USD Threatening a Breakdown

On the longer term charts the US dollar is threatening a breakdown to the low 90’s. If by the end of the month the dollar is down to 97 on the dollar index a further sell off is likely. The dollar is acting on its own recently and there are many factors why this could be happening.

    The May 10 candle in $gold was a big red flag to get out of gold.


    I agree with Gary Savage that gold should roll over here soon (maybe get to $1250 or so first, which is the 200 dma) and then plummet to mid to high 1100’s heading into the June FOMC. This is so predictable it isn’t funny.

          Trump Admits he Told Russia About Terror Plot on their Airline Flights & Schumer is OK with Innocent Peopl..Armstrong

          Trump has tweeted admitting that he had shared “facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety” with Russian diplomats in an Oval Office meeting last week. No matter what he does, they will try to make a controversy out of it. Trump was certainly not doing anything illegal and the info appears to have involved another attack on a Russian airliner. I suppose Schumer, Graham and McCain have no problem with innocent passengers getting killed as long as it makes for headlines against Trump. We are watching politics stoop lower than ever in history.
          What we are really looking at is the Democrats and the Republican elite have joined forces to do whatever it takes to keep the corruption flowing in Washington and to resist any economic reforms. This is trying to keep everything as is. That is the real battle ground.
          The real question will be the Congressional elections next year. It appears that the elite Republicans prefer that the Democrats gain seats to prevent any real “drain the swamp” measures if more anti-establishment come to Washington in 2018. I would rather see any Democrat than Lindsey Graham or John McCain.

    NO! They just double down, still attacking Trump.

    It’s time to really start investigating the Rich murder. BECAUSE, in all probability, IT WAS DEMOCRAT SCUM that arranged his MURDER.

    Canada: Passengers Can’t Be Removed From Overbooked Flights
    By ROB GILLIES – Associated Press – Tue May 16, 1:13PM CDT
    TORONTO (AP) — No one who has bought a ticket for a domestic or international flight in Canada will be allowed to be removed because of overbooking under a new passenger bill of rights, the transportation minister announced Tuesday.

    Minister Marc Garneau said the shoddy treatment of air passengers outlined in recent news reports will not be tolerated on any domestic flight as well as any flight leaving or arriving to Canada.

    He says said the rules would ensure “travelers are treated like people and not numbers.”

    The new regulation comes a month after cellphone video captured a passenger being dragged off a United Airlines flight in Chicago after he refused to leave his seat to accommodate airline crew members.

    Garneau said if airlines can’t get a volunteer with a minimum level of compensation, they will have to increase the amount offered.

    “When Canadians buy an airline ticket they expect the airline to keep its part of the deal,” he said.

    Minimum compensation standards would also be set for damaged baggage.

    Comey and the FBI had the computer of Seth Rich, according to his parents.

    Thus Comey (or FBI agents) KNEW the DNC email leak was via Seth Rich.

    WHY, then, did Comey remain silent, when the Russians were accused of hacking into DNC emails?
    Why did he, Comey, allow Trump to be associated with the Russian tampering with the election, when he, Comey, KNEW the culprit?

    The logical conclusion is very simple…….Comey favors the Democratic party.

    The large and steeply rising bull-to-date pitchfork has provided the support that gold needed recently:


    • On May 16, 2017 at 6:13 pm,
      Matthew says:

      Moving average and fork resistance starts at about 1247 tomorrow but gold technically looks like it will get through it. Nevertheless, that would be a good level at which to trim or hedge related positions if you’re nervous.


      • On May 16, 2017 at 8:15 pm,

        Matt, if the UDS really starts to do what Donald Dump wants it to, won’t gold rip higher as this happens? It sounds like this could be soon. So many quality pm stocks which are already a multi-month bottoms will rip big fast and hard.

          I would also add that should the FED NOT raise in June, USD gets smoked and PM’s rocket back up to last years high and possibly to Rick’s $1462 target.

          • On May 17, 2017 at 7:10 am,
            Matthew says:

            Gold rallied over 31% last year from its bear market low after the Fed raised for the first time in ten years. It then rallied 12% after last December’s hike and 8% following the March hike.

            Gold went up 25-fold in the 1970s and interest rates were rising the entire time. The dollar will weaken whether it weakens against other currencies or not. In other words, its purchasing power will continue to fall.

    Despite the corrective action that began last year, SIL is still worth 115% more SLV than it was at last years low. That’s bull market action.

    Another pathetic day for the miners on a day gold is up $20+. If that doesn’t scream sucker’s rally, I don’t know what would.

      Spanky, big gap-ups and resistance levels have conspired to blunt the miners’ performance today. Not only that, they’ve gotten ahead of themselves both in dollars and against gold. GDX was up 10.5% versus GLD this morning since I said that heavy accumulation was appropriate on May 4th.

      This is the 6th straight day higher for the miners, I think they’ve earned a break.
