    Today silver and GOLD PRICES gave back all Friday’s gains. The gold price shrank $11 to $1203.10 while the silver price faded 43.2 cents to 1958.1c. The GOLD PRICE continues to dance around and now below an internal resistance/support line from the April low, while it remains above the downtrend line from the May high. Main point to observe is that it has not yet given any solid signal of turning up. Absent a close above $1,220 expect more downside.

    The SILVER PRICE has the mildest of uptrends going, with double bottoms early in December and mid-December. Needs to stay above 1930c to maintain even that mediocre uptrend. A close over 2050c would signal an uptrend.

    We’re still walking through doll-house markets, so thin you could poke your finger through the walls. Dangerous to draw many conclusions from these.

    Dow made another new all-time closing high today, although not an intraday high. That came Friday at 16,529.01. Oddly enough, with the Dow closing up 25.88 at 16,504.29, all the other indices fell. S&P lost 0.33 or 0.02% to 1,841.07. That negates the chance for a key reversal in the Dow, but not in the S&P500.

    What can you say about markets climbing a wall? Stay out of their way. No telling where they will go or when they will break.

    Silver and gold prices were slapped silly today, so the Dow in Gold and Dow in Silver rose. DiG added 0.98% to 13.71 oz, a new high for the move. DiS didn’t quite make a new high, 841.41 oz against the last high at 841.56 oz. Both moved up and away from their 20 day moving averages, first tripwire of a downturn. I keep looking at these charts and seeing a near completed move, but there’s nothing to confirm that.

    Scabrous US dollar stabbed its fans in the back again today, falling 33 basis points (0.42%) to 80.17. It crumpled at the downtrend line like Count Dracula facing a crucifix. I keep on reading analysts calling for a higher dollar, but I can’t find anything here even as inspiring as drinking a cup of coffee and finding a drowned fly at the bottom. Worse, the Dollar Index has formed a falling triangle, and those most often break out to the downside.

    Euro tempered its excitement today and traded in a smaller range but with a higher close. Gained 0.37% to $1.3800, right on the downtrend line. Let’s see what happens when the Big Boys return on 2 January to scatter all these thin market chiselers.

    Yen rose a little today, about like frost heaving the ground over a grave. Up 0.4% to 95.13 cents/Y100. Only question is, what’s keeping it even that high?

    Ten year treasury yield closed at 2.976% today. Friday saw the highest interest rate since July 2011. Higher rates mean trouble for the Fed on the same scale as the La Brea tarpit for a saber-toothed tiger.

    On 30 December 1861 US banks suspended convertibility of their paper money into gold or silver. This was so much fun (for the banks) that it continued until 1879.

    Y’all think now. What other business, other than banking, could default on its most solemn contract yet remain in business? If any of the rest of us tried that, we’d go to jail, but now the bankers, our new nobility, are Too Big To Jail. In the US we have a very advanced legal system, with two complete sets of laws: one for the banks, then one for us peasants. Pass the gruel.

    The GOLD PRICE rose again today, $2.00 to $1,216.10. The SILVER PRICE rose 12.8 cents to 2001.3c.

    Now behold and consider. In June the gold price intraday low was 1179.40 but it never closed below $1,200. Silver’s June intraday low was 1817c, but its low close was 1853.3c.

    In December’s trading silver has made intraday lows at 1889c (early in the month) and at 1910c (six trading days ago). Low close has been 1914.3c.

    The GOLD PRICE December trading showed an early intraday low at $1,210.10 with a low 6 days ago at $1,186. Low close has been $1,195.40 with two closes below $1,200.

    All that is enough to paint a double bottom on the chart, but that needs confirming, like gold’s MACD gave a buy signal crossover today. Silver’s gave one on the 23rd. Rate of change is climbing out of the hole for both.

    But of course the ultimate confirmation is HIGHER PRICE. Silver must climb above its last high at 20.48, then 2100c resistance, and the last peak in October at 2309c.

    The gold price needs to scale its way clean to $1,267.50 December’s high, and beyond. It catches my eye that both Platinum and Palladium have jumped sharply and are at or near their 20 day moving averages.

    Silver and gold prices are lined up better than I’ve seen them in a long time. That may be an upside down head and shoulders forming in gold and a double bottom in silver. Confirmation! That’s what we need. Wait! Is this some of it? HUI and XAU gold stock indices have also turned up.

    Let’s see what happens when we return to full markets after the New Year holiday.

    Here’s a turn around: stronger week for metals than for stocks, although the Dow today broke a six day streak of new highs. US dollar lost ground as it continues vacillating between heaven and hell.

    Both the Dow and the S&P 500 painted the first half of a key reversal — new high for the move with a lower close. To complete the reversal that must be followed tomorrow by lower closes. After a six day streak of new highs, that’s not hard to imagine.

    What interests me more is this: the Dow in Gold and Dow in Silver are both FALLING against that backdrop of strong stocks. A few days ago they made new highs, 13.629 oz and 841.56 oz. Today they stand at 13.58 oz and 820.43 oz, and silver is hovering right above its 20 day moving average (816.10 oz). MACD has flashed a sell signal in DiS but not yet in DiG. Rate of Change in both have turned positive.

    Once again I remind y’all, I watch these sensitive indicators to pinpoint a turn in silver and gold early. They turned down this week, but will they confirm?

    US DOLLAR INDEX fell sharply today, 14 basis points (0.17%) to 80.50. Cut clean through its 20 and 50 DMAs (80.41 and 80.42) at one point and visited a low of 79.82, but recovered to close down only those 14 basis points. Maybe it was a light market today and the Europeans came back from the holiday full of Christmas cheer, but in any event, why can’t the dollar break through its downtrend line. Euro managed a huge gain, 0.42% to $1.3749, erasing the losses of the past three weeks. Could not hold at the $1.3800+ downtrend line, but touched it. Yen made a new low for the move at 95.10, down 0.35%.

    Y’all enjoy your weekend!
