Gold and silver futures were sharply down the U.S. trading session Monday while President Joe Biden confirmed Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for his second term. The precious metals prices were under a huge pressure and selling pressure accelerated overnight.
December gold was last down nearly USD 41.10 at USD 1,810.4 and December Comex Silver was last down USD 0.421 at USD 24.36 per ounce.
Someone argued that another term for Powell was just an excuse for bullions future traders taking profits after recent good price gains. Some analysts believe bullion markets are likely to continue to be supported by the inflation trade and to be sought out as a hedge against rising and even problematic price inflation.

Gold price is getting back above USD 1,800 per troy ounce. Investors expect it will continue to move higher because it is unlikely the Federal Reserve will be able to fet the inflation under control.
The growth thread of inflation and stagflation are pushing more investors reevaluate their safe-haven hedge and rearrange their investment profolio.
The inflation the year is very different from the last few years. The current inflation is not being driven by consumer demand. Prices go up because of major supply-chain around the world especially the second largest economy, China.
There is nothing the Federal Reserve can do to fix the supply chain as the inflation is on the long side of the track. With gold prices back over USD 1,800 per troy ounce, the market will see bullish momentum very soon.

Senate Democats just passed a USD 3.5 trillion plan early Wednesday. The bill will spend on the establishment of a Civilian Climate Corps, adds new dental, cision and hearing benefits to medicare coverage and investment in affordable housing.
Even though the GOP (Republican National Committee) voted against, the bill has passed without a Republican vote. Biden Adminstration previously said the US government will have tax increases on corporations and wealthy individuals to pay for the USD 3.5 trilliion plan.
There are many conerens about the 3.5 trillion plan will cause inflation. President Joe Biden hit back against information concern on Wednesday and would like to downplayed concerns about price hikes. and cited that his plans for the American economy are working. The President Joe Biden said that the consumner price inflation slowed in July. But his adminstration will also outline a number of resolutions to lower the consumer costs.
However, there is one more concern about his 3.5 trillion plan. There is no one can gurantee the US government will have substantial tax incomes from coporations and wealthy people to cover this plan. Tax incomes may get affected by the pandemic.
I have received a very interesting coin recenetly. It is a coin in a horseshoe shape.
Some people may see western people hang horseshoes over their doors of the buildings. Someone like me would like to ask the reason behind this little thing. Why horseshoes?
Let me share you a story about hanging horseshoes over the doors.
This story is about a hermit – St. Dunstan.
St. Dunstan was a very quite and humble hermit as well as skilled metalworker. He lived in a hut where near the church of St Mary.
One night, there was a Devil came to his hut as a woman. However, St. Dunstan vigilantly noticed that he was a Devil instead of a woman. He saw his cloven hooves beneath the dress he wore. Dunstan noticed that the Devil was limping on one of his cloven hooves. He pretended to offer a shoe to help the Devil. He then nailed a red hot horseshoe onto the Devil hoof.
The Devil screamed and begged St. Dunstan to take it off. Of course St. Dunstan was not going to do it easily.
He said, “You have to make a promise that you will always respect the symbol of the horseshoe and never enter a building that is protected by the sign of a horseshoe.”
Nowsdays, people are still telling about this story to Children in England. And hanging horseshoes over their doors have become one of their tradional. Also, people have different preference about hanging heel up or Down.
Some says that if you hang the horseshoe like a shape of a cup, it means horseshoe fills with good luck, holding it for everyone who lives in that house.
Some says that if you hang the horseshoe downward, it means good luck flows out from the horseshoe and onto all the visitors and family who come into that house.
Up or down? Which one do you prefer? Let me know your thought.
Running a business is a chanllenge particularly during pandemic. Business environment changes, Business model changes, and customers practices chagnes. And companies have to be more innovative and creative to survive than before.
“Your competitors are doing great discount on products prices. Do we need to follow them?” I ask my boss and show him the advestiment on the social media.
“The company’s best advantage should be a qulity product offered at the right price.” He answers with a smile.
“But they are drawing attention now.” I said. I do not have any ideas about price competition and how the business works. Maybe it is the reason why I am an employee not an entrepreneur.
“If we let low-price competition continue to disturb the market order without containment, it will have an adverse effect on, and cause disorder to, the profession in the long run.” He explains.
“So, should we just…ignore them?” I confuse.
“If you have a successful company, you will get your market share. We don’t have a monopoly. We have market share.” He seems like care nothing about it and then sips his morning coffee as usual.
I look at him and wonder. Will I be a successful entrepreneur one day?
