Many of you know I continually say to watch the dollar for short term trading. For me, the pattern is as clear as day but naturally they don’t move in sync every day. But we are once again seeing stronger gold with a weaker dollar and close to a break to the $1,300 level that I have mentioned a few times in Current Thoughts as a possibility. The dollar is presently under 94.
Silver also is once again above $16 and this is a bullish sign. Yet we have been here before and it couldn’t get up to the $17 level so we have to see how much strength silver has in it and the dollar again is what to watch.
You’ll also notice that oil, another commodity is up too and this has pushed the stock market higher. Enjoy this while you can as it won’t last. Just let the dollar rebounding tell you when to abandon ship in these commodities.
