    The GOLD PRICE added $19.10 today to close Comex at $1,679.90, Silver rose 99.3 cents to 3215.2c.

    In the last two days silver has risen 139.6c (4.5%) and the GOLD PRICE $27 (1.6%).

    What jumps out at us today is the SILVER PRICE closing above its 50 day moving average (3189c). Either telepaths are working in the silver market, or news of the FOMC’s announcement leaked out. Silver gapped up on the open, traded straight up, then gapped up again, and crossed 32 resistance and the 50 DMA in the bargain.

    What’s important about the 50 DMA? Because it has capped every move since mid-October. Only barrier left before silver is the downtrend line from the October 2012 high, tomorrow about 3245c. Last high was 3249c, so any close over 3250c tomorrow will send silver shooting for 3450c, next resistance. I can’t see what will stop it, but then, I not a telepath or clairvoyant.

    Gold’s story is a wee bit more complicated. It didn’t quite best its 50 DMA (1688.44), but shot through its 20 DMA and punched into the 150 DMA (1,681.13). One tee tiny jump tomorrow takes it through the 50 DMA, but a much bigger test faces gold: bursting through $1,700. Exactly at that resistance tomorrow awaits the downtrend line from the October 2012 high. Breaking through now will boost gold to challenge $1,725.

    Every move you THINK is a breakout needs to confirm by moving further in the same direction the next day. Still, both silver and gold have built an uptrend — higher highs and higher lows — since 4 January.

    Look for higher silver and gold prices tomorrow. Again I will say, I believe silver and gold made their post-October correction low on 4 January 2013. From here both should launch a rally that will carry gold to $2,350, maybe by end-May, that will mark only the first leg of a much longer rally.

    I have to warn y’all to be careful of “We Buy Gold and Silver Shops.” Today I had a customer who wanted to sell US 90%. He called one of these shops, and they offered him $14.8 times face value for what I bought for $22.802 times face value. Y’all have to check around for pricing. Some of these folks would steal the quarters off a dead man’s eyes.

    Yea, the Fed hath spoken, and ’tis naught but vexation, vanity, and hot air. His Munificence Ben said he will keep on buying $85 billion in securities ever month, because of “bad weather.”

    Nay, I joke not. The FOMC blamed the “temporary pause” in the economy (temporary since 2008) on “temporary forces,” like bad weather. I couldn’t make up stuff this silly if I stayed up late nights.

    His Munificence said he is not backing off his inflation, so gold and silver surged higher. So did the 10 year Treasury yield. It rose a huge 0.91% to 2.006%, punching through resistance at the upper channel line. If it clears 2.4%, many more folks will begin to wonder why they are holding a losing position in US treasuries.

    Of that $85 billion His Munificence plans to spend monthly monthly, he will spend $45 billion on Treasuries and another $40 bn on Mortgage Backed Securities. In other words, he’s bailing out the banks still. He’s making the Fed the septic tank for their sewage-grade assets. HMB also said he would keep on spending $85 bn a month if the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially.

    The Keynesian stupidity motivating HMB is like your mechanic claiming he aims to fix your automobile by taking off all four wheels, dropping the transmission, dousing it with gasoline, and throwing in a match. This will do the same for the economy.

    Stocks did not like His Munificence’s plans, and dropped. Dow lost 49.69 (0.38%) to 13,904.73. S&P lost 6.8 (0.45%) to 1,501.03.

    Since I am only a natural born fool from Tennessee, I don’t claim to know much. But I have observed that tops in the stock market are just about impossible to pinpoint, even as you watch them. ‘Tis an enormous market, and just about the time you are certain it’s been beat, it raises its head for one last spike up. Therefore, I am not pinpointing or predicting, only pointing out the witnesses for the prosecution

    First, the Dow and the S&P500 both have pricked their overhead resistance (top jaw of the Jaws of Death), and both have peeked through the top of a fatal rising wedge. Both are in the right shoulder of a 16-year old head and shoulders. Both have traced out a broadening top (“Jaws of Death”) since May 2011, and within that have formed another head and shoulders through 2012.

    Call the other witnesses. The Dow in Gold gapped up four days ago, formed an island reversal, and if it gaps down again tomorrow will complete the formation. In the same time silver gapped up, gapped again to a single day top (452.10 oz), gapped down yesterday and again today, leaving that top isolated in what also partakes of Island Reversal flavor. Wait! Call those other two witnesses, the RSI and MACD that both point out a severely overbought Dow and S&P500.

