The U.S. GDP was -0.1% for Q4 and it was expected at 1%. This was its largest drop since 2Q 2009 as U.S. military defence spending plummeted. The Fed left their $85 billion bond-buying stimulus plan intact, citing the monetary stimulus was critical to decrease unemployment, however mentioned this lull in the U.S. economic recovery was temporary.
Investors will be watching the nonfarm payrolls data out tomorrow.
Gold reached multi year highs in Japanese yen again overnight.

Reuters reported a dealer in Tokyo saying "Of course a weaker yen attracts buyers, but I think we shall wait for the price to hit 5,000 yen before we see some selling."
Gold Silver Ratio, Quarterly
India's government announced it does not have plans to for additional taxes or curbs on imports of gold as it waits to see the impact of recent tax increases, said a finance ministry official yesterday.
Respected CNBC financial journalist Maria Baritromo interviewed Marc Faber, a contrarian Swiss investor and publisher of the Gloom Boom and Doom Report.
You said a minute ago that markets go up and down, doesnt gold go up and down too? said Baritromo.
Yes it does go up and down but I am fearful of a systemic crisis, wars and so on and it is because I am fearful that I own gold, said Faber.
Maria Baritromo and Marc Faber
Faber then asked Baritromo if she owned any gold. Her response was that I own earrings and jewellery.
Faber relied, Sorry to say you are in great danger because you don't own any gold...but you have a golden personality!
This tiny snippet of an interview highlights what research at GoldCore has been saying for years. Although many people think gold is a huge bubble like the housing market that burst, it is simply not the case.
How many people do you know that diversify their portfolios with precious metals like silver and gold bullion? Systemic risk is defined as "financial system instability, potentially catastrophic, caused or exacerbated by idiosyncratic events or conditions in financial intermediaries". This is akin to the effect of the proverbial pebble when dropped in the pond, it ripples outward.
The global marketplace is interconnected and potential danger across the pond such as the Lehman Brothers catastrophe affects investors across the world. Bullion investment is a proven hedge to diversify against systemic risk.
Weird shit happened in the last 2 days with gold prices; they spiked up rode high for a while, and then dropped back down like nothing happened. Manipulation is not a conspiracy theory, it’s the Fed standard procedures in action...
If you don’t own LEAD you are in greater danger!
We are presently near the top of the Ammo bubble
The gold bubble might be about ready to pop. Probably smarter to be getting out of gold and into real estate in places like Georgia, Florida, Arizona, and Vegas.
I can’t wait until the ammo bubble bursts. You used to be able to buy 5.56 for .33 cents a round and now it is nearly $1.50 per round. at Cheaper Than Dirt. I’m thinking of selling high and then buying back in. I never thought I would be discussing ammunition like a commodity.
I think so too.
I seriously doubt that...
Maybe, but $1400 is the new $200 as far as the basement floor is concerned.
If you don't have physical, you're too late.
“If you don’t have physical, you’re too late. “
I agree with that.
Not too late at all. I’ve got a great dealer that has all I can buy.
I just bought more US silver dimes for $2.30 each. That is my answer.
I bought from a guy who advertised on Craigs List...he was selling them at a local flea market. (Turns out, he was a 'snowbird' down from Wisconsin)
I would buy from APMEX rather than MONEX. I have my reasons.
APMEX is very trusted and also sells via Ebay and their own site. But seems if you want 90% US silver you buy at their site>>> http://www.apmex.com/Category/528/Silver_Coins_90_40__35.aspx
Thank you so much for this link! I have reasons to buy from APMEX too. Flexibility, for one. Monex requires a thousand dollar investment on their terms, whereas looking at the APMEX site shows I can buy in increments of $100, $500 or $1000 and in a much greater variety of coinage. APMEX offers coins that are pre-rolled and they offer pure dimes, quarters and half dollar bags as well. This is much more affordable for me and I can narrowly target my needs. Thank you so much, once again.
