Old Yeller closed at $1,753.90, -34.30 on the week and off -65.60 for September. Silver came in off -1.40 on the week, closing at 22.36Neil what powerful, with resistance at $20. Silver had been doing nothing more than screaming nonstop but the decent drop a few weeks back shows a fast recovery. Hold off on buying the metals at least for now.

The yen vs the dollar


The dollar was stronger against the currencies because of expected inflation due to increased spending, although the jury is still out as too how much of a real increase we will see. The yen is currently at resistance of .0091 leaving the next resistance at .0095 followed by .0099.

I expect the dollar to remain mixed until Biden passes his corporate tax increase and this is when things will go bad.
