Gold & Silver Spike As Powell Says Fed Prepared To Sustain Bubble Economy, Trump Not Impressed

Gold & Silver are taking a liking to Jerome “Sustain The Expansion” Powell even if President Trump wants MOAR!

Jerome Powell began speaking a 10:00 a.m. at Jackson Hole.

After the standard prep the metals going into a Fed Head speech, gold & silver are responding quite well:

Not a bad little move.

Of course, it’s also a continuation move from the earlier announced escalation in the Trade War by China:

Silver is up some $0.30 from just a few hours ago.

“Trade policy uncertainty seems to be playing a role in the global slowdown and in weak manufacturing and capital spending in the United States,” Powell said in the text of his remarks Friday to central bankers gathered at the Kansas City Fed’s annual symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. “We will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, with a strong labor market and inflation near its symmetric 2% objective.

Translation: We will continue to screw savers and enrich our politicians, ourselves, and the establishment Globalists at the expense of Main Street and the US Dollar.

The question is, are gold & silver now in the clear?

Let’s look to Twitter for clues:

Jerome “Sustain The Expansion” Powell wasn’t quite dovish enough for the President.

Which means gold and silver are likely in the clear for today.

Especially if Trump really gets worked up.

Should be fun to watch.

Indeed.

Stack accordingly…
