line from the June low awaits.

    If higher, then gold may piddle tomorrow, perhaps climb above $1,720, licking today’s wounds. Any close above $1,726 points it upward, but this shame will only be fully removed by a close above that $1,740.90 fifty-day moving average.

    The market will tell you which route it prefers tomorrow.

    Same forces that attacked gold today as the market opened assaulted the SILVER PRICE as well, driving it from 3380c to 3291 by 9:30 a.m. Yet silver came back sharply and reached 3365 by 12:45, then traded sideways above 3360c the rest of the day. Silver lost 29.7 cents to close Comex at 3368.4c, down only 0.87% to gold’s 1.48% loss. Ratio showed silver’s relative strength by closing at 50.959, down from yesterday by 0.61%.

    The SILVER PRICE four month chart looks right different to gold’s, mostly because it stands so far above the neckline of that upside-down head and shoulders. Silver did prick its 50 DMA (3319c) but closed way above that.

    Once again, two outcomes are possible. If lower, silver will trade through the neckline (now about 3200c) and trade to the uptrend line from the June l02, now about 3025c. Before that comes the 300 DMA (3128c) and the 200 DMA (3098c) either of which might prove to be silver’s safety net.

    If higher, silver ought to turn tomorrow and not trade below 3290 and closing at least above the 50 DMA (3319c). Best of all would be a close — soon, if not tomorrow –above the last intraday high at 3428c.

    Market is going to tell you tomorrow, and that right early, I suspect. Maybe silver and gold can move lower, but a huge buying interest lurks around $1,705 and 3300c.

    Right about the time you think you are pretty smart had have this market thing pert nigh figured out, markets slap you winded to remind you how priceless humility is.

    US dollar index lost 9.7 basis points today to 80.252, so that did not occasion the drop in silver and gold. It’s flat today, but headed to the bowels of the earth.

    Euro rose 0.11% to $1.2958, but merely continues to dance over and around its 50 DMA ($1.2913) and 62 DMA ($1.2879). News out of Europe reported today that EU regulators approved E37 bn (US$47.9bn) for Spanish banks. Top 4 have a credit portfolio equal to 40% of Spain’s GDP. EU approved E100 bn last June, but this is the first dose they’ve released.

    Spit in the wind, but the markets suck it up as if it were angels riding to the rescue on chariots of fire.

    Yen today rose 0.08% to 121.85c/Y100. Has risen enough to close the gap left behind on its plunge. Can it continue to advance? Like betting on a one-legged rooster at a cockfight.

    Believe it or not, stocks rose 106.98 (0.83%) to Dow 12,985.11 and 10.99 (0.79% to S&P500 1,409.93, and they STILL couldn’t break through the downtrend line from October. I expect they will, though, and rally further between now and year end, but it’s a doomed rally.

    As always, the media, seeking some cause, offered the meretricious US budget talks and a rise in housing prices. In fact, stocks plunged until 10:00 a.m., and only then began to rise.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from stocks.

  • The Silver and Gold Price are Still Offering a Rare Opportunity to Buy at Low Risk

      0 comments

    Gold Price Close Today : 1742.30
    Change : -7.30 or -0.42%

    Silver Price Close Today : 33.98
    Change : -0.16  or 0.46%

    Gold Silver Ratio Today : 51.27
    Change : 0.02 or 0.04%

    The silver & GOLD PRICE spent another day digesting Friday’s gains. Gold backed off $7.30 to $1,742.30 and silver gave back 15.6 cents to 3398.1c.

    Filter out the noise: for the GOLD PRICE that amounted to nothing more than touching back to the 50 DMA ($1,741.96). Low at $1,739.86 handily defended that $1,740 support. For the SILVER PRICE, it was merely a touchback to support, with a low at 3389c.

    Here’s a Tennessee fool’s guess: next little move will be stout, probably taping on 3550c for silver & $1,800 for gold. But what do I know? I spend all my nights huntin’ possum & days sitting on the front porch. Won’t be able to do that much longer. Armadillos are replacing the possums, & not even a buzzard will eat an armadillo & a dog won’t track one.

    Back to the point: today made no change to the technical outlook for the SILVER & GOLD PRICE. Gold needs to remain above $1,738 and silver above 3389c. And of course, they ought to keep steadily advancing.

    I still believe this breakout offers a rare opportunity to buy silver & gold at low risk.

    Watching markets is liable to make you feel bi-polar: one day king, next day pauper. That’s why it’s so important to filter the noise out of the symphony playing underneath.

    Today the scrofulous US dollar index rose 21.8 basis points (0.28%) to 80.346. Filter out the noise, & you’ll see it doesn’t amount to a hill of beans.

