The dollar is at a one year high.vs the Euro. Can you dispute that?
With the dollar at highest point in a year there is your cause for retreat from gold and silver. The fed cutting back on buy treasuries and Putin creating havoc in Europe puts pressure on silver. I think it is a good time to buy because the rosy picture of the US economy is smoke and mirrors.
Ukraine Says Russian Military Vehicles Have Crossed Border

One Ukrainian military commander told the BBC that pro-Russian rebels may be trying to open a new front in the conflict.
Ukraine says Russian military vehicles crossed the border in southeastern Ukraine on Monday.
Correspondent Karoun Demirjian tells our Newscast unit that the accusations from the Ukrainian military come just as Russia announced it was sending another aid convoy into Ukraine.
Reporting from Moscow, Karoun filed this report:
"A Ukrainian defense spokesman says a group of Russian tanks and military vehicles have crossed into the far southeastern corner of the country, potentially opening up a new front in the government's ongoing conflict with pro-Russian separatists.
"It is the latest charge from Ukraine that Russia has been helping separatists fighting against government troops in the eastern part of the country.
"Russia's foreign minister denied having any knowledge of the incident Monday. But he announced that Russia would send a second aid convoy to eastern Ukraine sometime this week.
"Last Friday, Russia sent a shipment of humanitarian goods into eastern Ukraine without the government's permission."
The BBC reports that Ukraine was worried that the first convoy also included military help for the pro-Russian rebels.
The news service adds that Ukraine says today's column included armored personnel carriers and 10 tanks.
"Ukraine's military said border guards had halted the column about 5km (3 miles) north-east of Novoazovsk, which is about 10km from the frontier in the far south-east of Ukraine," the BBC reported. "Heavy clashes were reported at the village of Markyne."

Cowen & Co. semiconductor analyst Timothy Arcuri today writes in a brief note to clients that Intel (INTC) is unlikely to win business for baseband wireless chips with Apple (AAPL) in the iPhone. Arcuri, who has a Hold rating on Intel shares ...
That part bothers me.
"No one has done well buying ARM since April 1st" If it up today people who bought yesterday did well or even earlier today.
It is up 3 bucks today. So they may have done well buying ARM. Most people are short term unless they get caught in a stock and don't want to dump it at a loss.
no anxiety , just watching peculiar moves. The stock has been oversold near term and moves up to toward 33 than large dumping brings it right back down.
How does that create a meltdown? Stagnated it may be, but no "meltdown is probable.
Didn't at least one of our posters talk about it as if it were true the other day? Seems fewer alias negative posters working the board at the moment.
Someone or two will go to jail for this. lol
There's A Horrible Hoax Involving Intel And The Israeli/Gaza Conflict Going Around
By Julie Bort

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich
Someone has sent out a fake but official-looking press release trying to drag Intel into the Israeli/Gaza conflict.
"It's a hoax," Intel spokesperson Chuck Mulloy told us.
Intel is being targeted because it's a huge employer in Israel and is in the process of building a $6 billion facility there.
The fake press release falsely announces that Intel is suspending those investments. And the people perpetrating the hoax are going all out to make it look official. Not only have they set up a spoof website that looks like Intel's real PR site, but they have a guy answering the phone number included in the press release.
We called the number and a man with an American accent answered, "Hello?" We asked him if he was Intel PR and he said he was and then tried to convince us that the news was real. He told us, "We're not closing anything in Israel, we're just putting on hold for now our investment. It will very likely go through in a few months." He told us "we are trying to get ahead of ourselves" so Intel wouldn't suffer from "negative opinion."
Intel is investigating the incident. In the meantime, if you read reports about Intel condemning one side or another between Israel and Gaza, don't believe it.
