Happy Thanksgiving!

With so much doom and gloom around, I want to remind everyone that we are still truly blessed here in the USA.  Please remember to see the good tomorrow and count your blessings,  Nothing cures gloom as fast as a positive outlook on life.

Gold reached a 16 year high breaking $450 an ounce, and is expected to go higher.

Oil is still over $48 a barrel, just coming off it’s all time high.

Currency markets have the Dollar lower against all the major currencies.
