Gold breaks the $1,300 ceiling.
It was for just a little while in the early morning hours (eastern standard time) but hey, gold broke through. Last night I had a feeling it would. When I checked the real time tracking app before calling it a night, it was with in spitting distance and firming up for a run.
Right now the spot price is $1,296.70. So it didn’t lose much through out the day, the selling off was expected when it cracked the ceiling.
The real race horse today though looks to be silver gaining a 30 year high. Silver has been showing a lot of strength and is attempting a run at $21.50. At the moment it’s at $21.46.
Options Expiration next week should prove interesting, I think.
I don’t have a lot of links to share today, but what I have is worth your time.

Gold may be screaming more about a general mistrust of the securities markets than about the prospect of rising prices.

Silver ran past its peak from early 2008 notching a 30 year high in the process which is simply breathtaking for the speed of its ascent. Should it be able to post a strong close above $21.50, look for it to make a runs towards $23. It has light chart support near $21 and better support back near $20.50 on the charts.
That’s it for this week. See on the flip side.
