I wasn’t going to write anything until next week, but reporting on the annual performance for gold and silver in the first week of the year is appropriate and timely. Publishing the following table has been an annual event in my work for...
Since the November election, the stock market has become an amazing thing. How amazing? The election was twenty-six trading days ago. The Dow Jones Index closed at new all-time highs on sixteen of them…with the last on Tuesday of this...
Just when you think you understand the rules of the game, someone changes them. I’m talking about the relationship between the Dow Jones Index and its trading volume. Last week I noted how since January 2000, the Dow Jones and its volume...
