Yellow Dog or Yellow Dawg or Yaller Dawg (gold nickname)

Gold is sometimes nicknamed “yellow dog” or “yellow dawg” or “yaller dawg.” “Not bad considering everyone was slamming the yellow dawg” was cited in print in 2002. The financial blog Jesse’s Cafe Américain explained on December 16. 2013:

“When I first became interested in gold, traders on the chat boards used to call it ‘the yellow dog’, or yaller dawg if one was of the Southern persuasion. That was because after the long and brutal bear market, gold was wallowing in the mid 200’s and was getting little interest and absolutely no respect.”

Gold has also been called the “anti-dollar,” a “barbarous relic” and the “currency of last resort.”

The yellow dawg just can not see 1800. (at this moment.)

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - FOMC Meeting This Week - No Yellow Dogs Allowed

When I first became interested in gold, traders on the chat boards used to call it ‘the yellow dog’, or yaller dawg if one was of the Southern persuasion. That was because after the long and brutal bear market, gold was wallowing in the mid 200’s and was getting little interest and absolutely no respect.

When this dog turns higher again, and I believe that it will, it may show us a run that would put a greyhound to shame.

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Flight To Safety, Undeniable - Yellow Dog, Wagging

Gold popped very hard today on what is undeniably a flight to safety out of fiat currencies and into something that is durable in a crisis with less counterparty risk. It was a clear result of the tension in the Crimea.
