closed on Friday at $783.90, another 27-year high. Gold is therefore only

on the week compared to gold's 2.6% advance. Nevertheless, silver remains
within its pennant consolidation pattern formed since last year.
see in the above charts the divergence between silver and gold that I
highlighted in the last alert. Gold has broken above its May
2006 high, but silver is still below last year's high. Silver needs to break
above $14.85 to confirm that both precious metals have resumed their major
uptrends. As I noted in the last alert, this non-confirmation is not a reason
for worry, but it does represent something we should be watching carefully.
the US Dollar Index closed the week at another record low.
trends are clear. The precious metals are trending higher, while the dollar
is heading lower. I see no reason why these trends are about to reverse
corrections can of course occur at any time, but don't let those distract
you. Go with the major trend. Own the precious metals and avoid the dollar.
