Stocks And Precious Metals Charts - An Odd Day

"Gold is a trust anchor.With shares, bonds and other securities: there is a risk to everything.If things go wrong, prices may fall.But, crisis or not, a gold bar always holds value.Central banks such as DNB have traditionally had a lot of gold in their house.Gold is the ultimate 'nest egg': the trust anchor for the financial system.If the entire system collapses, the gold stock provides a collateral to start over. Gold gives confidence in the power of the central bank's balance sheet.That gives a safe feeling."

Stocks vacillated around unchanged today. They could not really bring themselves to admit that the 'trade deal' was just another story.

There will be a stock options expiration on Friday.

Have a pleasant evening.
