Gold strength still evident.
I got up this morning and fired up the computer since I have ExactPrice automatically load as the computer comes on, I was pleased to find that gold was doing well and had shown some strength in the overnight hours of the Asian and European markets.
And as I’ve been tracking it through the day it’s pretty clear that the strength has remained and silver is even doing a lot better.
Right now Gold is $1,649.90. Silver is $31.87. Platinum remains way below gold at $1,516.10 which is to me an indicator of how the industrial manufacturing is fairing in the economy today.
Here’s some stories for you.

Ed Steer had a host of good links and I’m stealing something he wrote in the wrap-up:
With virtually all the leveraged technical longs flushed out of all the precious metals in the Comex futures market, we just have to wait around for the next major rally to develop. And, as is always the case, it’s not the buyers coming in on the long side of the market that concerns me…it’s the entities taking the short side of the trade that will determine how far and how fast that prices rise….CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST….
