Anyone else notice the ups and downs today? What are yall thinking will happen, if anything, next Tues/Wed?

As I said before, not sure if it was here or someone else...I think the BS will carry us through to yet another deadline and it'll continue until an entity outside of our government puts an end to it.

Something I'm surprised at is that we have not seen another margin increase recently.

What's silver running these days?

I got two silver 50 cent coins in my draw a couple weeks ago and sold them for twenty bucks

There's almost $30.00 worth of silver in them, if they were pre '65. If 65-70, you ripped him off...

Read today that the average house now costs 103 oz of gold. The long term average is 201 oz. Check out the chart on this page.

http://wallstcheatsheet.com/stocks/s...l-estate.html/

Stocks took a dive today. I expect more to come. I don't see any solution to the Aug 3 debt deadline besides a clean bill that simply raises the ceiling a few hundred billion to buy some more time. They are OUT of time.

If they are going to raise it I would prefer that they only raise it enough to get to next month and then repeat the process monthly thereby making the President and the Democrats beg for more money every month until election day.

Please don't be naive enough to believe that the republican's won't cry
over their special entitlements also. What you are suggesting just won't happen. The government moves too slow for that to happen.

Thanks!

Something like that. I didn't really read the entire news article, I just saw it in passing when I was browsing the Google News business section. I was wondering why silver was rising instead of dropping after the passage of the debt ceiling.

Anyone see the chart today that shows how the gold price mimics the debt ceiling almost perfectly since the late 90s? I can't find the link right now but it was spooky.

$2000 gold by the end of this year.

Now approaching $1700, and, wow, it continues to mirror the debt limit! If that trend alone continues gold will be $3000 by 2020.

Grr, I haven't been able to put together enough cash to buy more yet. Silver is lagging a bit so maybe that is the way to go for now.

I can also pay off my fixed rate mortgage any time I want. Maybe I'll just wait awhile.
