  • The Fear index as represented by VIX was up about 12% to levels not seen since early July of this year.
  • Gold futures could not hold 1700 as the dollar rallied and the 2 year yield shot up to 3.865%
  • Bitcoin could not hold 20K for most of the week.
  • More Fed rate announcements next week with Costco and FedEx earnings.

Gold & Silver

GLD is having a hard time holding the 200 EMA as the dollar continues its 20 year rise. Silver on the other hand rose 5%!

Silver rose 5% and is trading between the 20 and 50 day EMAs. Is this a place to hide?

Health – 🧅Onion Power

Money is nothing without our health, that is why we continue to discuss ideas to strengthen health, which relates to overall wealth. This week we feature the all powerful onion. This culinary staple can be added to many different kinds of dishes and salads. And it has amazing health benefits.

Onions contain antioxidants and compounds that fight inflammation, decrease triglycerides and reduce cholesterol levels — all of which may lower heart disease risk. Their potent anti-inflammatory properties may also help reduce high blood pressure and protect against blood clots.