    But shucks — all those witnesses may be lying.

    Ben’s generosity to the banks didn’t help the US dollar index much. It fell , losing 31.4 basis points (0.4%) to end at 79.255. This confirms its breakdown from its short term uptrend yesterday.

    Euro gapped up on that news, way over $1.3500 resistance, up 0.56% to $1.3565. That answers what it intends to do: rise.

    Yep, the yen made another new low for the move today, closing down 0.4% at 109.84 cents/Y100.

    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.

    The GOLD PRICE gained $7.90 (0.48%) to $1,660.8 while Silver gained 40.3 cents (1.3%) to 3115.9c. That’s nice, but may be driven by no more strength than folks backing out of their shorts before the uncertainty of the FOMC meeting.

    Of silver and gold I might say, “It’s always darkest before the dawn,” but somebody might remind me that it also gets pretty dark right before a tornado rips through town. Still, it’s true. Markets turn around at extremes of sentiment. When “everybody” thinks a market is going up, then it’s probably not, because “everybody” has already bought and that market has run out of buyers. Ditto but inverted for declining markets: market has run out of sellers.

    But I can wait patiently, because I know that silver and gold remain in a primary uptrend. Sooner or later, that bull trend will kick in again and carry them higher.

    Bad, bad — gold stands below all its moving averages, BUT is for the nonce at least holding on at $1,655 and at that uptrend line from the June 2012 low. We can’t MAKE it rise, we just have to watch calmly. Bad news from the FOMC meeting tomorrow — “We realize now what a terrible mistake our inflation has been since 1913, so we’re going to shut the doors and advise the American people to start using gold and silver money” — would drive gold down. Course, they might say something markets perceive as “positive” for the GOLD PRICE. Yep, I know it’s ridiculous, but we live in a world of illusion, and none on a grander scale than the Federal Reserve.

    The SILVER PRICE on the other hand, doesn’t look so bad. It stands above its 200 DMA (3065) and today closed above its 300 DMA (3113c) and 20 DMA (3112c). All this is nice, but silver must close above its 50 DMA (3189c) and then conquer the last high at 3249c.

    Mark Twain once opened a lecture tour with, “Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Silver and gold could say the very same today.

    GOLD/SILVER RATIO today registers 53.301:1. Still time to trade any remaining gold for silver, targeting a fall to 32:1 or lower (about a 40% gain in ounces). Call us if you are interested.

    Everybody has opinions, but only those who have convictions will put their money where their mouth is.

    I’m talking about the bond bubble. Botulism Ben’s strategy is founded on near-zero interest rates, but Ben doesn’t control interest rates, only the Fed Funds rate and his own jaw. Once markets take the bit in their mouth and decide they no longer love bonds, they’ll sell those bonds and interest rates will rise (yes, interest rates and bond prices move opposite to each other).

    Problem is that Ben, like much modern medicine, fixes one only to break two more. His zero interest rate policy has created a bubble in — guess what? — bonds. After all, he told the world in advance he was going to keep on suppressing interest rates, so there was little danger in buying bonds, just as in 2006, there was little danger in residential real estate.

    Point is, the yield on the 10 year Treasury note has risen to 2%, nay, has been rising since Mid-December. Oh, so far it’s only a cloud no bigger than a man’s hand on the horizon, but it continues to grow and move toward us. Should that 10 year Treasury yield cross 2.40%, Oh, my! The mayhem will become general.

    Y’all know how I love numbers, so I started poking around in history. Did y’all know that with the Dow’s close at 13,954.42 today, it stood at its highest price since 15 October 2007, not long after the all time high close on 9 October 2007 at 14,164.53?

    Wow. Pretty good, huh? But in the same 5-1/4 years it has taken the Dow to scrabble back to its 2007 height, gold has more than doubled, from $757.10 to $1,660.80 (2.197x) and silver has multiplied 2.26 times from 1376 cents an ounce to 3015.9 cents today.

    Yeah, buddy! Them stocks are on fahr like a house a-burning!

    US Dollar index is cowering under its 20 day moving average (79.95) like a little feist dog somebody’s been kicking all the time. It’s built a little even-sided triangle here, so a break up or down lies in the cards, but which way?

