How was that for a precious metals' Happy New Year? For 2022's opening five-day stint, Gold traded down as much as an annoying -2.7% and Silver an indecent -6.0%. And yet in commencing this 22nd year of the 21st century, we've had far...
Welcome to next year: 'tis here. And we got that which for we anticipated across Gold's final five trading days of 2021: an "Annual Finale Rally", successfully so for the now 18th time in the past 21 years.
With but five trading days remaining in 2021, Gold -- as we'll show -- traditionally is the gift that keeps on giving into year-end. But first, we've this: The last time 25 December arrived on a Saturday was 11 years ago in 2010:

Let's start with October's Consumer Price Index (CPI) as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: its excitedly-disseminated reading was +0.9% (which annualized is a whopping +10.8%). "Oh, 'tis the worst in 30 years!", they say. "...
Gold, after 18 weeks of being stuck in a maniacal Short trend without price really going anywhere, FINALLY broke the bonds of the M word crowd by flipping to Long -- but not without a mid-week scare: more later on that affair.

The periodic symbol for gold is AU which come from the Latin for gold aurum.
