Gold has done it! It took 11 years but it finally (albeit unfortunately) crashed through its channel support line of $1,690.00 and 200-day simple moving average of $1,663.07 to close out Thursday at $1,645.90 (with an intraday low of $1,636.00) down $22 from the previous day. Tomorrow is December 21st, 2012, the day the Mayan calendar predicted the world would experience an apocalypic event, so might we be in for a further major decline (just kidding) decline?
Check out this chart for a look at gold’s performance over the past few days.
Stay tuned for key updates in the next few days on this very important channel support test.

My previous article on gold & silver went viral with almost 30,000 reads on munKNEE.com alone and continues to be read by hundreds of goldbugs daily. Below is an updated chart and analysis suggesting that gold & silver have further to drop before they go parabolic. Take a look and share it with friends.
Gold & silver have pulled back over the past two weeks after both faced strong resistance from the upper horizontal line of their respective trading ranges [and continue to flucuate within their] 12-month Trading Ranges of $1,540 – $1,800 and $26.50 – $36 respectively. HUI and XAU levels have pulled back and are testing the lower boundary of their rising wedges [but look likely to move upwards within their respective wedges (530 – 570 for the HUI and 200 – 215 for the XAU) before moving higher]. Check out my technical analysis below for details.
At the end of the day the gold price is not a mystery – it’s a proxy for dollar weakness. After spending the previous fall and winter testing new nominal highs above $1,800, future investors may come to view…2012 as the opportunity of the decade. Gold has shown its strength and retreated.

I believe it is important to mitigate the risk of loss with your physical bullion by diversifying the locations where you hold it. To this end, I think it is wise to have some bullion on your property, some in secure storage off site, a portion stored with an ETF like CEF and ideally at some stored at a location overseas. In order to obtain the overseas diversification, I [recommend BullionVault because, while their 43,000 customers have already done business with them at some of the lowest costs available, they have just reduced their initial commission fee by 37.5% – from 0.8% to just 0.5%! Let me explain further some of the advantages of doing business with Bullionvault.] Words: 796
Savers will not stand idly by and watch their savings get wiped out by taxes and inflation….[which] is good news for investors who buy and hold commodity assets today – and it’s also a stark reminder to not be fooled by the short-term head fakes that might make it look like the commodity bull is over. Stay the course – the biggest profits are yet to come. [Here’s why.] Words: 405
What is developing in the markets is not the beginning of another leg down in gold, but a second chance to get positioned for what should be a very profitable intermediate degree rally over the next 2-3 months. [Let me explain further with a number of charts to support my position.] Words: 460

We’ve been surprised at the recent action in the precious metals complex. During the recent correction the shares were showing quite a bit more strength than the metals. Then the shares took a dive below support yet the metals maintained their recent lows! How do we interpret this wild volatility in the relationship between the shares and the metals? Quite often we look at daily and weekly charts. Now is the time to take a look at the monthly charts which can help us get a better read on the larger trends at hand. Words: 636
With President Obama being re-elected we can expect four more years of a Washington-centric controlled economy with a rolling program of borrow, print, spend and pretend; similar to the last four years….[What affect will such fiscal irresponsibility have on the U.S. dollar, gold and silver?
