I'd really like to buy some more physical silver down here but the premiums have skyrocketed. Silver eagles actually cost more now than they did a week ago when the spot price was $0.50 higher. Just another form of the big guys rigging the system against us little guys?
Well, it's going to get interesting when someone asks a Muslim baker to bake a cake with an image of Mohammad on top. Heck, if I knew a Muslim bakery I might even make the request myself just to see if the progressives are willing to hold the standard to all.
I'm no TA expert, but it sure looks to me like silver has developed a fairly hard floor at about 15.55. I'm on my iPad and can't paste a pic but check out this one year chart:
Quite a ride we are having in silver over the past 48 hrs. I'm a buyer at these levels but the volatility is pretty scary. Seems to me like the tug of war is setting things up for a big move one way or the other. I hope to read Dave's and JimH's take on this soon.
I'm curious. You said trouble with Greek debt might push gold higher but not silver. What led you to that conclusion? They generally move in tandem and the gold:silver ratio is already historically high.
I retired from the USAF in 2011. Large-scale exercises are common place. Training outside of military installations was not common but not unheard of, either. However, large-scale, multi-state CONUS training exercises, taking place in civilian neighborhoods, while military personnel wear civilian clothes and drive civilian vehicles, is something I've never heard of before now. And I certainly don't like the sound of it.
I know Dave is primarily a technical analysis type but from a fundamental pov, the drop could have been related to the Swiss gold referendum failing today. Maybe some big money thought to take advantage of that, got what they could and then covered?
Dave has taken a bit of a beating lately so I just wanted to say thanks to him for providing his frequent, educated, and FREE insights. I read them regularly and appreciate them even if it is not what I want to hear.
That said, I'm appreciative too for the contrasting viewpoints brought to the table by Jim et al. I love being able to come to one site and see both sides of an argument presented in a coherent manner.
John, that seems very difficult to believe after hearing reports that Duncan was vomiting uncontrollably as he was being wheeled out to the ambulance. I suppose it's possible but unlikely that his symptoms worsened dramatically in the seconds after being strapped to the gurney. But it seems to me that if no one in that apartment has contracted the virus it is either a miracle or it is being covered up.
Apparently Mr Duncan was still well enough at home to manage his own personal hygiene. When the patient is no longer able to toilet themselves the risk to caregivers would seem to increase a great deal.
We're not at that point yet but I'm curious as to how others might make their decision to shelter-in-place. We live in a rural location and have enough preps to isolate ourselves for a few weeks. I've considered doing that if/when there is a diagnosed case within 100 miles of me but that's just a round, arbitrary number. Anyone have a more analytic approach?
