Specialty: Technical Analysis My early years were not so rich, I had a poor family, at age 12 I landed my first job as dishwasher for $6/hr, by 14 years old my mother suggested to cut grass around our town for extra money, so with what little money I had, I put into some fliers and a lawnmower....

  • $SLV Technical Explanation : Not So Bearish Yet !  2 comments

    Silver has really done very little in the past year and a half, only making a lower high since last year and ranging within a $4 trading range since August in 2013, and now silver finds itself only 60 cents away from the low in 2013.

    The bullish case for silver is really riding on the "triple bounce" from the 2013 low of the $18.18 futures price, while there are other supporting indicators such as the 2010 resistance holding as support, and the oversold RSI readings on the daily-monthly time frame.

    The bearish case is riding on the break of support, $18.18 must break, a lower low, even by pennies, should be considered a big red flag indicator for the direction of silver in the long term. The lower highs are considered a bearish indication, while there is also a descending triangle formation which is forewarning of a break in support.

    At this point in time, if anyone is looking to trade the metals, take profits now from your short positions, and make new short positions on a break of support $18.18, you will have a nice long term $8 decline to the old 2008 support. If going long wait for the bounce above $18.18, remember that risk management is THE key .

    Spamwich nice article. Thanks for doing it.
    Where do you think Silver is going short term with it at a higher level this week at $19.21 right now?
    I heard if it went higher Monday -Tuesday it could be on a nice Run up.
    I have no silver right now.
    I am hoping that Gold drops to form a triple bottom at $1200.
    Will Silver follow Gold or will Gold follow Silver short term?

    Author’s reply » I find that silver is typically the leading indicator to gold.I do see a descending channel on the Weekly, with a range of 80 cents, price is now at the top of the range so assuming resistance holds it will target 18.40 ish in the next week or so. I would like to see a higher high ( Above $22.50 futures) before I start to assume that the bear run is over. If you go back to 2011, there has not been a single higher high made, so to break that trend would certainly be encouraging . I may personally enter some $25 SLV 2015 calls if we get another bounce in the $18 region, but its all talk at this time lol.