    Dollar index bounced today after careening through its 200 (80.76) and 20 (80.67) day moving averages on Friday. It hit the 50 DMA, 80.03, & today bounced. Even a flat basketball will bounce a little, but that ain’t buoyancy.

    The theme playing beneath this began 7 days ago when the Dollar hit 81.46, then failed, and hath failed ever since. Can’t repair that. Headed for 78.60 & lower. Oh, the Nice Government Men may slow it down, even engineer a tiny rally-ette or two to shake off, confuse, and demoralize the short sellers, but down it will go, or axheads start floating.

    A reader in the UK asked me about the British Pound, but I am loath to deliver such bad news: y’all a pretty much sunk. I don’t keep up with British economic statistics, but what I read puts your situation somewhat lower than Europe’s & somewhat higher than Japan’s. Don’t brag, the zloty’s status is higher than Japan’s, too.

    Looking at a two year four month chart plainly shows the Nice Government men managing the pound sterling in a range from $1.63 on the top to $1.525 on the bottom. Yes, it poked its head above that line in 2011, only to be soundly slapped back. In October it (nearly) hit $1.63 again, but has since dived for the ocean depths to close today at $1.6026.

    The pound has formed an even sided triangle, & once it punctures that bottom boundary, today about $1.59, it will sink toward $1,53 again. Nothing encouraging in that chart. If I were y’all in the UK, I’d be swapping paper pounds for silver & gold so fast the onlookers would think I was a threshing mill about to blow up.

    Of course, I would be doing the same with yen, euros, or US dollars, so don’t take it personal, you folks in Great Britain. They’re doing it to all of us.

    By the way, silver & gold look ready to turn up strongly against the pound sterling.

    Yen closed at 121.78 cents/Y100, like a barbell dropped off the Queen Mary looking for the bottom. Euro fell 0.35% to $1.2945. Might be headed higher against the US dollar, but not confirmed yet.

    US$1=Y82.12=E0.7725=0.029428 oz Au = 0.000574 oz Au.

    Stocks worked hard at disappointing their partisans again today,. Dow lost 89.24 (0.69%) to 12,878.13. S&P500 followed right along, losing 7,.35 (0.52%) to 1,398.94.

    No wonder, as stocks have run plumb up against the steep downtrend line their fall since early October hath drawn. They also bumped their noggin against the 200 DMA (12,993.03). Even if they punch through, they will hit strong resistance 13,300.

    The GOLD PRICE leapt $23.50, clean over all that $1740 resistance to $1,751.40. Silver jumped 77.2 cents on Friday to close over 3400c at 3411.6c.

    Today both metals were digesting those gains. The GOLD PRICE backed off $1.80, nothing at all, to $1,749.60 and silver gained 2.1 cents to 3413.7c.

    Just how good was Friday’s leap? Plumb delicious. The SILVER PRICE cleared its 50 day moving average (3321c) and now standeth above its 200, 300, 20, and 50 DMAs in that order. Only thing standing between silver and eternal fame is now 3550, and it will slice through that like Jim Bowie slicing ripe peaches.

    That gold looks just about as fine as silver. Punched through that 50 DMA ($1,742.39) on Friday, and also stands above its 150, 200, 20, and 50 DMAs now. And look at the RSI and MACD! Just like silver, gold has a clear track in front of it and can rise for another couple of months before it begins to look overbought.

    Now, before y’all back up to that boot tree and start kicking yourselves, let me tell you that right here at a breakout is the time to buy. This rise will run into next spring and gold will reach $2,300 – $2,700. If the ratio drops to 30:1 by then, silver could stand at 9000c (that’s $90 to y’all who can’t cipher so quick). Buy it now.

    Key to all this was the US dollar index’ collapse on Friday. Lost 67.4 basis points (0.83%) to 80.267. Trading today at 80.191.

    So what? Since December 2011 the US dollar index has been forming a giant Head and Shoulders top. Left shoulder peaked at 81.78 in January, came back to a 78.10 – 78.60 neckline, rose to an 84.10 head in July, fell back to 78.60 neckline in September, then last week topped that Right Shoulder at 81.46.

    Although it has not yet broken down through the neckline (now about 78.60) it has plunged through the 200 DMA (80.75) and the 20 DMA (80.66). Looks sick as a hog eating tomatoes. Won’t last long at these altitudes. Destined for lower ground.

    Meanwhile the Euro is making hay. Crossed above the 50 DMA ($1.2917) on Friday, and closed today at $1.2970, a skootch under unchanged. I’ll be mildly interested to see if it can break through the downtrend line about $1.3050, but not interested enough to buy the nasty thing. Makes no difference which of these scabby fiat currencies you look at, yen, dollar, or euro, all are destined for doom, and, we hope, history’s dustbin. Swap fiat for silver or gold.

