Expanding money supply –&gt; softer prices. That said, the fundamental prices of both metals—a calculation we make every day—has been rising since Nov 26. So far, the listening and talking of Powell has not pushed the fundamentals down. Though it should be noted that the gold fundamental is just recovering to its range from 2017. And the silver fundamental is almost back to prior levels.

What constitutes a reasonable question in silver? I would define questions to be reasonable if they encompass occurrences known to be unprecedented either in silver or in any other market and in which the questions have been repeatedly asked, yet remain unanswered. To be sure, there are several such unanswered questions in silver that date back as long as a decade; each one of which stands out in terms of potential significance, but taken together point to something being seriously out of kilter in the silver market. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, January 10th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: #000000;">Reasonable questions should be answered reasonably.

And it was interesting that the announcement was made the first business day of the year. … Being the sort-of cynic and/or skeptic that I am, I said, ‘Well, I wonder what would have happened if that announcement had been made in mid-December? … Had they made that announcement while stocks were plunging, it might have put the nail right in the coffin.” </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, January 4th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-indent: .25in; line-height: 120%; tab-stops: .5in 1.0in 1.5in 2.0in 2.5in 3.0in;"><span style="color: #000000;">Happy New Year!

Since it has arrived at resistance at its falling 200-day moving average it is entitled to take a rest here, if it feels so inclined, and consolidate or perhaps react back a little. This breakout bodes well for the longer-term and may well be the opening shot of a major bullmarket. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, December 31st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">The last update was wrong.
