[…] Stocks attempted to rally again today, cheered on by the financial TV muppets and spokesmodels, riding the buzz from yesterday’s retail sales numbers, and various fantasies about a cure for the coronavirus.
But alas, and again, stocks had their early rise, but then fell back into the close to finish lower or unchanged.
Gold and silver were under pressure most of the day, but managed to eke out a small gain into the close.
The Dollar gained a very small bit as well.
I cannot stress enough how volatile the situation is beneath the surface.
