Weekend chillout

Well what an event packed week that was. This week I thought I would draw inspiration from the action in the Gold, Silver and US$ markets. Just because Tim is dead and the US$ is having a dead terrorist bounce it doesn't mean the war between paper and metal is over, far from it. My favourite Kiwi band of all time sum up the situation quite well.

Crowed House ~ Don't Dream its Over

There is freedom within
there is freedom without
Try to catch a deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead
many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Now I'm walking again
to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, Hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, Hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
You know they won't win

Don't let them win
Hey now, Hey now

and live in 2010:

From: RTAmerica | May 5, 2011

Four days after the death of Osama Bin Laden, the story continues to change as the American government flip-flops on the events of Sunday's assassination. As the tale continues to take on new forms daily, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer says the US needs to "clean this up, one way or another." Shaffer champions the release of the Bin Laden death photos that President Obama has decided to remain classified, saying "This was done in the name of the American people. They have the right to know what they did."

Gold & Silver get thrown under the bus to rescue the US$

Another day, another London and New York trading session where Gold & Silver (and Oil) get hammered down in a massive short squeeze rally in the US$. Whilst many talk about shorts in the silver market, the recent shorting of US$ as it was heading for a near death experience of below 72 on the USD Index was many multiples of anything ongoing in Silver & Gold.

Many analysts have suggested that whilst Obama's popularity may have experienced a boost with the killing of some frozen Saudi Arabian, Obama and Clinton are certainly all smiles over the murder of Tim, the real reason for the thawing out Tim was to save the US$ from the pits of Hell. As a result anyone on the short side of 72 on the USD Index have been cluster bombed for days on end as the index has risen back above 74. Also those traders long the Aussie$ over the $1.10 mark must be hurting with the AUD going below $1.06 overnight.
