The Romance of Precious Metals

By Walter Pehowich,

A Love Story.

Hello it’s me, Gold! Remember, just a couple weeks ago as Silver was looking at 15 dollars and saying good bye (or good buy), while I was slipping away…possibly to $1,050. I was your go-to investment. I thought we had a good thing going…you wanted to hold me, put me in a safe place with the hopes of a future together. Meanwhile, your old “friend” the stock market was giving you a migraine and writing bad things in social media about your affair.

Then one day, someone on TV said something just happened to your old fling, Job Number. You left me short…and rallied 25 dollars in fifteen minutes. You broke up with me and went to dinner with Dividend Paying Stocks, you flirt!

And now Silver and I are just hanging together with no place to go. Locked in a trading range.

But we ain’t going down without a fight. We’ll have our day in the sun again. So I guess Silver and I will take a brief vacation together and, if something happens to you, we hope you will return with a gold ring and a silver necklace asking for forgiveness.

So I reserved a chair on the beach. I’ll be sitting there from 1130 to 1160 and Silver is hoping someone will pick her up at 15.00 again.

Have a wonderful weekend
