    Alas, today was not the day the GOLD PRICE burst the bonds of surly earth. Instead, it hit that downtrend line from the April 2013 high at $1,267.70 & fell back as low as $1,237.50. The GOLD PRICE shuttered the Comex $20 (1.64%) lighter at $1,242.20. Silver shucked 42.5 cents (2.18%) to 1911.1c. Today witnessed an 1897c low.

    Gold’s low took it to but not through its 50 DMA, and closed slightly below the uptrend line. This itself is not fatal, but the 12 day rate of changed went negative today, & the MACD might be rolling over downward.

    No way to predict what will happen here. Gold has been very strong, so the 50 DMA which in past months has acted as a barrier to stopping it might now support it. Or we might see lower prices still. I am watching the $1,210 line as the shoulder line of what might be a upside-down head & shoulders. As long as that $1,210 line at the top of the shoulders remains intact, the pattern remains valid & presages an upside breakout.

    The SILVER PRICE low at 1897c today shattered the little uptrend it had going, but stopped about where declines stopped through December at 1889c & 1910c. Remember the December intraday low came at 1872c, so that’s silver’s drop-dead line. MACD & RoC & RSI all point downward, I am sad to report.

    Not sure why, but I really don’t expect another waterfall out of silver & gold from here. Might be too big a natural born fool from Tennessee to see it coming.

    Well, I reckon the question we all ought to ask ourselves is, How big a sucker are you? In a world where most everything is staged for propaganda purposes, financial & political & cultural, we also have to ask, Is it real, or Memorex?

    Before I launch my boat upon the stormy sea of doped-up markets, I realized something spooky this morning as I was waking. On 22 & 23 January several stock market indices were making new all time highs. That was the day the Dow reiterated its non-confirmation by falling the second day in a row. On the 23rd its Niagara began.

    Why is that spooky? Because the Dow topped at 11,722 on 22 January 2000, before the rest of the indices topped in March. And because there was a stock market high in 2000, again in 2007, and now, seven years later, in 2014, exactly two times seven years from the 2000 top.

    Here’s another, smaller spook. Silver & gold bottomed on 28 June 2013, then again on 31 December 2013, right nearly six months to the day or halfway around the year from each other.

    But today the sun shone bright in Stockland again. Dow jumped up 109.82 (0.7%) to 15,848.61 & the S&P500, like a giant running its course, leapt 19.99 (1.13%) to 1,794.19.

    The raw numbers sound good until you look at the charts, Dow managed to climb back to support it had broken through, but no more. S&P500 remains way below its 1,812.60 50 DMA, ready to drop through a long term uptrend line. Sure, both indices might catch here, but they need to rise above their 50 DMAs to do that (1,812.60 & 16,153.57).

    Gold’s tumble today floated the Dow in Gold up a little, 2.76% to 12.76 oz (G$263.77 gold dollars). As yet that amounts to nothing but a tiny countertrend move in a very long downtrend.

    Dow in silver rose 3.72% to 828.64 oz, above its 20 and 50 DMAs (817.42 & 815.61). This is an iffier proposition, but needs to close above the 853.15 oz high on 31 December to disprove the downtrend.

    US Dollar index, hideous spawn of central banking, rose today 53 basis points (0.66%) to 81.19. This takes it out of immediate danger of visiting the earth’s magma core, but not much more. It is trying to turn up again to validate its sluggish uptrend. Did close above the 20 & 50 day moving averages, which at least turns momentum up.

    Euro, hideous spawn of central banking & eurocratic bureaucratic tyranny, gapped down below all its moving averages, proving its downtrend once again. Plunged 0.79% to $1.3556. Hope the euro has packed its parachute.

    Yen, hideous spawn of central banking & corporatism, fell back 0.49% to 97.21, but remains above its 20 & 50 DMAs & in an uptrend. Why, I can’t imagine, since the Japanese Nice Government Men stand ready to stab anybody in the back who trusts a rising yen.

