Not to dwell upon today marking our 500th consecutive Saturday penning of this missive: such milestone is merely a function of the world's accepted mathematical practice of functioning in "base 10". (Were we instead oriented to the octal...
Gold just posted its best net weekly percentage gain (+2.6%) since that ending 13 April 2017, (and its best weekly points gain [+35] since that ending 29 April 2016).
To wit this bit from last week's missive: "...[Gold's] trend could well flip to Long within just a week's time simply through normal trading oscillation: the distance from present price (1284) to parabolic (1306) is 22 points; Gold's '...

Returning to San Francisco is always tough enough, but try this for a bring-down: well into our 10th year of faithfully penning The Gold Update without a single Saturday miss, en route (for those of you scoring at home) toward edition No....
Greetings from glorious Squaw Valley, the snow depth in which is a great lesson for Gold to follow. Since our first strapping on the slats back here in '68 -- and in chatting with the ski patrol (who best know) during this present stint...
