Gold and silver are directly benefiting from the decline in the U.S. Dollar Index. In fact, the entire stock market is rising as the U.S. Dollar Index declines intra-day. Gold and silver are both making new highs this morning. The SPDR Gold Shares is trading higher by 0.68 cents a share to $150.49 a share. The next important intra-day resistance level for the GLD should be around the $151.00 area.
The iShares Silver Trust(NYSE:SLV) is off to the races this morning. The SLV is trading higher by 0.59 cents to $47.95 a share. Traders must watch for intra-day resistance around the $48.00 and $48.50 levels. If the U.S. Dollar Index somehow bounces higher throughout the day this will put selling pressure on gold, silver and most everything else in the stock market.
