After what seems like an eternity, elongated by the distraction of Biden stretching out the timeline for his choice of FED chair, I just heard in the backround as I write this post, that the announcement will be today. My title doesn’t refer to that news but to the fact that the precious metals have acted as expected and outlined in my November 5th post.(see below) I did get distracted by the noise, thinking the liftoff would come earlier than the usual, just after Thanksgiving that I have written about often.
