If Angela Merkel is not re-elected on 9/22, many predict the Eurozone will start to unravel. And then we have the Federal budget that is due on 9/30 and i suspect any decision, or lack thereof, will be extremely positive for silver and gold. The debt ceiling ( grossly manipulated) hangs in the background and should be breached as early as mid-October. I doubt that raising the debt ceiling by $trillion+ can be spun as positive or even as a neutral event for the dollar and thus PM's should benefit greatly when that event occurs. So many other black swans also circling overhead. Watching their flight patterns is as much fun as watching a Superbowl Game....one never knows what the final score will be.
