Gold breaks through key resistance levels and Euro delivers breakthrough solution?

A solution? Yeah, right. Sure. May I ask where the money is coming from for this so called solution? It’s almost like a gambling addict – I just need to play it and hit the big numbers which will fall out of the sky so I can live high and dry.

I don’t think it works that way.

Apparently gold doesn’t think that is the way it works either as on this news it has gone through the $1,720 resistance level and right now the ExactPrice widget on my desktop is showing $1,729.40 as the spot price. Silver is looking pretty good too with a spot of $34.39.

What continues to surprise me is that platinum has been lagging gold now for a long while now. That is very curious to me and I can’t help but wonder if this continues if it signals the launching of gold into the stratosphere. Certainly others wiser than I are looking at the correlation. Check out the two charts I’ve included here that compares the performance of gold and platinum. The first chart is from January 2011 to now. The second looks way back to 1999. Notice the areas where gold out performs platinum. This latest is a break out in my mind. Draw you’re own conclusions but feel free to share them with me.

Why is the gold market manipulated by Western central banks?

It’s because gold is a weapon more powerful than nuclear weapons — an alternative currency that is not necessarily under any government’s power, a determinant of the value of other currencies, interest rates, government bonds, and equities.

Those are the stories I’ve got for you today. Tomorrow is Friday, oh, and I just happened to think, we’ve just gone through options expiration for November. And we’re up.

Until next time.

      We’re definitely going to be waiting some. But I’m of the opinion it that we probably won’t have to wait too long.
