There was a posting on the NAV of some of the precious metal trusts and funds intraday here.
And there was also a short piece on the competing crime families that are our two established political parties here.
Gold and silver had a nice spike higher earlier in the day on a lower dollar as you can see in the charts below.
The metals gave back some of their gains into the close.
The FOMC did not seem to affect them much despite its dovish waffling and wistful desire to raise rates at least once before the end of the year in December.
The clearing (delivery) reports were brisk for gold and meh for silver. And the reverse for the warehouse reports as silver keeps moving metals in and out, and the gold bullion sits there and looks pretty while the punters swap a pyramid of IOUs per ounce for it.
Let's see if the metals can keep the move going higher.
Have a pleasant evening.
