Great and Wonderful Monday Morning Folks,
The turns have become fast and furious in our precious metals arenas with Gold adding value with the trade at $1,962.20 up $12.40 and close to the high at $1,968.50 with the low at $1,939.10. Silver leads the volatility with its trade at $27.20 up 94.2 cents with its high so far at $27.305 with the low down at $26.10. The US Dollar is barely above another set of double zeros with the value pegged at 93.055 down 3 points yet recovering from the low at 92.88 with the high nearby at 93.115. Of course, all this happened before 5 am pst, the Comex open, the London close, and after reporter Millie Weaver and her husband were arrested by the deep state lackey’s just before her ShadowGate movie came out. This report is truly worthy of the 1 hour and 22 minutes of time to review.

What antifa wanted didn’t happen, no violence from all those armed citizens at all. That must’ve completely pissed off the financial supporters of the fairytale group and has me laughing hard. Look at all those armed citizens being responsible and law abiding. I think the Democrats idea of removing guns from law abiding citizens and the NRA, are failing in epic fashion, what say you?
Also of note, and not reported much because it proves America is not warring like it used to, is Trump has secured a historic deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and immediately after, Joe Hiden claimed he and Obama helped but that story was shut down immediately! So here we are, at the beginning of the week, with precious metals recovering from the failures of the shorts to scare out the buyers, as debt instruments continue to stink up the centrals balance sheets and as the physical shortages in precious metals continue. So, keep the faith, have a prayer for all, and keep the attitudes positive no matter what, and you too will …