    The GOLD PRICE was pushed up today. Comex closed up $11.40 (0.9%) at $1,262.20. Silver lagged badly, rising only 5 cents to 1953.3c.

    Yesterday the gold price fell back to support at $1,250.80, and today rebounded like a trampoline champ. That validated $1,250 support. In the aftermarket gold has pushed through the $1,267.50 December high, but not enough to call it a breakout.

    The GOLD PRICE is pounding at the door of that downtrend line from April, but pounding isn’t breaking down. Strength shown so far whispers it will break through tomorrow, but if not, it can fall back as far as $1,210 without changing the outlook. All indicators I watch are pointing up, and I expect to see higher gold soon.

    The SILVER PRICE since early December has formed a rising flat topped triangle with the base or top at about 2050c, and a slowly rising hypotenuse beginning at 1889c through 1910c through 1931c and now today at a 1945c low. This line was broken only once, by the plunge on 31 December 20 1872, but that was an intraday low and silver never closed below that hypotenuse.

    Silver stands below its 20 and 50 DMAs (1984 and 1992). It has dithered two months trading sideways. Two days ago the MACD flashed a Sell.

    This picture must clear, or threaten gold’s performance. Related markets can disagree for a day or two, but past three it begins to look like a family argument where somebody’s fixin’ to take out a knife and go to cuttin’.

    To confirm a rally, the gold price must close above $1,267.50 and silver must hop aboard and climb over 2050c. It’s very rare that gold will stage a rally all on its own. Possible, but infrequent.

    One thing about us nacheral born fools from Tennessee, I ain’t crafty enough to lie when I’m caught out wrong and make out like I was saying the other thing all along. I’ll just out and admit it, I was wrong. The scummy criminals at the Fed did taper after all. In the FOMC’s statement today — Bernanke’s swan song — the Fed said it would reduce its securities purchase by $10 bn total, knocking $5 bn of its present $40 bn monthly US Treasury bond buying and $5 bn from its $35 bn Mortgage Backed Securities purchases.

    But the Fed also promised it would hold interest rates near zero until unemployment dipped below 6.5%, or ’till hell freezes over with Gatorade, whichever comes first (I snuck in that last part on my own. They didn’t really say that). Here are the really gut-bustin’ hilarious gems from the FOMC statement:

    ** the economy is improving.

    ** “The committee recognizes that inflation persistently below its 2% objective could pose risks to economic performance.” (This is loony from the standpoint of protecting the dollar’s purchasing power, which is why y’all don’t understand it, because the Fed doesn’t give 2 hoots and a holler about the dollar’s purchasing power. That ain’t their job. Their job is to keep all y’all BELIEVING they aim to protect the dollar. And it’s genrlly working.)

    ** “The Committee today reaffirmed its view that a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the asset purchase program ends and the economic recovery strengthens.” Translation: we are going to continue to create new money at the same rate as far as we can see into the future.

    And how did the stock market take the news that the Fed is jerking the punch bowl? Not calmly. Dow plunged another 189.77 points (1.19%) to 15,738.79. Scorecard: Dow has lost 676.53 (4.1%) in the last seven trading days. S&P500 today peeled off 18.3 (1.02%) to perch on 1,774.20.

    Clearly the Fed is playing “chicken” with the stock market.

    Where doth that leave us? The Dow has crashed back below the upper channel line that it threw over (rose above) in November, and reached its last low (15,703.79 in December) matched with a September peak at $1,5709.58. If the Dow punctures this support, next obvious stopping point is the 200 DMA now at 15,454.71. No indicator gives a sign of an upturn yet. S&P500 looks no better.

    Meanwhile the Dow in Gold is cascading over the rocks. Closed today down 2.5% at 12.42 oz (G$256.74 gold dollars). All moving averages are in downward alignment, and the next to be struck is the 200 at 11.76 (G$243.10).

