REAL TIME PSLV WEEKLY CHART
In looking forward to see what the price action has in store for us, lets take a look at the real time weekly line chart above and identify some price objectives and make some projections into the summer of 2012.
If we take the December 14, 2012 low of 12.36 as the low of the 2012 cyclical wave pattern, then we can identify the high of 16.13 made on February 29, 2012, as the short term top wave count anticipated in our Jan 2, 2012 report as the first leg of a five wave pattern unfolding in 2012 projecting prices into the 19.15 price trading range by July 15, 2012.
In using the low made on March 22, 2012 of 13.11, it appears the correction from the highs made in February 29, of 16.13 was the second and corrective wave completion pattern.
Let me point out that from the low of 12.36 made on Dec 2012 to the high made on February 29, 2012 of 16.13, it is a very impressive gain of approximately 3.77 point gain or 30.5%!
If the silver market is the investment of the decade, current prices around the 14 dollar price range could be offering a historical buying opportunity!
There is no question Mr. Eric Sprott is leading the silver parade in 2012 with the PSLV Silver Trust Fund.