    Tomorrow meets and pontificates the Federal Open Market Committee, and markets, unaware of their true ignorance and fecklessness, will move with whatever silly pronouncement they make.

    That’s what got me started down this road. Some bond traders are betting that the FOMC will cease buying so many bonds if unemployment improves, hence they are selling and yields rising.

    But this fool in Tennessee don’t think it makes any more difference than whether somebody shoots you with a .45 caliber M1911 pistol or a .40 caliber Glock. Unemployment up or unemployment down, the Fed will keep flooding the market with new dollars. Their ideological Keynesianism limits them to that one response.

    US dollar index lost 21.1 basis points (0.27%) to end at 79.556. Meanwhile the Euro rose 0.3% to $1.3494, and continues to paint a chart that looks like an island reversal topped at $1.3500. Won’t last long if that’s what it is. Yen fell a nothing 0.05% to 110.21 cents/Y100. May have bottomed.

    Nothing much happened today beyond the foreseeable — Stocks fell, the silver and GOLD PRICE fell a little further, dollar was flat, and the other scabby fiat currencies as well.

    Friday (25 January) I somehow posted the wrong closes for the Dow and S&P500. Correct closes were Dow 13895.98 (up 70.65) and S&P500 at 1,502.96 (up 8.14). I have no idea how that error crept in. Please forgive me.

    The GOLD PRICE fell a little further, $3.70, to $1,652.90. Silver lost 42.4 cents to 3075.6.

    Today gold’s range touched the uptrend line from June ’12 and the downtrend line from the November 12 high. In fact, it touched them exactly where they crossed.

    Try to picture a falling wedge in your mind. Gold breaks out of that wedge about 2/3 of the way down, rallies to $1,698, then falls back, but (so far) only for a Kiss Back to the downtrend line it has just broken though upward.

    Frustrating as this is, it doesn’t point to a fall to the earth’s core, but rather, another rise. Worst hand raised against that is gold’s fall beneath its 200 day moving average on Friday. Needs to fix that quickly.

    The SILVER PRICE chart looks much the same. However, silver hasn’t kissed back all the way to that short term down trend line, and remains above its 200 DMA (3065c), but not by much. About 3045c tomorrow will lie the strong uptrend line from the June ’12 low.

    I was going back over some trades today from 2008 – 2009. I remember buying gold at $858 with my heart in my mouth in December. In May 2009 I was still nervous at 978.50, but bought anyway. And in November 2009, 17.098 silver looked awfully risky, but still I bought. Point is, markets always look risky, and exactly the right time to buy is the time your mind, body, and intestines will scream loudest. And sometimes, they’re right.

    Life comes with no guarantees, unless you are a slave.

    Stocks dropped, the Dow at 13,881.93 down 14.05 (0.1%) and the S&P500 down 2.78 (0.18%) at 1,500.18. Only 4 or 5 times in the last 10 years have stocks been more highly oversold. They stand at their upper trendline resistance. They’ve sketched out a massive head and shoulders top that stretches back to 1996, and they’ve both lately reached the point of rising wedge formations.

    Sure, maybe they can rise from here — but don’t bet on it.

    Dollar, yen, and euro were all flat today. US dollar index closed 79.804, basically unchanged from Friday. Euro fell a miniscule 0.07% to $1.3450, while the yen rose 0.07% to 110.17 cents/Y100.

    These gappy cahrts are hard to read. Euro gapped up on Friday, then traded in almost exactly the same range today, leaving a little isolated island up there. Must fill in that gap or advance sharply or it runs the risk of breaking down.

    Be certain the world’s big central bankers are furious with the Japanese and their competitive devaluation. They don’t know much, but they remember the currency wars of the 1930s and would like to avoid them.

    I found out something unusual about my new book, At Home in Dogwood Mudhole. People keep writing me that they’re reading the book outloud with wife or husband, or reading it to their children. One of my sons has been reading it to his two boys, Gus (6) and Felix (4). Thinking, I reckon, on something he had heard at school, he stopped my son Christian while he was reading and asked, “Dad, were Mama Sue and Big Daddy alive in colonial times?” I didn’t know we looked THAT old.

    Y’all can still get copies of AHIDM at www.dogwoodmudhole.com.
