Quick Update

Fri, Jul 22, 2011 - 10:41am

With the metals moving so nicely this morning, I figured I'd better give you some levels to watch.

First up, gold looks stronger than mustard gas again as it looks to be ready to tackle the highs from overnight Tuesday. Needless to say, a close through and above 1610 would be a very positive development for next week. Silver is similar. I have a last of 40.17 and, though it may run into some selling between 40.30 and 40.40, looks poised to tackle 41. Keep in mind, Fridays on the Globex have been very good to us lately. The metals have consistently added gains after the close, primarily in response to the release of the weekly CoT numbers. Why should today be any different? Though silver may only creep higher during the Comex hours, do not be surprised if it adds to its gains this afternoon and finishes the week somewhere near the highs of Tuesday. (Disclaimer: Of course, if the Republocrats and O'bottom announce some BS debt ceiling deal, all bets are off for today. As we've seen twice this week, once WOPR takes over, you can throw the fundos and TA out the window.)

Lastly, here's an updated chart of Pigatha. Yesterday's action did some serious damage to the short-term bull position. Again, a declining dollar will almost always help support the PMs.

That's it for now. I hope to have more for you this afternoon. TF

Beach Ball

Those dips are getting shorter and shorter. I love the "like holding a beach ball under water" analogy. Really makes me wonder where gold could go (and silver) if the pressure from above suddenly disappeared. I sure would like to find out!!

Can someone point me to a free Options ticker? Thanks in advance.

Gold fix

New all time high London PM fix @ $1602.

Rock on metal heads!

Coloured charts=)

Here's my view on the dollar and gold:

The USDX has broken below its supporting trend line for the past two and a half months, which indicates a reversal down to support at 73. Indicators have turned bearish.

Gold has, as expected, taken a breather around the $1600 mark, and hopefully it can hold the $1575-1580 support. If it does, we can look forward to a recapture of $1600 and some real fireworks shortly! Would it break below, the next stout support is to be found around $1550.

Foe those of us who are not

Foe those of us who are not enlightened could you please explain the meaning of "WOPR?" It is not listed in the "Turdisms." Thank you. [Edited: Oops. I see that while I was composing this, someone answered the question above.]

Slave master has spoken

How about these comments from the Greek slave master:

"The package "creates a sustainable path for Greece ... a lightening of the burden on the Greek people," said Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou. Greece has debts of 350 billion euros ($500 billion) or about 160 per cent of GDP."

"The only thing we're asking for is the right to make deep changes in our country to make our country a viable one, one of growth and jobs creation. This is a European success, a European package."

New Idea for Turd --- to bring more eys to your site

Hi Turd,

You should have your high priced technical team create a USD to Silver to Gold widget. (widget = html code we can cut and paste into craigslist postings,ebay, and other forums)

Say I am selling a used bike on craigslist for $300 usd fiat.

It would be great to add some html code that would display the 300 usd in silver oz and gold oz, thus allowing the sale to take place in USD, Silver, or Gold. The widget would also link everyone to your site for continued education.

Just a thought...

Have a fantastic weekend.

It would be unlikely to see Gold explode upwards into OE. Normally it would sell down into it. But then that means lots of shorts to cover and Turk's forecast of a quick move up would then fulfill. Important to be ready for either eventuality. Very tricky. Turk does have a close eye on pent up physical demand and can at times be uncanny in his work. I think if we hold these levels alone then a rocket blast is due for mid next week once OE Racketeering is ended. Just my opinion and its free so please read with maximum caution and a good sense of humor.

CitiTurd coming out for $100 Silver? Sounds like some disunion amongst the Illuminati.

Another great contrary indicator. When that guy says to sell, everyone knows to buy.

Does HKMEX Influence Citi's Call?

Maybe Citi knows the monopolistic, criminal manipulation of the Comex is over now that there is an alternative? I refuse to beliieve that there is not insider info. So, today ought to be interesting.

And Hillary has the stones to say

that Syria's Mr. Assad is illegitimate??? Now THAT is rich.

To her credit she said the same about Obummer. In his case, no argument. 'Course, that was before she was instructed to knuckle under and got this peachy keen State gig in return. She gets to wear stuff like this I guess.

@ Silverwealth

Re: taking you to war

I was watching NBC Nightly news last evening to get my latest misinformation. They did a very heart wrenching story about a major famine that is going on in Somalia and Kenya. It is effecting millions of people with starvation. I feel for these poor souls but why are we just hearing about it now? It has been going on for months. Of course Somalia has been going through a civil war between the north and south, fighting over the their oil.

Don't be surprised when the good ole USA has to come to the rescue of the starving Somali's.

Like Celente says, I don't think we would care if they were raising broccoli. Also, being on the Horn of Africa there is quite good access to the Arabian Sea, Saudi oil fields and Iran.

Just sayin'

Cotton Granny

Granny is back down at the auction house buying BAL at discount again today. Its off its recent highs by 50%.

What is perhaps more undervalued than gold stocks at this juncture? Nobody likes a discount I know. But just remember. Sugar was at big,big discount one month ago.

Who knows?

That 'Secretary of State' is pretty unflattering. What a joke these cons and sociopaths are. They travel everywhere first class and red carpet. The synchophants in the press follow them like flies on shite and most of them are clueless scammers. This woman failed her law tests several times before final passage. Ever heard her speak? She sounds like she is plugged right into a Borg Hive Monitor. It costs millions, literally millions a year just to service this idiots travels and entourage.
