Your Fourth and Final Contest

So far, three contests and three winners. This last contest will be open all night and I'll review the guesses in the morning. Like the previous three, this contest ends when I post my regular morning update on Thursday.

First, though, a quick look at the charts. I don't want to spend much time on them, however, because they're so depressing and boring. Gold continues to be trapped under a descending trendline on the hourly chart. The only good news is that it's almost over. Soon, the lines will converge upon some serious support, first at 1810 and then at 1800. I'm still planning on the floor holding and launching gold higher by Friday or Monday. Silver has me a little nervous, at least in the short term. It is desperately trying to stay above the lower line of the channel it's been in since June. IF it breaks down, some stops will be triggered and you could see it move to 38 or so pretty quickly. Once again, however, total OI remains low so we can rightfully assume that silver is in some pretty strong hands. Any dip down toward 38 should be very short-lived and will present an excellent buying opportunity.

OK, onto our final contest. Traffic at this site has been very heavy since the day it opened in June. It dropped a little in July but has since gotten busier than ever. In our first 90 days, what is the total amount of pageviews? Not visitors. Not members. What is the total amount of individually loaded pages? Hint: The answer has two commas in it. I'm going to log into Google Analytics right after I post this so that I can get the official number. The Turdite with the closest guess by tomorrow morning U.S. time gets the last autographed yellow hat.

Good night and good luck.  TF

My best estimate.

3,000 people, 20 page views per day, times 90 days, plus extra mil.

My other guess was going to be 11,111,111. 

Oh well.

Found this News IQ Test on ZH

This was fun, and fast.  You may surprise yourself.  Free, nothing to sign up for, no personal information, just down and dirty.  I did it in about one minute.

http://pewresearch.org/politicalquiz/quiz/index.php

I was only surprised by one thing: how easy it was, and how poorly the rest of the participants did.  I struggle to grasp the reality that most people are just not clued in at all, but there it is, right there, confirmed.  It helps inform me to be patient with others, and be ready to teach and lead.

I bet everyone who reads this blog is in the top percentile, just saying . . .

Good luck everyone! Question for Turd. If we break through 1790-95, where we heading? 1700? 1650?

Also, Eric Sprott just announced he is moving from bullion into gold stocks, does that mean he believes we are heading lower temporarily?
