    He gave me a link to an article he wrote and I believe he stated $2500. I will try to find the link.

    I believe AVI is calling for $2500 gold for next year BUT did call this sell off... Although I have made fun of his articles here I do so in jest. Him and I are from the same area and have PM'D each other.

    I have no clue of Elliott waves or those who "claim" they can read charts. I just look at world events and cannot see why the markets are so high. Some feel that the QE'S have nothing to do with it.

    I am in the camp that you can goose the numbers for a while, and can claim a short term victory. But let's see what happens when interest rates finally are allowed the freedom they are suppose to have.

    Then I assume we will get back to what the markets should be. Free from manipulation, tinkering, whatever term suits you. As I get older I question things more. I never felt comfortable with what Bernanke did. He might have saved us initially from a depression. But did he make it actually worse ??

    Nine week streak marks longest dollar rally in 17 years !!!!

    The last time the greenback climbed for nine consecutive weeks was from Dec. 1996-Feb. 1997, and Morgan Stanley sees next week's Fed meeting as a catalyst for more gains should forward guidance tilt a little less dovish.

    The reason for the dollar strength is no secret: U.S. growth is outpacing that of most of the rest of the world, and the Fed is talking rate hikes, while central banks in Europe and Japan are figuring how to ease policy even more (though the Bank of England is also on course for rate hikes).

    Previously: BofA moves up forecast of first rate hike by 3 months

    The PowerShares U.S. Dollar Index Bull ETF (NYSEARCA:UUP) is higher by about 6% since the streak began.

    AGAIN I ASK, DO YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE INVESTING IN TODAY'S MARKET ???

    SO THE DOLLAR IS STRONGER YET THE MARKETS ARE SELLING OFF, WHY?

    Here is my take. The world's economies are all sick right now , so everyone runs to America. Eventually this catches up as companies bottom lines will be effected since most companies are international.

    Right now it is tantamount to walking into a bar only to see every women there just attended a Weight Watchers seminar. You pick out the nicest looking one !!

    I might just sit alone at the bar and wait for another night...

    It's taken less than two weeks in September to erase all of the summer's big gains in long-term Treasury prices. Today's five basis point jump in the 10-year yield to 2.60% brings it above the level it was at just after the Memorial Day weekend.

    If Europe led yields south during the summer, it's leading them north now, with the German 10-year Bund yield up another five basis points to 1.05% after sinking to below 0.9% two weeks ago. Italian, Spanish, and British yields are sharply higher as well (though all three countries sport 10-year rates lower than the U.S.).

    Is this the start of a trend or just a blip ?????

    I always appreciate you stopping by. Looking forward to reading that article. You deserve the best, and hope you still stop by from time to time.

    At least let us know when your book is done.

    If you go back one chapter a poster named EPPS has asked a few questions pertaining to physical and GLD, SLV. I already suggested to the poster to read your article.

    Would you mind looking back at his comments and dropping a comment about his concerns? I would appreciate it. Include some of your links to help answer it if needed too.

    Thanks!

    EPP

    I am of the opinion of avoiding SLV and GLD for a long term hold. They can be used as a trading vehicle but if you ever read the prospectus of them you would run for the hills.

    I BELIVE IF YOU CAN'T TOUCH IT YOU DON'T OWN IT !

    So If you believe that the price is right for you I would buy physical. I know the premium over spot at my coin dealer is low right now as many are selling and few are buying. I cannot suggest when a good time to buy it is however. I don't know your timeframe or plans for owning it.

    But from what I read of your post you are seeking insurance for a "dollar crash" which is why I own mine as well. I don't plan on selling it. That is why any paper trade doesn't make sense.

    I did post in the next chapter an article from an Author named Doug who stops by here from time to time. I suggest reading it and ALSO the comments. Avi , whom many agree with, suggests that 2015 is going to be the year of the Grim Reaper for the dollar.

    Worth reading that article. If you jump to the next chapter, the link is below, take a read. As well as a few other articles I posted.

    Good Luck with your decision. I do feel silver is on sale at the price today, gold can drop lower but if your reason is a long term hold as insurance then I would consider buying some doing "dollar cost averaging monthly" if you decide to purchase it.

  • The Dollar Has Not Crashed Like Gold Bulls Thought It Would [View article]
    DOUG

    Another spot on article. You have been right about the dollar. Now why do you think 2015 is the magical year for the dollar to collapse and the metals to rise?

    Been holding physical a long time, as insurance, but am confused with the recent drop in both gold and silver.

    My blog has many posts about the US losing it's worlds currency status. Think that is possible with the rest of the world seemingly in worse shape then us ?

    BTW.. Stop in for a comment when you have time..
