    Doc, what do you think of Auryn here? It has had a few big drops recently.

      It’s at a couple of supports at the moment — let’s see how it finishes the week.
      There are positive divergences since it became weekly oversold in December.

      *I do not own it.

      Snowy, I would say Auryn has at least another week of pain (maybe 2). I’ve been waiting for this stock to settle down here and it looks like I’ll be purchasing in the not distant future (not investment advice).

    So the FED/ECB/& BOJ are having their meetings over a period of three days , big deal.
    The chances are they have allready spoken to each other & have agreed to do whatever they do will benefit them, & not us plebs. These banks are broke & will do whatever to save themselfs…Inflation!!! well thats running away from them in the form of highter prices on goods & services that we the plebs need everyday, & not forgetting shrinkflation……2-3 % inflation…Dont make me laugh.

      They will do whatever it takes to pump credit into the system while keeping a lid on commodities and bond yields for as long as they can.

    Arguably the BoJ’s decision on Friday is more important for gold than the FOMC’s.

      Thanks Chartster, will read.

      Since there are no politics threads lately, I’ll make this the politics subthread.

      Doesn’t get much shorter and sweeter than this:

      by: “Ambassador Andrew I. Killgore is the publisher of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and a retired diplomat who served as a career foreign service officer in Frankfurt, London, Beirut, Jerusalem, Amman, Baghdad, Dacca, Tehran, Manama, and Wellington and as a desk officer in other Near East and South Asia regional bureau positions in the State Department in Washington before his assignment as U.S. Ambassador in Doha. Ambassador Killgore received the “Foreign Service Cup” in 1997, the citation stating: “For impressive contributions to increased awareness and understanding of the Middle East and the many dimensions of United States’ interests in the area.” “

          Killgore: “Alison Weir must be highly commended for throwing such a brilliantly hard light on the relationship between the United States and Israel. I hope this marvelous book gets all the attention it deserves.”

    I’ll say it again. The 50 WMA crossing below the 100 WMA for pretty much every mining stock is a terrible sign.

    going back 30 or 40 years, pretty much every time that has happened it both those MAs proceed to cross below the 200 WMA.

    What this means is that there is a very very high likelihood that the miners will be headed lower over the next year.

    That being said, it’s possible that we could get a sucker’s rally back to the now downward sloping100 WMAs. My bearish outlook will only be proven wrong if price rockets well past the 100 WMA for a couple of months, or the 50 WMA manages to cross back above the 100 WMA.
