There was a whiff of more serious concern in the markets this afternoon.

Gold and silver are still coiling under some market pressure from the usual suspects, loco London, New York, and Washington DC.

My son missed the train crash in Hoboken this morning by ten minutes. Never so glad to have him answer the phone promptly.
God's tender mercies.
Have a pleasant evening.
