The Big Breakouts We’ve Been Waiting For
July 12 (

James Turk:  It was an important day for the precious metals, Eric. There were clear breakouts in both gold and silver from the short-term downtrends in which they have been stuck for the past couple of months.

What’s more, today is the day of the trifecta for which I’ve been waiting for months. Spot gold and silver and the US Dollar Index all closed in New York at break out levels. Spot gold and silver closed above $1950 and $24 respectively. The Dollar Index is trading below 102…

In fact, the dollar has been getting walloped. The US Dollar Index is down five days in a row, during which it dropped an astounding 2.7%.

What’s more worrying is the dollar’s big picture. Look at this 3-year chart of weekly US Dollar Index prices.

US Dollar Has Broken Through Key Support

It’s been pretty much all downhill for this Index since October. Two dead-cat bounces couldn’t break above the short-term downtrends (two red lines). 

And today the US dollar Index is at a new 17-month low, but we shouldn’t be surprised. The dollar is being destroyed. Since unconstitutionally ending its link to gold, the dollar has been mismanaged, causing its purchasing power to erode.

As a reminder, from the founding of the country in 1787 to the founding of the Federal Reserve in 1913, gold was $20.67 per ounce, which established more than a century of stable prices and a strong, growing economy.

What we have seen over the past week is a flight from the dollar. Some of that wealth has moved into the precious metals. Some has moved into the stock market. Bond prices have bounced too, but bonds and other dollar denominated debt instruments (like bank accounts, T-Bills, etc) should be avoided because they become less valuable as the purchasing power of the dollar is eroded. All you will get back is inflated dollars, assuming you get back anything at all by not getting caught in a bank bail-in or a fiat currency debt default.

It is too early to say whether this recent flight out of the dollar will continue, or let alone accelerate. But it might, which is why physical gold and silver are important assets to own in an uncertain future.
