    The GOLD PRICE bumped up after the FOMC announcement, but traded right back down. Closed Comex down $3.60 at 1,092.70. SILVER added 10.3 cents to $14.734.

    Welcome to limbo, where nothing is ever resolved and all decisions are avoided and all verbs in the passive so you can’t tell who’s acting. Still, there was no weakness in today’s silver and GOLD PRICE charts, and a spirited defense against an attempt to drive them down about noon.

    We’re stuck at the same place: the price of gold and silver must hold $1,090 and $14.40 and on the upside must hurdle over $1,100 and $15.00 to begin a rally, and $1,140 and $15.50 to prove one. Tomorrow?

    Do y’all know what a wonderful freedom it is to liberate yourself from hogwash? Think of all the goofs in the world who hang around their TV sets to see what are the latest words that drop like fetid liquid lard from the lips of Janet Yellen, believing their future depends on them. How utterly degrading, and how howlingly ridiculous! Mercy, Janet Yellen couldn’t run a Louisiana snow-cone stand at a profit in August! What’s the chance she and the rest of those Keynesian midgets will get the whole US economy right, let alone interest rates?

    Yet the mind control persists. Press conference after press conference, month after month, she says the same thing, and markets react — for a day or maybe two. Folks, the magic don’t work any more. She’s just a pitiful, flabby old woman pretending to be a Mistress of the Universe. I have better things to do than listen to that stuff. I’ve got a sock drawer that needs re-arranging.

    Dow climbed 121.12 (0.69%) to 17,751.39 on another veinful of government heroin, i.e., the Fed’s worn-out promise to raise interest rates some day, but not yet. S&P climbed 15.32 (0.73) to 2,108.57. Wow. Dow almost climbed through its 200 DMA.

    US dollar index scarfed up 21 basis points and closed at 97.08, barely above the 20 DMA. Euro dropped 0.69% to $1.0985 and the yen 0.23% to 80.68. Nothing happening there, dollar still riding the downdraft, despite today’s higher close.

    Y’all go home tonight and do something really important. Kiss your wife or husband and children and squeeze ’em and enjoy the presence of love and peace — and ignore blathering, lardy bureaucrats.

    AN UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY. The wholesale buy side premium on US 90% silver coin has risen so high that you can swap US 90% silver coin for 100 ounce silver bars and realize an 11% to 12.2% gain in silver ounces. Far as I know this is a “like-kind” exchange and so not taxable, but ask your own tax daddy about that because I don’t know sic-’em from come-here about no taxes. Be careful about doing this swap with any other dealer but us. I believe we are the only dealer in the country that charges commission on one side of the swap only, to increase your realized gain. Trade can also be done for one ounce silver rounds, with a slightly smaller gain.

    Warning: do not swap ALL of your 90% coin. Keep at least some of it because the higher premium may be a permanent structural change and not a transitory one. In other words, it may never get cheaper again. Call to inquire, (888) 218-9226

    Aurum et argentum comparenda sunt — — Gold and silver must be bought.

    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.
