Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - A Wake of Vultures, A Flood of Greed

"Greed, I say, is a great flood; it is a whirlpool that sucks a person down, a constant yearning, always seeking a hold, continually in movement."

Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha

"What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris?  What is the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?"

Leonard Cohen

“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.  People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given away in marriage, up to the very day Noah entered the ark.  Then the flood came, and swept them all away.

And they said to him, 'Where will this happen, Lord?' And He said to them, 'Where death is, there will be a gathering of vultures.'”

Luke 17:26-27, 37

Stocks attempted to rally again today, adding on to their gains from yesterday.

But alas, they failed, and the futures closed firmly in the red.

Gold and silver advanced a bit again.

Nature continues to thwart the will of the powerful.

Dolly and I enjoyed the afternoon with a thoroughly satisfying nap.

It's the little things that make life worth living.

Have a pleasant evening.
