A big rally in silver, +2.6%, catches the eye of the technicians as SLV breaks out above its 200-day moving average. The last breakout (on the way up) was in January, and it presaged another 20% upside over the following 6 weeks.

  • Above 50-day EMA. 200 must have been a typo.

  • I would refer to the underlying silver chart rather than SLV. The Underlying silver charts has break SMA50 but not SMA200. I would bullish if Silver breaks $$30 or SLV break $29 and hold up above it.

  • NKOTB we broke $30 and successfully closed above it Saturday. Hoping for a run! Would love to see a $35 close.

  • Drew, $35 level ? if there is another development on the QE news that would be easy to reach. but silver is at the over bought level now. lets see if it will hold up above $30 on the pullback

  • Oh absolutely agree it got overbought. Friday, then September are going to be key for silver prices. I was just putting out some wishful thinking on the $35 price point, would just bring a smile to my face (don't have any technical's or graphs stating it will go there) just hoping :)

  • Well, took profit for SLW yesterday, Not so hopeful about QE tomorrow. but still leave SLV with CCsep@27.5. Guess Big Uncle Ben will only take action if there is certainty on the political direction in NOV later.

  • Its just going to tough for Bernanke being an election year, on top of the timing with the EU, he wont want to appear to be influencing the election in any way. Either way, this whole sham has to end eventually, I'm getting sick of it, that's why I stack physical. :) Hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend and enjoyed Friday and today's POP!
