We just need Budd to finally capitulate and sell all his gold for stocks... because I'm calling it right now, that when that inevitable day finally comes stocks will immediately start their next cyclical bear market and gold will start it's next cyclical bull market >:D

You can get that same glint from vodka. It's cheaper and tastes better, too. :D

Support is technically 1280-1285. It's bounced off that range 3x since January. I wouldn't even start to worry until if/when we break below that level.

The closest I've come is spices embedded in a McCormick annual report. I read about it and requested a paper copy, but I can't remember if they ever sent it to me. I think they did.

In my link upthread, KShartle said something about having a recipe for Berkshire stock and white wine with mussels. O0

It's so expensive to buy physical. Why bother? SLV or SIVR. I'm a buyer if the gold:silver ratio distorts more, like in the next recession silver may get dragged down because of its industrial uses. If gold is 100x more expensive, I'm a buyer of silver.
