LATE REPORT 2-23-2018

Gold had an unremarkable day today finishing at $1329.50 and down $2.36. Silver had a nondescript day as well settling at $16.53 and down 5¢. For the week, gold was down $15.00 (- 1.3%) and silver was down 10¢ (-.6%). With the amount of uncertainty and volatility floating around the markets this past, we consider the two metals holding their own something of a victory and look to the coming week for better days.

For the record, after all that happened in this already tumultuous year, gold is up 2.1% for 2018 and silver is down 4.4%. Tellingly, the Dow Jones Industrial Average – for all the publicity, analysis and controversy that surrounds it – is up a competitive 2.1% on the year.

Quote of the Day
"For it is, so to speak, a game of Snap, of Old Maid, of Musical Chairs — a pastime in which he is victor who says Snap neither too soon nor too late, who passed the Old Maid to his neighbour before the game is over, who secures a chair for himself when the music stops. These games can be played with zest and enjoyment, though all the players know that it is the Old Maid which is circulating, or that when the music stops some of the players will find themselves unseated." – John Maynard Keynes

EARLY REPORT 2-23-2018

Gold is tracking sideways this morning under generally quiet market circumstances. Silver is also off to a slow start. Gold is trading at $1329.00, down $1.50 on the day. Silver is trading at $16.50, down 4¢ on the day.

Things might get a little more interesting as the day progresses with four different Fed regional presidents scheduled for speeches today and the release of the Fed's Monetary Policy Report later this morning. The policy report, we are being told, is a template for chairman Powell's Congressional testimony next week. Given the unexpected maelstrom generated by release of minutes to the Fed's January meeting, it is difficult to guess how Wall Street is likely to react to the report, or the speeches for that matter.

If rumors that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Chief of Staff John Kelly are leaving the White House come to fruition, the impact on financial markets could be significant. Reuters is reporting that officials have said that"tensions could blow over, at least for now."

Chart of the Day

Chart notes: The S&P VIX is quiet for now, but still running high for the period and on a hair trigger, as we saw with the reaction to the Fed's January minutes earlier this week. Chart courtesy of TradingEconomics.com with thanks.
