Despite the seemingly never-ending bear raids from you know who (space helmets on Captain Video), gold is once again positioned to challenge stiff resistance in the $1,800 area. Two consecutive closes above its 50-Day M.A. would do the trick IMHO
Obama Repeat Performance?
I’ve been hearing how good Obama was for the stock and bond market. Not surprised thanks to knowing much of the financial world are members of the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd. But here’s how major financial assets really did during the first go around?
Like I said right after the election, $2,000 gold is now cheap.
A Quote From Czech
This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
