Warming up to the idea FOMC hawkishness may be getting ahead of itself, precious metals reverse course. Gold's now up $26 from the overnight low, GLD +1%. SLV +0.7%. The dollar, however, continues to strengthen, UUP +0.3%.

    Or maybe GLD has been due for a bounce...

    Remember, you can get a dead cat to bounce if you throw it hard enough too.

    If you take the time to read this link you will understand that the demise of the US and it's economy is assured. There is no fix to the problems we face. The math just does not work under any proposed scenario. The government is buying time. Gold and silver are by historical nature our only hope as individuals. Just remember that our government needs to convince you that everything is fine. That they can fix the problem if we cooperate. Hold your Gold. Be strong.

    Excellent comments! I totally agree with your assessment. There's even more to the mix: Our 'government' is in collusion with billionaires worldwide who think they can control the planet. Their mistake, however, is not realizing the speed of our shrinking natural resources or, perhaps, their acknowledgment of it is driving them to madness so it seems these days. So a huge drop in gold also correlates with the huge drop in AAPL as these 'big guns' try to play their way into safe-haven positions if only temporary. The ride is wild beyond anyone's imagination.

    Hold your gold....Hold your gold. I believe in the "feel good" conspiracy. I do not think there is a plan. In fact I think the government is so inept that a plan is beyond them. We are looking into the abyss. And yet no one sees. Let the chips fall as they will without my comments. I wish everyone well.

    I know 2 congressmen and I can tell you they dont get it. I have tried and they get off on the Ron Paul thing and think we are all wacko. We can not continue down this path. There will come a day that no one wants to buy our bonds. I have 3 children and would like a good outcome for them. Unfortunately I am not encouraged at what I see.
