It goes against all conventional wisdom for a gold dealer to caution investors on the price of gold and silver moving lower. There are literally trillions of reasons why the price of gold and silver will move higher in the years to come, including a multitude of unsustainable future government obligations. But from a short term perspective I have seen …Read More0
I had been cautioning gold investors that the U.S. dollar price of gold breaking to new highs needed a confirmation of the dollar index breaking to new lows. The fact that it didn’t even break the March 2008 lows of just under 72, let alone 74, showed there is still some perceived strength in the dollar and that a reversal was possible.Read More0

But now that everyone is talking about the dollar weakness again, as well as gold breaking to new highs, Geithner is stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. If he takes the strong dollar stance, it could kill the stock market rally, especially if the Fed increased interest rates. If he lets the dollar fall too much, there could be a rush for the exit with Japan and China leading the way. There is a reason why Obama chose this time to take his trip to China. The U.S. needs to maintain the U.S. Dollar’s world reserve currency status. It cannot afford to become a second rate nation. Something has to be done.Read More0
