Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Called to the Supper of the Lamb - Expiry, FOMC and Non-Farm Payrolls

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
        Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
        Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you.
        Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
        Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
        Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
        Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God—
        It was never between you and them anyway.”

Mother Teresa

"Little children, I am with you only a little longer...  I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.   Just as I have loved you, so you should love one another.  By this people will know that you are my followers, if you have love for one another.

If anyone would love me, they will keep my word.  And the Father and I will come to them, and dwell with them.  Anyone who does not keep my word does not love me."

John 13:33-35 14:23

What a tangled web of complexity and exceptions we weave to twist this simple and straightforward commandment to our wills.  These are the illusions that we cherish and hold so close, as a mask to hide our deformities from the world, and from ourselves.

Alphabet missed its numbers after the bell. Oops

Today was a minor option expiration for the precious metals on the Comex.

There will be an FOMC decision on Wednesday and a Non-Farm Payrolls report on Friday.

It was a risk on day, as the dollar and gold moved lower, and stocks hit new highs on several indices.

Even though it was foretold, it is still surprising that so many are letting their souls slip away.

But it is a madness that they are thrown away for so little.

For what does it profit a man?

Have a pleasant evening.