    Thanks to silver’s recent lethargy, the Dow in Silver has not dropped as dramatically. Today it lost 2.18% to end at 798.92 oz, and stands below its 20 and 50 DMA (814.41 oz), and it’s outside its upward trading channel. Gravity is calling.

    Since the Fed pulled the plug on its stock support today, I reckon investor’s appetite for risk has been trimmed. That showed up in rising bond prices/falling ten year T-note yield. It dropped 2.59% to 2.675%.

    Yesterday the GOLD PRICE closed Comex only 90 cents lower but in the aftermarket lost another $10. That showed up today at the Comex close, lower by $12.60 to $1,250.80, about 1% lower than yesterday. Yet as I said, most of that loss had already showed yesterday. Unlike recent months, gold did not follow through yesterday’s weakness.

    The GOLD PRICE hesitation here is easily explained: it is bumping against the downtrend line from April 2013. Thus Friday it couldn’t get through the $1,267.50 December high, though it came so close. Nothing is out of order here, but the gold price might drop back to its 50 DMA at $1,238.04. Further drop would call its intentions into question. However, the Fed’s mumblings tomorrow might derail gold for a while. Just no telling how the market will take their words.

    The SILVER PRICE casts the only gloom over this brightening precious metals picture. It lost 28.8 cents (1.5%) today to end at 1948.3c. Remember that on Friday silver’s weakness gainsaid gold’s strength. Worse, platinum and palladium are falling, too. Copper has fallen back to its 200 DMA.

    So the situation is unclear, and will remain so until the FOMC shoots tomorrow. My gut and the trends in place say, regardless what the Fed intones, stocks will continue lower and gold will keep climbing, even pulling silver up. Dow would have to beat 1,500 to change that outlook, and the gold price would have to drop below $1,210

    Now if I wanted to put millions of people back to work in America, the very first thing I would do is– raise wages 39%! Yes, socialist moronism now reigns supreme in Washington, where His Federal Highness, Bernard O’Bama, is decreeing today that all those federal government contractors now paying their minimum wage folks $7.25/hr must raise them to $10.10. This will prompt those employers to look at their payrolls, scratch their heads, and fire the lot of them, as they cannot afford to raise them 39%.

    Thus Bernard, our first communist president, will manage to throw countless thousands out of work. Between him and the Fed, it’s a job to figure out who is stupidest.

    Speaking of the Fed, its long, twisted shadow hangs over markets this week because the FOMC has another meeting tomorrow. Chances are Yellow Janet will be terrified by the stock market waterfall cascading over the headlines and put The Mythical Taper in the dame class with the Easter Bunny, Sasquatch, and Santa Claus, announcing that money creation (and its floor under Wall Street) will continue on, world without end.

    I have to leave early today, and am writing this just before the stock market closes, but I’ll include closing prices below.

    Stocks are in big trouble, although it’s not clear yet whether this is merely a correction, or we have seen the ultimate top. For now, I’ll opt for a severe correction into February, with the ultimate top later this year, subject to changing my mind at the drop of an index.

    Stocks have been flashing all sorts of portents through January, mostly with the Dow refusing to join the party. Right now the Dow stands up 94.44 at 15,932.32, up 0.6% on the day, but in truth doing no more than a dead cat does when thrown from a three story building. The bounce signifyeth not life. S&P has managed to climb 10.93 (0.61%) to 1,792.49, but other indices are down slightly.

    Stocks are in such trouble that it’s a fair bet that whatever comes out of the FOMC meeting tomorrow, it will contain fat meat for stocks. Ergo, no taper.

    Dow in Gold has fallen clean out of the trading channel and made half the journey from the 50 DMA (13.06 oz) to the 200 DMA (11.74 oz). DiG stands now at 12.73 oz (G$263.08 gold dollars). Dow in Silver hasn’t been so rambunctious but at 817.75 oz has quite broken below its 50 DMA (812.76 oz).

    US Dollar index has gone flat last two days, and is unlikely to move today, waiting for the Fed’s Delphic Oracle to predict the future.
