The measure calls for checks for Internet sales and those between private parties at gun shows, but not on non-commercial person-to-person deals. Stocks on watch today include Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Sturm, Ruger (RGR). [View news story]

  • Bank analyst Martin Weiss says the U.S. economy and stock market are going to get crushed in 2012. The gap between the super-rich and the other 99% of America is now as wide as it was before the 1929 crash.

  • Several sources say Italy has held preliminary talks with the IMF about financial aid, though no decisions have been made yet. A formal request for assistance, if there will be one at all, is unlikely to come before PM Monti presents his budget on Dec. 5.  [View news story]

  • The timing of the release of 60M barrels of oil is a puzzle: The war in Libya, the purported cause of the move, has been raging for months, and prices had already fallen ~10% since April. So why the release now? This isn't really about oil; it's the economy, stupid. Some see it as "a sign of desperation" with prices recovering after a few months.  [View news story]
    Did anybody notice the slide in WTI started about an hour prior to News Release?????

    Silver is the "Black Tulip"
