Nothing official about the USA not accepting Crimean referendum. This has been the way with the USA and its NATO allies after world war two which included breaking up of erstwhile USSR. It is all about leadership and hopefully Russia is under a strong leader. The USA and its post world war two NATO allies have had indirect control of key natural resources regions of the world on some charge or the other. Afghanistan president Karzai is trying his best to ensure that US troops are not permanently stationed there. I am very sure there will be a political coup there and Mr. Karzai will be removed before the December end deadline. This implies continued tensions between the USA and Russia and firm gold and silver prices. I am not sure whether the Federal reserve meet can reverse the bullish direction of gold due to Ukraine.
World air travel may be changed after the tragic vanishing act by the Malaysian airline plane. There is one thing for sure, more and more highly educated and highly skilled people are becoming religious maniacs. This is not good for global peace and prosperity. These few idiots like the pilots of the Malaysian airline create another big damage to their religion. Though I still believe that the western state heads are a bigger terror to the common man and small nations and that in the name of globalization they indirectly annex nations. The phrase "Trade sanctions", "Global isolation" etc are just some form of indirect invasion and nothing else.
Future outlook on interest rates by the Federal reserve will be the key. A $10 billion taper has been factored in by the markets. A hawkish federal reserve this week can result in more losses for the greenback and continuity of rise for gold and silver. Copper and other industrial metal should form a bottom this week and start to rise. Chinese will take steps to ensure that there is higher growth in their region.

Bearish below $97.90 with $97.40 and $96.90 as price target

- Crude oil can rise to $100.80 and $102.80 as long as it trades over $97.90