    Yen, by the by, has been talked down 4% or more in the last two weeks by politicians. Bank of Japan needed take no action, just let the politicos run their mouths and they’ve driven the yen from 126.43 cents in mid-November to 121.93 today. Hard as it is either to imagine or to swallow, the Japanese economy is even more indebted and in worse shape than the US. When Humpty Shirakawa falls off that wall, he will splatter egg yolk all over east Asia.

    Stock investors and brokers are critters of habit. They heard stocks usually rise this time of year, and will bite on a rumor like that every time. On Friday the Dow rose 172.79 to close at 13,009.68. S&P500 added 18.13 (both rose 1.3%) to 1,409.15. Both backed off today, Dow by 42.31 to 12,967.37 and the S&P500 by 2.86 to 1,406.29.

    Any of y’all ever heard of the Tulip Bubble? This works a lot the same way.

    Don’t ne’er a one of y’all point a finger at me and say I didn’t warn y’all, ’cause I did. I kept telling y’all silver and gold had bottomed and y’all ought to buy. The only thing worse than somebody who doesn’t listen is somebody who keeps saying, “I told you so!”

    Yeah, I know: I’m crazy. People been telling me that for years, some of ’em official NGM. But I’m not making this up. If you want to spend a couple of weeks slaving over a hot chart, you’ll come to the same conclusions.

    But mercy! I’m nothing more than a natural born fool from Tennessee. Don’t listen to me.

    I have to ask you birdwatchers something. Any of y’all ever seen a FLOCK of red-headed woodpeckers? Driving down the road Saturday I saw more than a dozen of ’em chasing and playing with each other, then today about as many showed up in my front yard, having a field day on the branches. Any idea what motivated them, other than having a good time and jubilating with each other?

    SPECIAL OFFER: DUTCH GOLD

    One of the most commonly traded gold coins in the world (thanks to their empire) is the Netherlands Ten Guilder containing 0.1947 troy ounce fine gold. These are all minted before 1934.

    These small coins usually cost 6% to 8% or more over their gold content. I bought a batch of them right and can sell these at about the same price as the big Mexican fifty pesos.

    Prices are based on gold spot at $1,749.60 and silver spot at $34.137. All lots are sold subject to the special conditions below, no exceptions. I have only 29 lots.

    ONE LOT consists of Ten (10) each Netherlands ten guilders at a 4% premium over their gold content or $354.25 each. So the total cost of one lot will be 10 x $354.25 = $3,542.50 plus $25 shipping = $3,567.50.

    Limit four lots per customer, please.

    Special Conditions:

    If I have miscounted my inventory and come up short, the LAST person to order will receive fewer coins, at a price reduced to reflect the smaller quantity.

    First come, first served, and no re-orders at these prices. I will write orders based on the time I receive your e-mail.

    We will not take orders for less than the minimums shown above.

    All sales on a strict “no-nag” basis. We will ship as soon as your check clears, but we allow Two weeks (14 days) for your check to clear. Calls looking for your order two days after we receive your check will be politely and patiently rebuffed.

    If you want faster shipping, please send a wire (wire instructions will appear on your trade confirmation). ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. You may order by e-mail only to offers@the-moneychanger.com. No phone orders, please. Please do NOT order by replying to this email, because it will delay your email.

    Your email must include your complete name, address, and phone number. We cannot ship to you without your address. Sorry, we cannot ship outside the United States or to Tennessee.

    Repeat, you must include your complete name, address, and phone number. Our clairvoyant quit without warning last week and we can no longer read your mind.

    2. Orders are on a first-come, first-served basis until supply is exhausted.

    3. “First come, first-served” means that we will enter the orders in the order that we receive them by e-mail.

    4. If your order is filled, we will e-mail you a confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation, your order was not filled.

    5. You will need to send payment by personal check or bank wire (either one is fine) within 48 hours. It just needs to be in the mail, not in our hands, in 48 hours.

    6. “No Nag Basis” means that we allow fourteen (14) days for personal checks to clear before we ship. Want your order faster? Send a bank wire, but that’s not required. Once we ship, the post office takes four to fourteen days to get the registered mail package to you. All in all, you’ll see your order in about one month if you send a check.

    7. Mention goldprice.org in your email.

    To avoid confusion, please remember that the comments above have a very short time horizon. Always invest with the primary trend. Gold’s primary trend is up, targeting at least $3,130.00; silver’s primary is up targeting 16:1 gold/silver ratio or $195.66; stocks’ primary trend is down, targeting Dow under 2,900 and worth only one ounce of gold; US$ or US$-denominated assets, primary trend down; real estate bubble has burst, primary trend down.

    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. No, I don’t.
