    The greenback flat on its face, in dire need of an intensive care bed.

    Meanwhile, one can smell FEAR in various quarters of the Central Banks of this world.

    A good indicator of this fear is the price action of gold on the spot market. Very large selling orders are hitting the tape every time the PM get near 800$.

    Looks like that various big players are not eager to see gold breaking the 800 USD level. The canary in the coal mine may chirp but not scream.

    It would be akin to admit that there might be a REAL problem with inflation after all. Can’t have that if you want to save an assets-based economy.

    But the trend is pretty obvious thus far: gold has never pierced its 65-week MA since 2001 and all corrections have been met by more buying and higher prices.

    For a barbarous relic that doesn’t even have the minimal decency of paying interest nor dividends, that’s a pretty good performance.

    Et tu, greenback? Had enough?
