    But in US dollar terms, silver and GOLD PRICES slumbered the day away. Comex gold price lost $3.50 (0.3%) to $1,198, swinging again below $1,200, but not much. Silver lost 7/10 of one cent to $16.276.

    Gold Price

    The GOLD PRICE has a tee-tiny uptrend running, and has climbed over its 50 & 20 DMAs. But when I step back from the chart and look at the last 16 months, I see what looks like a double bottom, Nov. ’14 – March ’15, or you might call it a rounding bottom. I’ve tried to draw it for you on this chart, where the bowl’s lip stands about $1,345. Gold price chart on the left.

    Here’s an example how a fresh perspective can add useful information. I mentioned to y’all yesterday that the Gold/US dollar index spread (measuring gold by the US dollar index instead of the US dollar) showed an even-sided triangle about to break out to the upside. Today gold cracked that downtrend line and closed plumb on the upper boundary. Every indicator screams this rally will continue. Y’all go look at the chart for yourselves on the right.

    Silver/US dollar index spread also has an even-sided triangle, but has not matured as much as the Gold/USD spread. But it did cross an important internal resistance line today, and is fixin’ to cross its intertwined 20 & 50 DMAs. All indicators also point up.

    Tomorrow is critical for the gold price. Can it climb back through that uptrend line from the March low, or not? That will take a close above $1,210.

    The SILVER PRICE keeps poking its head higher every day, but can’t hold on there. Stasis can’t last forever.

    Time, however, is working for gold & silver & against the dollar & stocks. Not much longer now until we can call an end to this long correction.

    I wonder how many Americans understand that many of their senators & congressman work for somebody other than their electoral constituents? I have to wonder that when I read that both a senate & congressional committee approved a bill to give Obama fast-track authority to push new globalist trade deals through congress. Never mind the delegation of congressional authority to the executive, destroying the constitutional separation of powers. The deal would authorize the president to cut new trade deals with Asia & Europe involving about 2/3 of the world’s economy. What reveals the fix is in? Numerous committee members didn’t even know the bill was coming up for a vote. Shades of passing the Federal Reserve Act on 23 December 1913, when nobody was home in congress.

    Hey, it takes a globe to suck the village dry!

    Meanwhile, back at the already-struggling-under-the-chains-of-central-banking US economy, things ain’t peachy. Somebody broke a whiskey bottle over the dollar’s head, stocks can hardly stand, & confusion reigns. Them globalists sure know how to run an economy. If they’re doing this well with the US, what WILL they do with the entire globe?

    Stocks chopped up and down but all indices ended lower. If not much lower, well, not higher, either.

    Dow lost 6.84 (0.4%) to 18,105.77 and the S&P500 shaved off 1.65 (0.08%) to close at 2,104.99. Yesterday on small gains both indices had poked their heads (intraday) through overhead downtrend lines. Today the pulled them back in. Bleeding will become profuse when Dow closes below 17,620 & S&P500 below 2,030. Yeah, yeah, I know, they’re nowhere near there. Jes’ watch.

    Out of the Dow in metals today cam only meaningless jiggles that change naught.

    US Dollar

    Mercy! That US dollar index plumb fell off a limb! Lost 73 basis points (0.74%), punched through the 20 DMA (98.26) and came to rest at 97.79. Fast puking back those gains it gobbled on the way up a week ago. Now has the feeling of a parabolic rise un-rising: faster than they rise, they fall.

    If I had an electron microscope, I could hardly find anything edifying on the euro chart. It did climb up today & poke its noggin into the 20 DMA (1.0725), but couldn’t close above it. Gained 0.73% to $1.0766. Probably it has posted a double bottom, March & April but as yet has neither affirmed nor denied.

    Keeping its head down so’s not to attract attention, yen today gained 0.8% to 84.00.

    West Texas Intermediate Crude validated yesterday’s breakout by climbing another 1.36% today to $56.71/barrel. Ought to rally nearly to $70.

    In another inflation market, copper may be forming a bull flag, ready for another little rally that will take it above its 200 DMA. Warms my gold & silver loving heart to see copper getting in the blocks to run.

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